KOTA TINGGI: More than 3,000 people have entered Malaysia from Singapore through the Periodic Commuting Arrangement (PCA) and the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) since Aug 17.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said that since the partial reopening of the border with Singapore, some 815 people have travelled into the country via the RGL while another 2,647 through the PCA.

"We have detected one Covid-19 case involving a Malaysian returning from Singapore through the PCA while no case had been detected from those travelling through the RGL.

"As such, those travelling through the PCA would no longer be allowed to be quarantined at home but would instead have to go through quarantine in a hotel," he said.

He said this in a press conference after officiating Sungai Renggit Health Clinic here on Sunday (Sept 6).

The case involving a 35-year-old Malaysian man who had returned back from Singapore on Aug 29 was detected on Sept 2.
