Sabah awaiting gazettement of its Phase 1 NRP's SOP

 State Covid-19 spokesperson Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun said the delay was due to the Federal government advising Sabah to follow the same SOP as the rest of the nation as set by the National Security Council (NSC) in the face of the lockdown brought about by the pandemic.

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah is waiting for the gazettement of its new standard operating procedures under the state's own Phase 1 of the National Recovery Plan, pending a green light from the Federal government.

State Covid-19 spokesperson Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun said the delay was due to the Federal government advising Sabah to follow the same SOP as the rest of the nation as set by the National Security Council (NSC) in the face of the lockdown brought about by the pandemic.

On June 28, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor had announced Sabah's Phase 1 National Recovery Plan, which among others allowed dine-ins, opening of barbershops and roadside stalls, cycling, fishing from today.

"Sabah has submitted the new state SOP to the Federal government and is still waiting for the gazettement.

"The recommendation of the SOPs was decided unanimously by the Sabah Covid-19 Disaster Management Committee chaired by the state secretary.

"The state secretary will also issue a separate press release about the detailed SOPs," he said in a statement.

Masidi, who is the Sabah Local Government and Housing Minister, said the committee also comprised department heads from the state Health Department, state National Security Council and police.

Today, Sabah recorded 178 daily Covid-19 cases with two deaths in Tawau, one each in Kudat and Kota Belud.

A new cluster Muhibbah in Manggatal is a community infection that has also spread in the city, Tuaran and Penampang, Masidi revealed.

"The index case is a 49-year-old driver of a statutory body in the city who tested positive for Covid-19 on June 20.

"Contact tracing and targeted screening at the locality by the state Health Department team found 40 positive cases.

"Based on initial investigation, the infection is likely spread among the community at the village level." - NST
