KOTA BARU: At least six mosques here have been ordered to close following a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases in the state.

Kelantan Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIK) president Tengku Tan Sri Mohamad Rizam Tengku Abdul Aziz said the directive, issued by the council and effective yesterday, also applies to several surau in the district.

He said the move, taken as a measure to contain the spread of Covid-19, has received the consent of Kelantan's Sultan Muhammad V, who is the state's head of religion.

The mosques ordered to be closed include Masjid Raja Perempuan Zainab 2 near the State Palace, Masjid Makmuriyah, Masrasah Ehsan and Surau Kubur Tok Kenali.

"Beginning yesterday, all prayers and other activities are banned at these mosques and surau, especially mosques located near the State Palace.

"The directive will remain in place until a new date is announced," he said in a statement.

It is understood that the directive was issued following the discovery of the new Hilir cluster which was reported in four districts in Kelantan, namely Kota Baru, Bachok, Tumpat and Pasir Putih.

As of yesterday, 975 people linked to the cluster have undergone screening, from which 21 people tested positive for Covid-19. - NST
