Brunei has restricted citizens and residents from leaving the country as it saw a spike of 10 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Mar 15, taking the total tally to 50.
The restriction will start Mar 16, according to a statement from the Ministry of Health on Sunday (Mar 15).
Seven of the new cases are linked to a religious event in Kuala Lumpur that also saw two Singaporean congregants contract the virus.
Citizens and residents of the country of around 450,000 can only leave in “certain circumstances such as undergoing urgent medical care, attending court hearings or resuming study abroad", said the ministry.
