The number of Covid-19 cases is on a rapid rise again.
In a statement by the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur issued out on 14 October, a Covid-19 positive case has been identified in the Church of the Sacred Heart, Jalan Peel.
It is said that the person had attended mass at the aforementioned church on 27 September and they have tested positive for Covid 19 on 12 October. They are currently undergoing treatment at the Sungai Buloh Hospital.
The statement says that the person was asymptomatic at that time and the mass held was compliant with the MKN SOP and the Archdiocesan Guidelines before, during and after to reduce the risk of infection.
The church is cooperating with the authorities by giving them the seating arrangement and necessary information for contact tracing purposes. Public masses were put on hold from 7 October and the church has been closed for complete sanitisation on 14 October.
Attendees of the mass on 27 September are urged to seek treatment if they are experiencing any symptoms.
Third-wave has hit us and right now, we should all stay home if possible to help flatten the curve. We have done it once and we can do it again!
