Currently, the government is tracking down everyone who may have come into contact with the patient.
The CS noted how the virus has been traced from people coming from outside the country as the government is working hard to contain it.
A warning shot was fired to anyone who will fail to self-quarantine themselves as they risk a jail term.
Seven patients out of the 18 that had been kept under observation have been discharged and advised to self-quarantine as confirmed by the CS himself.
