  1. 556 persons in self quarantine? That number seems a bit excessive.Have they been exposed to the Virus.We need more info on why so many in self quarantine.

  2. The govt need to put a proper system in place to monitor the movement of these persons for the 14 days of quarentine…. In collaboration with the govt, we the citizens & residents need to report any person seen violating the required protocols….. If we do that, then we will be protecting ourselves & love ones from this deadly virus
