Seven staff at the vaccination centre (PPV) in the Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC) have tested positive for Covid-19, with 11 close contacts identified.

The Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) confirmed in a statement that the cases were detected on 11 July and immediate action was taken by reporting the situation to the Ministry of Health (KKM).

The 11 close contacts were also asked to get tested and instructed to undergo self-isolation while awaiting the results. All of them were found to have tested negative for Covid-19.

Meanwhile, CITF said that they would not prevent any other staff from the SCCC to get tested.

Areas involved in the incident were also immediately sanitised by the SCCC management.

CITF said the PPV at the SCCC has been opened since 7 June. As of 17 July, a total of 230,000 people have been vaccinated at the SCCC which all went smoothly.

“For everyone’s information, the CITF has adopted standard operating procedures (SOP) in all PPVs from the beginning, including the SCCC PPV,” CITF said in the statement.

“Among the SOPs is that the SCCC PPV management must ensure that the instructions and rules in the Covid-19 Risk Control Programme are complied with, such as physical distancing and monitoring the staff and volunteers involved on an ongoing basis if there are symptoms.”

“SCCC PPV staff also underwent body temperature measurements before starting work on a daily basis, were required to wear masks and were encouraged to wear face shields while on duty.”

As for allegations that Covid-19 patients were present at the SCCC, the CITF said that the vaccine recipients who are in the category of  Covid-19 patients and have passed the quarantine period were allowed to get vaccinated with proof of their ‘Home Release Order’ issued by the District Health Centre.

“CITF will continue to ensure that all PPVs comply with the guidelines provided as well as carry out proper SOP practices to ensure that there is no risk of infection in any PPV, especially at a time when the virus is now spreading within the community.”
