JOHOR BAHRU, March 23 (Bernama) -- There are 75 people from Johor who attended the recent tabligh assembly in the Sri Petaling Mosque who have yet to come forward for health screenings.
Johor Police Chief Datuk Ayob Khan Maydin Pitchay said this included 29 people from Bangladesh, 10 Rohingya and eight from Thailand.
He said they were part of the 1,450 members of the tabligh group from Johor who attended the recent assembly.
“Of this number, 1,375 have been tracked down and have undergone health screenings, with 1,346 found to be negative while 29 were positive, one have died and one in critical condition,” he said in a press conference after visiting the OP COVID-19 site at Jalan Tampoi Lama here today.
He said police are urging individuals who have yet to come forward for health screenings to go to the nearest clinics and hospitals as soon as possible.
“I want to stress that we will look for them wherever they are. So it is better that they come forward themselves for the health screenings,” he said.
