It seems like a Covid-19 super spreader has been identified and things aren’t looking good for those residing in Kedah.
A Covid-19 patient recently violated his home quarantine when he dined in a nasi kandar restaurant at Pekan Napoh, Jitra, after returning from India. Both him and the restaurant owner were tested positive for the deadly disease.
Many people are now pissed off at the irresponsible individuals for forming the Sivagangga cluster. The covidiot has reportedly infected up to 21 people so far (with the youngest being a 2-year-old).
To make things worst, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has now discovered that the restaurant owner did not bother to follow the government’s SOPs. Since the owner did not use a MySejahtera QR code or record customers’ details manually, the Ministry is now tasked with the tough job of performing contact tracing.
The owner isn’t the only covidiot. One of his customers was tested positive for Covid-19 after he went out to celebrate Hari Raya Aidiladha. “He did an antibody rapid test at a private clinic on 27th July and the results returned negative at that time,” said Dr Noor Hisham.
He added, “However, on 31st July, he came down with a fever and cough but he did not inform the district health office or the health clinic for treatment. Only a day after being involved in Hari Raya Aidiladha activities did he notify that he is a close contact to the index case.” The patient is currently receiving treatment at the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital.
UPDATE 8/3 – One more customer @ nasi kandar joint has tested positive.
He got private testing (RTK Antigen) on 27/7 – negative. On Raya Haji (31/7), he developed a fever and cough. He tested positive (RT PCR) on 1/8, day after attending Raya activities.https://t.co/1zERQkVEak pic.twitter.com/mqetjmcTiu
