Dr Othman informed that the cluster involved local workers and also close contacts of family members. He also added that the initial investigation carried out by the Kedah JKN found that the transmission of the suspected infections was from the community, which then spread in the workplace.

All close contacts have also been identified, have undergone Covid-19 screening tests and have been instructed to conduct a Home Surveillance Order (HSO) for 10 days.
