The health agency noted that a multi-sectoral national Emergency Operations Centre (EOC), activated at Level 3, would continue to coordinate the COVID-19 national response activities across the country. It said that if anyone tested positive for COVID-19 but have no symptoms, he or she should stay at home and keep away from other people. The NCDC said that the risk of being infected with the virus would be higher if people relate less than six feet from each other at a crowded public place or if they freely share equipment and not practice social distancing and other habits to stay healthy.
