19 May 2020 (Readers 102)

With Aidilfitri to be celebrated in five days, members of the public with relatives or friends who are former COVID-19 patients should wait for 14 days after their discharge from hospital to visit them.

This followed advice by Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah that individuals who recovered and are discharged from hospitals after testing negative for COVID-19 should quarantine themselves for 14 days.

Dr. Noor Hisham advised the public to continue to comply with the Health Ministry of Malaysias standard operating procedures (SOP) to maintain the double-digit in daily COVID-19 cases which the country has managed to achieve with the implementation of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) since May 4.

The Muslim community in Malaysia is also advised to celebrate Aidilfitri out of the norm this time by avoiding visits to the cemetery and peoples homes to break the chain of the COVID-19 infection.
