Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar on Friday clarified the lifting of the COVID-19 restrictions when the outbreak is over.

He said, “An outbreak will only be declared over when there are no more cases reported within the second incubation period. For COVID-19, it is 28 days. However, the virus may not be completely eradicated, especially taking into consideration global outbreaks are still not under control. Therefore, it is very important for us to come together to control the spread of the COVID-19 infection in the country so that at least some current restrictions can be reduced slowly and in stages.”
