As of yesterday evening, 27 people in Phuentsholing tested positive for COVID-19 of which four cases were detected outside the RRCO’s mini dry port (MDP).

Health Minister Dechen Wangmo, during a live session on BBS television yesterday, said that the situation in Phuentsholing was deteriorating.

Given the situation, Lyonpo said that besides testing all the contacts of the positive cases from the MDP, the entire population in Phuentsholing will be tested.

“Upon the completion of the tests, we’d then know the extent of transmission and the pulse of the epidemic in the community.”

Of the 6,500 samples collected from the town in the past three day, about 5,000 samples were tested so far.
