At least 17 people who tested positive for Covid-19 in Menara City One condominium tower were linked to the Sri Petaling Mosque tabligh cluster, Health Ministry Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah confirmed today.
In his daily Covid-19 update press conference, Dr Noor Hisham said the index case has affected 12 family members living in the condominium, hence Putrajaya’s call for an enhanced movement control order (EMCO) there announced yesterday.
“The 17 cases reported had links to the tabligh event in Sri Petaling, and the index case has infected 12 family members from three apartments in there.
“The cases were escalating rapidly, so we had to enforce tighter MCO for that area,” he said.
He also confirmed that his medical officers have started screening residents in Menara City One last night.
“We are making sure all apartments are screened, we started last night in stages, not in one go,” he added. – MMO
