As of yesterday (March 8th), the total number of Covid-19 cases reached a staggering number of 99 cases with 10 new patients being admitted.
Malaysian Hong Leong Islamic Insurance Headquarters (Takaful Hong Leong) confirmed today that one of their employees have been infected with the virus last Friday (March 6th). In their official statement, it was reported that the patient’s home quarantine began on the 2nd of March 2020 and has currently been admitted to a government hospital for further treatment.
They added that the employee was working in PJ City Development Building B and whichever employees had close contact with the patient have also been home quarantined since the 2nd of March 2020. The company assured that further investigations will be conducted in accordance with the Ministry of Health guidelines.
“We also followed the guidelines of the Ministry of Health to disinfect and clean all offices in Building B on March 7th and 8th and even applied disinfection measures to all public areas, including suburbs, canteens, parking lots, toilets and elevators.”
The next step for the company is to take temperature measurements in the lobby, arrange for isolated elevators and even preventing access to the floor.
With 99 confirmed cases and 24 patients discharged, we hope that this will be over soon. Kudos to the company for their quick action and we hope their employees practice safe hygiene and also follow their home quarantine rules to a tee.
Stay tuned for more updates. Stay safe, guys!
