The number of COVID-19 cases rises to 784




A total of 90 new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed, bringing the number of cases in the current community outbreak to 784, the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Center announced.

Of the new cases reported on Saturday, 60 were detected in the community while 30 were in people under management and control measures.

Meanwhile, health authorities have launched a new Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) program for target groups working in security services, cleaning services and property management which will take place today (Sunday).

People in these key groups should book their NAT via https://eservice.ssm.gov.mo/allpeoplernatestbook/Booking?lang=en

Employers are urged to support the arrangement and allow their employees to go get tested during working hours.

People with code yellow are also expected to undergo nucleic acid testing on Sunday.

For those who fail to get tested on Sunday due to weather conditions, they will be able to do so as early as Monday (July 4), without their health code turning red, authorities add.

Code yellow holders and people working in security services, cleaning services and property management must perform a rapid antigen test (RAT) themselves before going to NAT stations.
