KUCHING, June 7: Sarawak reported zero new Covid-19 cases today, reveals the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) in a statement.

The cumulative total of Covid-19 cases in Sarawak remains at 555.

The committee disclosed there was one Covid-19 patient who has recovered and been discharged from Sibu Hospital today.

Meanwhile, there are seven new person-under investigation (PUI) cases while two PUI cases are awaiting laboratory results.

SDMC noted a total of 145 Sarawakians returned to Sarawak today as persons-under surveillance (PUS). There are 1,825 PUS who are still undergoing quarantine at selected hotels throughout Sarawak whilst 13,648 Sarawakians have completed their 14-day quarantine as of today.

The committee attributed the declining number of new daily Covid-19 cases to the implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO), Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) and social distancing practices in public, adding that this is an encouraging sign that Sarawak is able to curb the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, it reminded the public to continue practising social distancing and high levels of personal hygiene as with the gradual reopening of various economic sectors, adopting social distancing across all age groups will become the new norm and culture in society.

Thus, it encouraged the public to shift to the new normal of living for the safety of all people. — DayakDaily
