The Covid-19 screenings in Sabah is conducted on five per cent of the population in localities, focusing on active clusters and risk groups, says Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

The Health director-general said that on Monday, adding that the ministry also looked at clusters in a particular locality and conducted more screenings there, citing the Benteng Lahad Datu cluster as an example.

On the rising number of Covid-19 patients being diagnosed in Sabah, Dr Noor Hisham said the number of patients being discharged had also picked up and that balances things up in terms of capacity in the hospitals in the state.
