  • 1 Utama released a statement to refute the statement released by JBPD. They clarified that 1 Utama does NOT have 63 Covid-19 cases.
  • From the 6,000 people they tested, they concluded yesterday (14 October), they identified 20 tenant staff and 1 mall management staff as Covid-19 positive. These 21 persons have been swiftly quarantined by KKM to contain the spread and further minimize potential exposure.
  • The statement also rectified that the 44 positive Covid-19 of security guards mentioned in the JBPD’s report did NOT originate from 1 Utama and were not part of the 6,000 mass testings that they conducted.
  • The guards were outsourced contract guards from a third-party service provider where Covid-19 was contracted through a dormitory and not within their premises.
  • According to 1 Utama, they currently only have 22 positive Covid-19 cases (21 + 1 guard who was found positive through MOH’s tracing)
