PETALING JAYA: Army and police personnel manning movement control order (MCO) roadblocks in Kuala Lumpur will now be armed with thermometers, says Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
The Federal Territories Minister said those found to be having a fever may be detained and taken for health screenings.
Annuar said all roadblocks in Kuala Lumpur will be supplied with a thermometer from Saturday (March 28).
"Those who have a fever may be detained and brought in for further health checks," he tweeted Saturday (March 28).
Malaysia is currently under an MCO from March 18 to April 14 following a rise of Covid-19 cases in the country.
