Previously, only people who had to observe self-quarantine were fitted with pink wristbands.

Due to the drastic increase in cases from the Sivagangga cluster, the residents of Kampung Ulu, Padang Sanai in Kedah have been fitted with pink wristbands, reported MKN Kedah. Kampung Ulu is under TEMCO (Targeted Enhancement Movement Control Order).

The residents in this village are not allowed to leave the TEMCO area. Only the head of the family is allowed to leave the house to get food or for emergency purposes. The head of the families can be identified by the addition of a white wristband. Simply said, head of families have two wristbands, one pink and one white.

Earlier this week, five schools in the Kubang Pasu and Padang Terap districts in Kedah have been closed with immediate effect starting from 3 August until 29 August, reported Bernama.

“All these schools will be closed for 28 days, which includes the 14-day quarantine and 14-day surveillance periods,” the state government said.
