KOTA KINABALU, Oct 18 — The State Government will start to carry out daily press conference on Sabah’s Covid-19 situation today.

It is understood that the daily press conference would be held at Wisma Innoprise at 6.30pm.

“Although the daily reports show that the number of Covid-19 cases is high every day in Sabah, the people are advised to not panic and remain calm.

“The increase of cases in Sabah is also due to the expanded field screening results and targeted areas of infection in the 11 red zone districts namely Tawau, Lahad Datu, Semporna, Kunak, Tuaran, Penampang, Putatan, Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Papar and Kota Belud,” he said.
