VIENTIANE, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Lao Ministry of Health has urged officials at quarantine centers across the country to take greater part in monitoring of the quarantined to make sure they complete their mandatory 14-day quarantine to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If officials see anyone escaping the quarantine centers, they must inform the relevant authorities immediately, Deputy Director General of the Department of Communicable Diseases Control under the Lao Ministry of Health Sisavath Soutthaniraxay told a press conference on Friday.

A total of 2,046 people has been held in quarantine at 28 accommodation centers across the country, said Sisavath.

All people at quarantine centers must have their temperature checked every day.

As of Friday, Laos has tested 112,613 suspected cases with 45 testing positive, and 42 patients have recovered.

Laos detected its first two COVID-19 cases on March 24 last year. Enditem
