As much as Malaysians love to party, staying safe and Covid-19-free seems like a pretty good reason to stay in for now.
A whopping 328 individuals were arrested yesterday (19th July), for attending pubs and nightclubs, a restriction that has yet to be lifted under the RMCO. Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, said a total of 383 people were caught by a joint special task force for taking part in prohibited activities.
“Of the total 383 individuals arrested for violating the MCO, 328 of them were detained for going to nightclubs and pubs. 32 have been remanded, while 351 were issued compounds (of RM1,000 each),” said the minister in a statement recorded by the Sun Daily. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first instance of people violating MCO rules to go clubbing. Previously, 96 individuals were detained by authorities when they were discovered violating SOPs at pubs and nightclubs.
The RMCO task force that was set up by the police conducted 61,907 inspections nationwide on Sunday.
Ismail Sabri added that, in total, 2,809 enforcement teams involving 11,996 personnel were deployed to conduct checks on 3,681 supermarkets, 5,535 restaurants, 1,882 hawkers, 2,086 factories, 3,458 banks and 754 government offices.
“Checks were also done on 1,166 land transportation terminals, 214 water transport terminals, and 96 air transport terminals,” said the minister.
Party animals and club-goers can resume their eventful night lives once the virus no longer poses a threat to society. But until then, there’s no harm in following the SOPs to prevent another outbreak from happening.
