The Ministry of Health has recently announced that a new Covid-19 cluster has been detected in Labu Lanjut in Sepang, Selangor. Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said five positive cases have been detected in the cluster so far.

The first case was detected in a patient that was initially treated for Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) at Serdang hospital before being tested positive for the virus. He elaborated, as reported by Malay Mail,

“Active Case Detection (ACD) activities found that the patient’s two children and two grandchildren had also tested positive. Three of them stay at the same house while the other lives elsewhere.” 

29 close contacts of the family have been screened and 25 of them were tested negative. The cause of the infection is still under investigation but the ministry suspects that it was caused by the Hari Raya visitation.

Although we are given a bit of freedom to move around, please ensure you practice and follow the SOPs to lower the risk of transmission of Covid-19. We need to work together on this. We are now the front-liners.
