There’s currently a confusion of the number of cases actually reported in the Cluster Utama. The shopping centre has been closed from 11 October 2020 due to the rising number of cases.

To curb with this, 1 Utama became the first shopping mall to conduct mass testing on 6,000 of their tenant and mall staffs.

  • 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)

Stay tuned for more updates!
