The public is reminded to continue exercising self-discipline in carrying out preventive measures against Covid-19 as the country enters the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) tomorrow.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said business operators and customers need to maintain social distancing and good personal hygiene.
He said the police, as well as the task force teams in districts, would focus on standard operating procedure compliance at business premises and public places.
The Covid-19 case in the Women and Children Hospital in Likas involves an eight-month-old girl, says Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.
He said the case was detected before the girl was supposed to undergo surgery.
He added that the Ministry was currently conducting active contact tracing for this case.
"We will screen those who have been exposed to the patient. The investigation is ongoing, we just got the report and the progress is ongoing in terms of looking into the cause," he said.
Compounds will still be issued during the Recovery movement control order (RMCO) period which will begin this Wednesday, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said the provisions under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342) were still in force during the RMCO period.
Ismail Sabri said although there would be no more roadblocks and interstate travel restrictions during that period, the public is still required to adhere to the standard operating procedure (SOP) set.
