Who said what: Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (JPBM) chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas notes that this decision was made as authorities observed the current development of the pandemic in the state, as active cases is still high and clusters have popped up.
Why it matters: The state of Sarawak has been hit with a second wave of active Covid-19 cases, causing a hospital to close and clusters to bloom. As such, precautionary action is once again being put in place, such as limited business hours.
