Starting tomorrow (8 February 2021), the Malawati indoor stadium will operate as a Covid Assessment Centre (CAC) for the Petaling district, replacing the one at the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) Hall at SS15.
According to Selangor Health director Datuk Dr Sha’ari Ngadiman, the CAC at the stadium would be able to accommodate more patients. “The CAC at MPSJ Hall only has a capacity of 500 patients a day, while the Malawati Stadium can accommodate up to 1,500 patients,” he said.
He also added that the decision was made due to the increasing number of new cases in the Petaling district, according to BERNAMA. As of yesterday (6 February 2021), there are a total of 3847 new Covid-19 cases, with 1482 cases from Selangor state.
Besides this new CAC, Datuk Dr Sha’ari Ngadiman added that there are also CACs operating in eight other districts, namely Klang, Kuala Selangor, Sabak Bernam, Gombak, Hulu Selangor, Hulu Langat, Sepang and Kuala Langat. The CAC at Malawati Stadium would operate from Monday to Saturday and will be closed on Sunday.
At the CAC, Covid-19 patients will be assessed before they are sent to the hospital, Covid-19 Quarantine and Treatment Centre (PKRC) in Serdang or ordered to undergo quarantine at home.
In a survey done by BERNAMA at the Malawati Stadium, the staff of the Petaling District Health Office, Shah Alam City Council and the Civil Defence Department are making preparations to ensure this Covid Assessment Centre can perform smoothly tomorrow.
