Economy Minister Orna Barbivai urges the mandatory quarantine period for asymptomatic coronavirus carriers to be shortened to five days.

“What the CDC recommended for America the great is right for us as well,” Barbivai writes on Twitter.

The tweet comes hours before new quarantine guidelines take effect at midnight, with asymptomatic patients required to self-isolate for seven days instead of at least 10.
