Close to 130,000 inspections during MCO

JOHOR BARU: Local authorities (PBT) in Johor have conducted 128,705 inspections on business premises and industries from March 21 until May 3 to ensure they follow the regulations under the movement control order (MCO).

Johor housing and local government committee chairman Ayub Jamil said a total of 1,681 frontliners from all 16 PBT were involved in the check-up.

“The inspection involved premises including entertainment centres, public markets, factories, construction sites, and all economic sectors that are allowed to operate during the MCO.

“Following the inspection, we issued 8,033 verbal warnings, 6,892 written warnings, 158 compounds, and carried out 230 seizures during the same period,” he said in a statement.

He added that the operations were carried out jointly with the National Security Council (MKN), the International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti), the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry (KPDNHEP) and other agencies such as the State Health Department, district offices and police.

On the conditional MCO, Ayub said sectors allowed to open should follow the procedure provided for by MKN involving social distancing, using hand sanitisers and face masks, carrying out sanitation activities and body temperature checks.

Those who do not comply with the procedures will be shut down immediately, he added. — By REMAR NORDIN
