56 Covid-19 cases detected in Parliament, says Noor Hisham

 

The health ministry has suggested that the number of people in Parliament be reduced and the duration of the sittings shortened.

PETALING JAYA: A total of 56 Covid-19 cases were detected in Parliament as of yesterday, according to health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

In a statement today, Noor Hisham said the cases involved two MPs, six escort officers and 48 officials from various government agencies.

Of these 56 cases, 39 (69.6%) comprised those who have not been fully vaccinated or had not received vaccinations at all. These cases brought the positivity rate to 2.7%.

He said according to investigations and risk assessments, the positive cases do not have links to one another.

Investigations were also being conducted to detect close contacts of these cases, with four close contacts detected so far.

He said the individuals who tested positive as well as close contacts were not allowed to join the sitting and had been isolated under the home surveillance order (HSO) since the first day of the sitting.

Taking into account the current Covid-19 situation, the health ministry suggested that the number of people in Parliament be reduced and the duration of the sittings shortened.

This recommendation was to minimise the risk of Covid-19 infections.

He added that the matter was proposed during the coordination meeting on July 26 to discuss matters related to the special sitting. - FMT
