Don’t take things lightly, virus still active

Date:

KUCHING: Sarawakians have been reminded not to take things lightly and take all the necessary precautions as the state moves into the Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) beginning today (July 14).

Bandar Kuching MP Dr Kelvin Yii said this is because the virus is still in the community and everyone needs to play their part to curb the spread of Covid-19.

“On July 13, Sarawak reported 472 Covid-19 cases and what is even more concerning is that the test positivity rate was 11.3 percent, which is two times higher than the World Health Organisation recommended standard of less than five percent positivity percentage.

“It shows that we are not testing enough. If we test more, we will probably find more cases in our community.

“On top of that, there are another 16 cases of the Delta variant which have been detected in Kuching as of July 4,” he said in a video message posted on his Facebook page today (July 13).

Yii added that should dine-in be allowed, it is recommended that people continue to takeaway their food.

“Continue to tapoa (takeaway), adhere to the standard operating procedures, because we do not want to see so many people crowding at the coffee shop and risk another spreading of the virus.

“The virus is still in the community, take all necessary precautions, let’s play our part so that our beloved Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia is properly taken care of,” said Yii.
