The Health Ministry (KKM) may impose tighter Covid-19 SOPs for the state of Selangor if Covid-19 outbreaks continue.
KKM Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba agreed on plans for stricter SOPs in Selangor IF the Covid-19 situation there cannot be controlled.
“If the virus cannot be curbed, then the proposal for a full MCO might be something we can consider,” he said, as quoted by FMT.
Over 10,000 Covid-19 cases have been reported in Selangor over the past week.
Monday (17 May) saw 1,650 new Covid-19 infections in Selangor.
On Sunday, a total of 153,029 positive cases were reported in the state – with 4,951 active cases and 493 residents dead from the disease.
According to Selangor’s Covid-19 task force (STFC), currently, 1,925,337 people in the state have received their first or second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
The state has also opened several Covid-19 Assessment Centres (CAC) where Covid-positive patients are examined before either being sent to hospital for treatment or to be quarantined at either the Covid-19 Quarantine and Treatment Centre (PKRC) in Serdang or at home.
Dr Adham was also bothered by the increase of late-stage Covid-19 patients nationwide.
He explained that there were more patients coming in with Category 3, 4 or 5 of the disease as well as new variants of the coronavirus.
Previously, Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah revealed that there are four Covid-19 “variants of concern” identified in Malaysia.
Dr Adham said that KKM will proceed to monitor the situation closely.
