Kelantan health dept confirms madrasah refused Covid-19 screening


The madrasah’s owner reportedly didn’t allow any screening when the health department went to the premises following the death of one of its residents.

KOTA BHARU: The Kelantan health department today confirmed receiving a report on 34 residents of a madrasah in Kampung Sungai Kenerong, Dabong, near Kuala Krai who refused to undergo Covid-19 screening tests recently.

Its director Dr Zaini Hussin said, however, the matter has been resolved with police assistance through a discussion with the principal of the madrasah and all residents have agreed to take the test.

“They refused to undergo the screening because they believe they had no connection with a Covid-19 case who died in Dabong on Aug 27,” he told Bernama via WhatsApp today.

Earlier, the media reported that 34 residents of the madrasah were refusing to take the Covid-19 test, with the owner not allowing any screening to take place when the state health department went to the premises following the death of one of its residents.

To avoid the incident from recurring, Zaini urged the people of Kelantan to cooperate with the authorities especially health department staff in order to curb the spread of the pandemic.

“A majority of Covid-19 cases are asymptomatic. So, a lab test can determine whether a person is infected or not.

“The Kelantan health department requires cooperation from the public in order to carry out a quick and accurate investigation,” he said while urging the people to comply with SOPs to break the pandemic chain. - FMT
