MIRI: The Miri Divisional Disaster Management Committee (DDMC), led by Datuk Lee Kim Shin, paid a visit to the Covid-19 One-Stop Centre set up at the Miri Indoor Stadium today.

The visit was to see what changes could be made as well as to assess the health of those who came for swab tests.

“This One-Stop Centre is for three types of swab test: those who have made an appointment with Miri Divisional Health Office, those who had close contact with positive cases, and those who need a surveillance swab.

“Meanwhile, the second category is walk-in, which is for individuals who have been exposed to positive cases as reported in the daily Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) updates and individuals who want to get a swab test, and the third is for anyone who wants swab test results as they need to travel to Limbang or Bintulu,” Lee explained.

The One-Stop Centre will perform 600 RT-PCR tests per day, in addition to issuing quarantine orders, quarantine release orders, and wristband attachment and detachment.

Lee, who is also Sarawak Transport Minister, also took the opportunity to talk to some of the people there.

“Many came today to take the swab test with family members, and some even came in wheelchairs.

“To ensure compliance with SOPs, the public are reminded to stick to appointment provided by the Miri Divisional Health Office to avoid congestion.”

Meanwhile, Lee requested that wheelchair ramps and pedestrian walkways be installed, and uneven road conditions be fixed at the One-Stop Centre’s main entrance.

Also present were acting Miri Resident Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusuf, Miri Division Health officer Dr P Raviwharmman  and Miri Rela officer Afizi Salam.
