Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) organised health checks and Covid-19 screening for 98 of its officers.
The screening was carried out on enforcement officers as well as officers from its fast action team (Pantas), as they were the council’s frontliners.
The free screening, part of a second phase by MBSJ, was conducted in collaboration with I-Medik, Yayasan Ikhlas and Pertubuhan Bangun Bersama.
The first phase took place from May 12 to 15 last year.
For this screening process, an innovative tool called Combat Flex was employed, where portable and lightweight partitions were put up to minimise contact between patient and healthcare worker.
This innovation not only protects healthcare workers but also allows for the swabbing process to be carried out uninterrupted.
The entire process takes 10 minutes and healthcare workers do not need to wear personal protective equipment to obtain swab samples.
The council held the screening to show its appreciation to frontliners, who remained committed to carrying out their duties during the Covid-19 pandemic and throughout the movement control order.
