Pink wrist tag was from theme park, say Ipoh cops

IPOH: A viral photo of a woman wearing a pink wrist tag at an eatery in Fair Park here has caused a misunderstanding, says Asst Comm A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz.

The Ipoh OCPD said the police checked the incident of the woman wearing a tag resembling the pink Covid-19 persons under surveillance (PUS) wrist tag.

“She is not wearing a PUS tag as suggested in the picture. It was a tag from a theme park in Tambun.”

The picture went viral on several social media platforms on Tuesday.

State health department director Dr Ding Lay Ming confirmed that a police report was lodged.

It was reported earlier last month that a 72-year-old woman was photographed dining at an eatery in Meru Raya.

The woman was later confirmed to be positive with Covid-19.

On Aug 4, a couple in George Town were seen wearing pink tags resembling the PUS tag.

Police later identified their wristbands were tags issued by a pet shop for customers.
