By:News Desk

KUCHING: Some 100 staff from Trienekens Sarawak Sdn Bhd were vaccinated at the Batu Kawa Health Clinic vaccination centre (PPV) here, Thursday (June 17).

This following 17 of its staff testing positive for Covid-19 recently.

“After the first reported case on June 1, several more positive cases were reported causing the disruption of waste collection service throughout Kuching,” Trienekens said on its Facebook page.

It added that 60 of its staff—40 percent of the company’s employees—are currently being quarantined.

In addition to that, the Sarawak government made  arrangements to vaccinate Trienekens staff at the Batu Kawa Health Clinic PPV.

Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian, in his Facebook post, visited the PPV to witness the vaccination progress.

“With the reduced waste collection services for municipal councils throughout Kuching, this poses another type of public health risk to the community,” he stated on Facebook, Friday (June 18).

“However, Trienekens have been practicing all the standard operating procedures (SOP) issued by the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).

“They even give each staff vitamin tablets every day. There were also no restrictions on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and trucks are sanitised daily.”

At the same time, he expressed his gratitude to volunteers, health workers and doctors who  helped to vaccinate Trienekens staff.
