Brunei has implemented COVID night limits for a period of two weeks

Recommended Posts



Brunei is now under a stringent night curfew following the announcement by the health ministry on Monday of 188 new coronavirus cases.

COVID-19 nighttime limits went into force today for a two-week period in an attempt to curb the rising incidence of coronavirus illnesses over the previous week.

Dubbed Operasi Pulih (Operation Recovery), the restrictions are the toughest yet since the pandemic began.

Except for emergencies or vital work, residents are not permitted to leave their houses between the hours of 8 p.m. and 4 a.m.


Health Minister YB Dato Seri Setia Dr Hj Mohammad Isham Hj Jaafar asked for everyone's cooperation to comply with the direction and stop the spread of COVID-19 during his daily news briefing on Monday.

"Hopefully, we'll see less people out in the coming days."
Let's collaborate.
He went on to say, "We're sacrificing two weeks to make sure we can control the virus with [these movement restrictions]."


On August 7, the authorities placed the country on partial lockdown, but new infections continued to rise, reaching a daily high of 326 seven weeks after the COVID-19 restrictions were implemented.

Authorities have slapped a $100 on-the-spot fee to dissuade anyone from breaking the night curfew.


Death toll rises to 38


There are four more.
COVID-19 individuals have died in the last 24 hours, according to the health ministry.

Two of the victims died from the virus – a 51-year-old male and an 82-year-old lady – while the deaths of the other two instances were not linked to COVID-19 since they had pre-existing medical issues.

A earlier instance whose cause of death was under investigation has been designated as a COVID-19 fatality, according to the government.

The official death toll from COVID-19 is 38.


In the last 24 hours, six new clusters have been discovered, including two workplace clusters at Belait-based construction firms Fazrul Sdn Bhd and Kamal Sdn Bhd.

Brunei's active cases hit a new high of 2,343 for the sixth day in a row after 176 patients were discharged overnight.

Forty of the active cases have been admitted to the intensive care unit.
