PETALING JAYA: The Social Security Organisation (Socso) will soon release a list of clinics and hospitals that provide mass Covid-19 screening for workers in the third phase of the movement control order (MCO).

In a statement, Socso said all information regarding the programme will only be announced through its official channels, including its official website and social media platforms.

"Therefore, the public has been urged not to believe in any other offers published in other social media sites," it said in a statement on its Facebook page.

On Thursday (April 16), the government announced that it will approve businesses of certain economic sectors during the third phase of MCO, provided that all employees returning to work underwent health screenings first.

International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali said Socso had agreed to bear the Covid-19 screening fee for all employees required to do the check-up.

The MCO came into force on March 18 and has been extended until April 28.

Socso also said that it was still in the process to provide standard operating procedures (SOP) and guidelines for the screening process.

"The announcement will also be made soon," added Socso.
