He said such prompt action would save them and reduce BID cases from longhouses and rural areas. “Anyone with symptoms such as low grade fever, cough and sore throat and loss sense of smell must come for testing and medical review by health personnel at the nearest hospital or health clinic,” Uggah said after a meeting with Betong Division Health Officer Dr Johnny Pangkas to discuss a health education programme for folks in Betong Division.
