A total of 227 patients with mild symptoms or are clinically well but still test positive are isolated and cared for at community facilities.

Apart from the 30 patients who have died from COVID-19 complications, 15 others who tested positive for the virus were determined to have died from unrelated causes, including three whose deaths were attributed to a heart attack and another four, whose deaths were attributed to coronary heart disease.

Among the 173 confirmed cases reported from 7 April to 13 April, 65 cases have tested positive for their serology tests, 79 have tested negative, and 29 serology test results are pending.
