He said that the citizens responded to the appeal launched by the Ministry of Health having sought local health services to collect the samples.
The other four cases are of individuals coming from Luanda but who claim to have had no contact with passengers from abroad or with contaminated families, but for safety reasons they also decided to join testing.
