According to a representative from the Petaling District Health Office, Dr Abdullah Shafie, a total of 760 residents in Block B of the condominium have gone through swab tests.
“We started screening since 6.30 this morning involving those who have symptoms,” he told Sinar Harian, adding that the screening process will be completed in Block B first before proceeding to Blocks C, D, E and F.
Meanwhile, Petaling District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the police will assist in launching the screening process.
“I have allocated members as early as 5am this morning and we stopped for a break at 11.30am. At 5pm we continued screening the residents who returned from work,” he said.
As a precaution, Ezanee added that the police will ensure that the residents there comply with the standard operating procedures including physical distancing.
