The number of positive COVID-19 cases in the country has dropped to four after one of the five COVID-19 patients was tested negative.
These four patients include three returning soccer players from the United Kingdom and one citizen that returned from Indonesia.

Mr Sogavare said, nine of the 13 patients who were recently tested negative have been released from the quarantine centers.
