Senior minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the Ministry of Health ( MOH) found 10 individuals who screened positively for coronavirus disease (Covid-19) by screenings at Kuala Lumpur International Aiport (KLIA).
Ismail said in a statement issued today that from June 10 to June 27 MOH performed screenings of 6,573 individuals. The MOH has screened 6,609 people at the KLIA International Airport gateway from 10 to 27 June 2020.
For the total, 6,573 individuals were identified to be Covid-19 negative and had been exposed to mandatory quarantine procedures at home. A further 36 individuals were considered to be cautious and sent to hospital for treatment.
A total of 148 people crossed Johor’s state boundary and they were all required to attend home quarantine. Police have carried out searches on 427 home quarantine cases and considered them to have met with the government’s normal operating procedures, Ismail added.
The government has required Malaysians who are returning abroad to undergo quarantine at home since June 10. Many traveling abroad are expected to download the MySejahtera application, and the authorities must issue a wristband for simple identification and tracking. The current conditional MCO and the recovery process would only work if the basic operating procedures were completely complied with by both parties.
The Ministry of Health therefore encourages all to remain consistent with the SOP and to remain cautious in order to insure that the spread of COVID-19 infection can be stopped. The even highlighted that we should look after ourselves, our friends, our societies and we look after the world. If not us, then who else?
With this, many found to be flouting the rules will pay a RM1,000 compound or may be taken to trial. It’s gonna be a challenging round of implementing rules again may this give a way to prevent the increasing numbers of new COVID-A19 cases.
