PETALING JAYA: Tesco Stores (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd denies that Covid-19 positive cases have been detected in their outlets.

It said that allegations linked to Tesco branches in Tanjung Pinang, Kajang, Setia Alam and Bukit Beruntung were baseless and false.

"We would like to assure our customers that there have not been any reported or confirmed cases of Covid-19 in any of our stores.

"We ask that customers exercise good judgment when receiving such information and when in doubt, to please check against the Health Ministry's website or Facebook page as well as Tesco Malaysia's official website and Facebook page for clarification," it said in a statement on Thursday (March 19).

Tesco said it would continue to work closely with health authorities to undertake all necessary measures to ensure the health and safety of its colleagues and customers at all its stores nationwide.

"These measures include regularly disinfecting our trolleys, check-out counters, delivery trays and all high-traffic areas," it said.
