No soldier along border affected by Covid-19

Date:

SERIKIN (BAU): The welfare and safety of Malaysian soldiers on duty along the Sarawak-Kalimantan border is always a priority and to date none of them has contracted Covid-19.

First Infantry Division Commander Major General Datuk Md Din Abu said that from the beginning of their operation to date, there had been no confirmed Covid-19 positive cases among the soldiers.

“So far the only positive ones were from outside and not those on duty, as some of the wives were employees of the Ministry of Health.

“We expect every member to continue to take care of their health first so that they can do their jobs better,” he said after ‘Sumbangsih Hari Raya Aidilfitri’ programme and Hari Raya preparations of the 4th Regiment of the Royal Armoured Corps at Serikin, yesterday.

He said whenever the soldiers returned from their duties, they were required to undergo self-screening and to take a full bath, after which they were allowed to return home in a clean state.
