MELAKA: Melaka hotels will work together to brace for the impact of the novel coronavirus and the state's water rationing exercise.

Malaysia Association of Hotels (MAH) Melaka Chapter honorary

secretary Jason Bak said the hotels here had agreed to assist each other in terms of ensuring high hygiene levels as well as sanitising their rooms against contagious viruses.

"We want to see Melaka free from the novel coronavirus or any other outbreaks to continue its position as a top tourist destination," he said at MAH's annual general meeting in a hotel here Monday (Feb 10).

Star Media Group (SMG) chief executive officer Andreas Vogiatzakis and SMG director Loh Can Chee were also invited as guests at the AGM.

Bak said to cope with the water rationing from Monday, hoteliers had decided to share water tankers.

"We will rent the tankers and complement each other," he said.

Melaka announced its second water rationing exercise involving industrial, tourism and health facilities on Monday.

The first rationing exercise affecting domestic users started on Jan 29 and will continue for an indefinite period.
