A new cluster of Covid-19 cases has been detected in Sendayan, Negri Sembilan. As such, 8000 residences living in the area have been ordered to undergo screening as soon as possible.

This came after Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah confirmed that 39 positive cases had been detected in Sendayan involving 13 tahfiz students, a group of 15 individuals and 11 people from a family.

We found that there is an outbreak in Sendayan. And a concerted effort has been taken, and is ongoing, at the scene. We hope that we will be able to contain the infection,” Dr Hisham was quoted as saying.

The sudden spike of new cases brings the total of 42 cases in Negeri Sembilan alone. Besides the tahfiz students and large family of 11, the other 15 who had contracted the coronavirus disease were board members of an organisation. No names were revealed.

The area has now been classified as a Covid-19 red zone.
