Community leaders must ensure SOP compliance

Date:

KUCHING: The onus is on local community leaders in Kota Samarahan to ensure compliance with Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs), says Rubiah Wang.

The Kota Samarahan MP on Tuesday (July 27) said residents must adhere to the guidelines set by the Ministry of Health and other authorities.

Commenting on Kampung Tanjung Tuang, which has been placed under enhanced movement control order (EMCO) effective Tuesday, Rubiah said she had been in regular contact with the Samarahan Divisional Disaster Management Committee.

“This is to obtain the latest information on the development of the Covid-19 outbreak in my area and I have also been informed that another village in my area will undergo the EMCO starting midnight – Kampung Jawa Semenggok, Batu 12, Kuching.

“I have also advised community leaders to carry out their roles more proactively.

“This is by monitoring the pandemic situation in their respective areas and ensuring that residents in their areas comply with SOPs.”

In a separate development, Rubiah donated equipment, including canopies and photocopiers, to staff at the Covid-19 Quarantine and Treatment Centre (PKRC) at the Rafflesia College, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak.

The PKRC is currently using the varsity’s residential blocks to accommodate the increasing number of Covid-19 patients.

The facility can accommodate up to 500 patients at a time and the moment, there are over 300 undergoing treatment.
