Seventy-nine new Covid-19 cases have been recorded in three apartment buildings that have been locked down in the Masjid India area in Kuala Lumpur, said Federal Territories Minister Annuar Musa today.
He said 49 cases were detected in Selangor Mansion and Malayan Mansion, while 30 were in the nearby Menara City One.
He said this makes the entire area a red zone, and that the authorities are paying close attention to the increase in cases.
“After recent records after more screening and testing done on the residents here, there are a number of new cases that have been identified and this is something that we should be concerned about now.
“At Selangor Mansion and Malayan Mansion, there are already 49 cases, while in the Menara City One, there are 30 cases.
“This brings the total cases to 79 in one small locality. This is something that the authorities are paying attention to,” he said today in a press conference broadcast live on Facebook. – TMI
