“Throughout the period, our enforcement teams have inspected a total of 162,890 individuals and one person was arrested for the SOP violation.

“Apart from that, a total of 134,639 vehicles were also inspected at mounted roadblocks throughout Kuching.

“From the figure, 388 vehicles were asked to turn back after failing to provide any valid reasons for their travel,” he said.

The public are urged to comply with the SOPs and play their role by practising the new normal, in order to break the Covid-19 transmission chain.
