Brunei: Govt announces that only people with BruHealth app allowed to go out

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Sept 25 (Borneo Bulletin/ANN): Only individuals with the BruHealth app on their mobile phones or individuals who share the app with family members, caregivers, employers, managers or friends are allowed out of their homes starting today from 6pm.

Anyone failing to comply with the directive under Section 62A, Chapter 204 of the Infectious Diseases Act will face legal action.

“The public is reminded to abide by all directives issued to control the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic,” Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Mohd Isham said during a press conference in the capital.

“The public is advised against leaving the house without a proper reason.

"Those who need to venture out should avoid crowded areas, and practice physical distancing,” he said.

Justifying the mandatory use of the BruHealth app, the minister said a number of individuals were found without mobile phones upon inspection during roadblocks, while some were found using screenshots of other people’s codes.

The minister said, “To bring the situation under control, those going out must use the BruHealth app.

Those without mobile phones must be accompanied by someone who has their information in his or her BruHealth app.”

The public is reminded to always practice personal safety measures including wearing face mask, frequently washing hands as well as practicing proper coughing and sneezing etiquette. - Borneo Bulletin/ANN
