No new Covid-19 case was registered in Macao over the past day with the city’s tally staying at 1,816 cases as of midnight last night.

Yesterday was the first day that no new case was reported in a day since the current outbreak began on 18 June. 

As of 8 am today, the number of people under follow up has also remained the same, totalling 22,957 individuals, which include same numbers of yesterday’s close contacts (3,541), people with overlapping itineraries (12,398), secondary contacts (1,362), general contacts (253) and accompanying persons (786), according to the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre. 

In the last 24 hours, a total of 238,487 samples have been collected in Macao’s mandatory nucleic acid testing (NAT) for the Key Groups, Key Areas and people who leave home for work – all results are negative. As of 8 am this morning, a cumulative total of 678,772 samples have been collected since 24 July, the centre announced. 

Mandatory testing for the groups above will continue until this weekend, when another citywide NAT is scheduled to take place on Saturday and Sunday, which will require everyone in Macao to undergo the test. The results will be a key factor in the government’s assessment for deciding the city’s next steps.  

Meanwhile, all people in Macao must take a rapid antigen test (RAT) everyday until this weekend and upload the results online. People whose RAT results are positive must immediately call for an ambulance by contacting 119, 120 or 2857 2222.
