MP's office closed due to Klang cluster


COVID-19 | Klang MP Charles Santiago said his office would be closed beginning today as a staff member might have come in contact with a Covid-19 cluster.

"My service centre will be closed beginning Sept 29 (today) until further notice.

"One of our staff might be affected by the new cluster in Klang.

"All staff members will undergo Covid-19 test tomorrow morning. Will keep you in the loop," he said in a Twitter post.

Yesterday, the Health Ministry announced a new Covid-19 cluster in Klang.

The Jalan Apas cluster, which has eight cases as of yesterday, originated from a couple (Case 10,782 and Case 10,783) who had visited Sabah.

They visited Tawau and Semporna from Sept 13 to 16 and began to show symptoms of fever, coughing and flu on Sept 18. They sought treatment at a medical centre on Sept 19.

They were referred to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah, Klang on Sept 24 and were confirmed positive on Sept 26. Subsequently, they were transferred to the Sungai Buloh Hospital.

Following the discovery, contact-tracing was initiated on Sept 27, which found another six people to be positive with Covid-19.

The six include two secondary school students who are siblings of one of the index cases.

The two are students of SMK Pandamaran Jaya in Port Klang.

Both their classrooms have been sanitised, and the schooling session is proceeding as normal, according to the Selangor Education Department. - Mkini
