No positive COVID-19 cases were recorded among more than 140 people who came into contact with the two people who tested positive for the virus at Al Salam Markets, the head of the coronavirus response team at the Ministry of Health, Adnan Ishaq, announced on Tuesday.
Investigation teams will test all those people a further two more times; in a week’s time later and again in two weeks later, to ensure no one contracted the virus.
The source of the two local cases is yet to be identified, he said.
The positive cases from Al Salam markets involve the owner of a food facility inside the establishment and a health product distributor, who was examined while at work in the markets.
