PUTRAJAYA: Putrajaya Corporation (PjC) is taking extra measures to keep the public updated on news of the novel coronavirus situation in its locality.

PjC president Datuk Dr Aminuddin Hassim said one of Putrajaya's advantage is that there are 23 ministries located here.

"The situation here is under control.

"As a local authority, we will share the latest updates relating to the virus to the public either through our official websites or social media.

"If there are any cases reported, we will get guidance from the Health Ministry.

"We have two hospitals in Putrajaya, including Hospital Putrajaya, that is equipped with sophisticated medical equipment," he said during a prize-giving ceremony for the Putrajaya Community Wall Climbing competition at Extreme Sports Complex at Taman Cabaran here on Sunday (Feb 9).

Noting that some places in Putrajaya are tourist attractions, Aminuddin added that hand sanitisers were made available at strategic locations.

"We were also told that tourists who visit here by buses were given a briefing about the situation and precautions to take," he said.
