The action of certain business owners in banning residents from Ketengah Jaya in Dungun from entering their outlets for fear of Covid-19 infection is a form of discrimination and should not have happened, said Terengganu State Health Department Director Dr Nor Azimi Yunus (pix).
Ketengah Jaya, which is located in Rasau, has a population of 31,000 and so far, has recorded 22 positive cases of Covid-19.
Twenty-three congregants of the Ulul Albab Mosque in Seberang Jertih here have tested negative for Covid-19.
Following the results, all of them, who were placed under quarantine since Tuesday night at the Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department Academy in Wakaf Tapai, Marang, were allowed to return to their families yesterday evening.
A total of 28 students and nine teachers at Sekolah Menengah Agama Sultan Ismail (SMASID) in Dungun underwent Covid-19 screening today after a Form One student of the school tested positive recently.
The school's Parent-Teacher Association (PIBG) deputy chairman Rusdi Muda said the test, conducted by Health Ministry personnel, began at 8.30am and ended three hours later.
