ALOR SETAR: Fifty-two National Service (NS) trainees from the Dusun Minda Resort in Kuala Nerang have been quarantined for the past two days due to fever.
NS Department director Datuk Abdul Hadi Awang Kechil said they were quarantined following the advice of a medical officer from the Kuala Nerang Health Centre.
“They are suffering from regular fever but have been quarantined due to the large number involved. They have been separated from the other trainees at the camp and excluded from taking part in normal activities,” he said when contacted yesterday.
Abdul Hadi said the affected trainees would be isolated until all of them recovered.
It is understood that the camp, located about 30km from here, has more than 320 trainees.
Abdul Hadi said all the trainees were given regular health check-ups from time to time by medical officers from the Kuala Nerang Health Centre.
There are seven health staff on duty at the camp.
He assured parents that the well-being of their children at the camp was always a priority.
