Dzulkefly to lead Selangor’s special task force

PETALING JAYA: The Selangor state government has appointed former health minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad to head the state’s Covid-19 task force council.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said the special task force met yesterday morning.

“During the meeting, we agreed on the formation of the task force to observe and contain the virus. Dr Dzulkefly, the former health minister, has been appointed to lead the task force,” he said in a press statement.

Amiruddin said the task force would be working with the Smart Selangor Command Centre to track down the coronavirus through the Geographic Information Systems, and information would be shared with the relevant authorities for the next course of action.

He also noted that about 60% of the Covid-19 cases in the country were Selangorians.

“The public does not need to worry as the situation is under control. The preventive measures as outlined by the Health Ministry should be followed to prevent infection,” he said.

As of March 9, there are 117 positive cases reported in Malaysia, with 24 recovered cases.

An update on the cases is expected to be provided by the Health Ministry later today.
