The country's roads were quiet as soon as the 2-week nationwide 'Operasi Pulih' commenced last night. Aimed to reduce movement as well as risk of COVID-19 transmissions, all citizens and residents are required to be at their respective residences from 8 in the evening to 4 in the morning.
As RTB crew took a closer look at several major roads in the Brunei Muara District, it was found that the number of vehicles on the roads have decreased by 7 in the evening. The public is only allowed to leave the home for emergency matters or for critical frontliners only including shift workers.
Most premises closed as early as 6:30 or 7 in the evening to enable employees to go home early. Anyone violating this directive without any reasonable excuse will be issued a 100-dollar compound fine for each offence.
Citizens and residents must work together in curbing COVID-19 in the country and assist the government in implementing various initiatives in phases to bring the country out of this pandemic.
