> Several villagers in Kampung Tanah Timbul in Sanglang, Perlis, had allegedly left their homes before the authorities imposed the targeted enhanced movement control order (MCO) in their neighbourhood, reported Utusan Malaysia.
Kampung Tanah Timbul villager Md Zuki Hamid, 45, said some residents left the high-risk area since Saturday to escape the lockdown.
“I hope those who have left will return to the village for (Covid-19) screening process. Their actions will only put others at risk,” Md Zuki was quoted as saying.
Perlis Health Department director Dr Sirajuddin Hashim said they had yet to receive information on possible “escapees”, as the screening process was still ongoing.
The authorities had imposed the targeted enhanced MCO in Kampung Kuala Sanglang and Kampung Tanah Timbul for 28 days until Sept 4 to contain the spread of Covid-19 linked to the superspreader Sivagangga cluster.
