In an interview with the News Strait Times newspaper, Professor Datuk Dr Awang Bulgiba Awang Mahmud discusses the various measures that can be taken to control the spread of COVID-19 during the upcoming Sabah State election.

Among those measures discussed were postal votes, remote polling stations could be set up in the peninsula and Sarawak, and to stagger polling over a few days or to allow polling centres to close later at 10pm.
