The terrace houses affected by the targeted MCO are those located at Jalan Emas 31 and Jalan Emas 32 in the housing estate.

"Tests were also conducted on students from 10 schools and two kindergartens located near the Bah Manggis cluster," he added.
From the tests conducted, two students were found to be Covid-19 positive, he added.
According to Mohd Jusni, door-to-door visits would also be conducted to weed out those who have yet to be tested for Covid-19.
