Sarawak allows Raya family gatherings on the first day


Close family members can get together for a Hari Raya celebration, the Sarawak government said.

KUCHING: Families in Sarawak can celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri on the first day in the presence of close family members, the state disaster management committee said today.

The committee said the decision was made after evaluating the current Covid-19 situation in the state, and had been agreed to by the Sarawak Islamic Council.

It said a detailed amendment to the hygiene and safety protocols could be obtained from the Islamic council website at http://www.mis.sarawak.gov.my.

There were 649 new Covid-19 cases reported today, taking the total infections in the state to 35,809, with two new fatalities bringing the death toll to 209.

The state health department also declared two new community clusters, namely, the Ulu Anap cluster in Tatau and the Emperan cluster in Selangau.

The Ulu Anap cluster involves a longhouse in Ulu Sungai Anap in the Tatau district which began with a local 38-year-old woman who was detected at a screening at Nanga Tau health clinic on April 29. She was confirmed positive on May 1.

The Emperan cluster involved three longhouses in the Selangau district, with its index case involving a local 27-year-old woman who was also detected via symptomatic screening.

To date, 78 clusters are still active in the state, with 17 of those clusters recording 150 additional new cases while 61 other clusters did not record any increase. - FMT
