KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 80 personnel of Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department carried out public sanitisation operations around the city to contain the spread of Covid-19.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Mahadi Che Ngah said the focus areas were around Dataran Merdeka, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Bukit Nanas, Jalan Petaling and Central Market.
“The main purpose is to ensure these locations are clean as they are public hotspots.
“We chose to carry out the operations on weekends because the roads were less busy and the operations could run smoothly, ” he told reporters after monitoring the operations here yesterday.
Mahadi said such operations would be implemented from time to time to ensure the city’s cleanliness, and thus help reduce risks of infection in the city.
“If possible, we want Kuala Lumpur to be free from Covid-19 and the sanitisation operations are also part of the new norms that require cooperation from all quarters, ” he said, while urging the public to cooperate by adhering to the standard operating procedure stipulated by the government to help curb Covid-19 transmissions. — Bernama
