COVID-19: KING CALLS FOR SHORTER FRIDAY - 2

THIVYAMALINI RAMALU

Ahmad Fadil said Al-Sultan Abdullah also called on those who participated in the tabligh gathering at the Sri Petaling Mosque recently to give their cooperation to the Ministry of Health (MOH) by coming to the nearest District Health Office to minimise COVID-19 infections in their communities.

“His Majesty urged all Malaysians to postpone any mass gathering as advised by the MOH and those symptomatic of COVID-19 not to attend any programme involving many people in crowded settings.

“Members of the public are also advised to contact the Online Health Advisory Service or the National Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) through the MOE’s website to find answers to their doubts and questions so as to prevent the dissemination of wrong information which may cause panic,” he said.

Ahmad Fadil said Al-Sultan Abdullah also advised the people to adhere to personal hygiene guidelines and preventive measures issued by the MOH.

“Al-Sultan Abdullah also expressed his appreciation and gratitude for the prompt action, treatment and continuous monitoring by the MOH and related agencies in ensuring that COVID-19 prevention measures and appropriate controls were effectively implemented,” he added.
