KUCHING: The people of Subis have been urged to help reduce the spread of Covid-19 cases in the district by adhering strictly to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) of the movement control order (MCO).

Samalaju assemblyman Majang Renggi said, “If we do not comply with the SOPs, then this trend will continue.”  

He noted that Covid-19 cases were being recorded in the district each day.

Majang said this after attending a dry run at the Saremas industrial vaccination centre (PPVIN) in Suai on Saturday (July 10).

Meanwhile, Saremas assistant manager Asrif Mahmud thanked the state authorities for approving the establishment of the PPVIN.

He said the centre was set up to administer Covid-19 vaccines to workers in the plantation sector as well as the residents in Suai.

“We are grateful to the Sarawak government for expediting the vaccination process for the locals,” he said.

The Saremas PPVIN began operating Sunday (July 11) with the inoculation of 2,252 people.

These included local workers, foreign workers and their family members, teachers and contractors.
