Makau further urged the Health ministry to trace the 239 passengers and quarantine them.
The matter will be mentioned on April 2.
The report defined measures put in place by the government to address the virus threat in the country.
While most medics have been stationed at the JKIA, more medical personnel have been deployed across international and local airports.
The Health ministry is liaising with the Immigration department to monitor incoming passengers.
“The ministry surveillance teams continually monitors these passengers to review the health status as part of additional measures to manage the risk.”
Amoth added that more surveillance is pushed on people who have been to countries with confirmed covid-19 cases.
“It is important to note that not all Chinese workers are incoming from mainland China, but are nevertheless subjected to the strategic action but self quarantine is an acceptable WHO recommended practice as a precautionary measure to minimise risk of spread.”
