Following an alarming increase of Covid-19 cases in Genting Highlands, several areas in the vicinity have been placed under lockdown.
According to Rojaklah, 31 new confirmed cases were reported yesterday (Tuesday, 8th December). As such, the police have placed wire barricades to prevent people from leaving the place.
Among them is Amber Court, which is known to house a majority of foreign labour workers. Since police personnel are now stationed at the entrance and exit areas, residents won’t be allowed to come and go as they please without a valid reason.
In addition, the other two apartments affected include Ria Apartment as well as Kayangan Apartment. The Ministry of Health (MoH) have instructed all residents living there to undergo Covid-19 swab tests within this week. In the meantime, the residents have to self-isolate themselves for at least two (2) weeks.
