Effective Covid-19 testing, treatment sought

The PKRC established in Samalaju Industrial Park.

KUCHING: The Bintulu parliamentary service centre will assist the medical staff at Samalaju Industrial Park Covid-19 Quarantine and Low-Risk Treatment Centre (PKRC), said Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.

He said this included coordination with other relevant departments to ensure smooth running of the quarantine and treatment centre.

“After talking to the medical staff deployed at the PKRC, we will continue to help them coordinate with the other relevant departments.

“This is so that the testing and treatment can be done as effectively as possible and adjusted accordingly based on our observations in the next few days,” he said in a Facebook post on Saturday.

Tiong said with the centre now operational, he had ensured that it would be equipped with all the necessary equipment, hardware and software, meeting the specifications needed.

“We also took the opportunity to look at what is still missing or needs to be improved by the relevant departments,” he said.

Last week, the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy to China visited the PKRC in Samalaju Industrial Park which housed workers found to contract Covid-19.

“I urge all companies and industrial sectors in the Samalaju Industrial area to cooperate by providing accurate information related to their employees.

“This is to enable the Ministry of Health (MOH) to implement steps to reduce the spread of positive Covid-19 cases among employees,” he stressed.

He added, with Covid-19 under control, it will ensure the smooth running of the Bintulu Division Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, especially the administration of vaccines among industrial workers.

At the same time, he also urged the public to adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) outlined by the government.
