Police to increase checks, monitoring of public areas as Covid-19 cases rise, says IGP


KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The police will step up checks and closely monitor compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) in public areas following a rise in COVID-19 cases, says Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) said the police found that some Malaysians were complacent and not bothered about adhering to the SOPs to curb the spread of Covid-19.

He said that stern action will be taken against individuals found flouting the guidelines.

"Taking into consideration the rise in Covid-19 cases, the police would like to remind Malaysians to always be self-disciplined and to follow the set SOPs.

"In conjunction with the year-end holidays and festivities, many have taken the opportunity to visit their hometowns, travel and host social events and gatherings, ” he said Monday (Dec 28).

Abdul Hamid said it was undeniable that such activities would create a situation where crowds will gather in large numbers.

He reminded Malaysians to practise the new norms and to avoid the 3C’s (crowds, confined spaces and close conversations) in their daily activities to curb the spread of the virus.

"Let’s work together to break the chain and flatten the curve of Covid-19 infections in Malaysia, ” he said. - Bernama
