Tuanku Syed Putra Faizuddin, who is also Perlis Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs) president, said everyone should act rationally and must refer to reliable sources for information, namely, the National Security Council and the Health Ministry.
“When there is too much fake news going around, it will be an additional burden on the government to calm the situation and will also disrupt efforts to conduct screenings on those involved.
“It is more appropriate if the public extends their cooperation to frontline workers and help residents who may be affected to follow the implementation of the targeted enhanced MCO,” he said yesterday.
Earlier, the Perlis Raja Muda attended the Hijrah Minda programme at the Al-Abrar Kubang Gajah Mosque in Arau, where MAIPs, in collaboration with the State Social Welfare Department, distributed 300 food aid packs to residents affected by the targeted enhanced MCO implementation at Kampung Tanah Timbul and Kampung Kuala Sanglang.
The Perlis government implemented the targeted enhanced MCO for 28 days starting at 10pm on Saturday in Kampung Kuala Sanglang and Kampung Tanah Timbul.
As at Sunday, Perlis recorded 30 positive Covid-19 cases with 11 being cases from the Sivagangga PUI Cluster which started in Napoh, Kubang Pasu, Kedah. — Bernama
