The ministry repeated its earlier observation that the first of the two most recent cases was a “close contact of someone who tested positive for covid19,” and the second was still “pending epidemiological investigation.”

It also repeated that of the confirmed cases, 49 were from among  from the group of nationals who recently returned from a cruise.

Forty-six were from the 68 who were brought back from the cruise together.
There were three from among the people who returned separately from the cruise.

It did not give any further information about the rest of the cases.

The ministry will hold a virtual press conference on Monday morning. That is, members of the media who wish to ask questions will have to log in to the press conference online.

It will also be broadcast live on television for the public.
