As Covid-19 spreads worldwide, Penang gets its first positive case.
According to The Star, the man who contracted the virus, an engineer from Bayan Lepas working for Motorola, tested positive after he came into contact with a Covid-19 patient in Kuala Lumpur recently.
“We are working closely with the Health Ministry and are following their guidance to minimise the risk of further exposure. As a safety precaution, our employees and associates will work from home for the next two weeks,” a spokesman for Motorola noted.
Since then, primary schools and kindergartens have advised parents working in the company to not bring their children to school as a precautionary measure. Factory workers in the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone have also restricted their outdoor movements.
One production operator, Ben, said that he and his friend ordered lunch from a delivery company and would keep doing that, as a means to avoid crowded places. Penangites have also been told to remain calm as State Health Director, Dr Asmayani Khalib also reminded the public to always wash their hands with water and soap, and to constantly use hand sanitisers.
“If you experience symptoms like fever, cough or breathing difficulties, you must quickly go to the nearest clinic or hospital to get treatment. The public must also try to avoid visiting crowded places,” she said.
