YEAP BOO YAM

Dr Adham said no Indonesians were among the 900 cases registered in Malaysia.

Asked about 83 Malaysians said to have gone to Sulawesi, Indonesia for a tabligh assembly, Dr Adham said all of them would be required to undergo health screening and a 14-day quarantine on their return.

According to the latest media reports, the Ijtima of Asia 2020 event, scheduled to be held in Gowa, South Sulawesi, had been cancelled over COVID-19 fears.

CNN Indonesia said the event had been cancelled after the Indonesian government with the cooperation of the police and army had banned mass gatherings, including religious activities.

Asked about Malaysians who had to stay in Singapore during the MCO period, he said they would also be required to undergo a 14-day quarantine if they showed symptoms of the infection on their return.

“We will also provide mobile thermal scanners at the Johor-Singapore entry points to do screening,” he said.

Asked on the possibility of the homeless contracting the disease, he said the National Security Council had decided that the Women and Family Ministry would be responsible for their welfare.
