Walks around the village turn costly for two men under quarantine in Sabah

KOTA KINABALU: A walk around the village turned costly for two men in Sabah as they were issued compounds for breaking their home quarantine.

The first man, a 36-year-old from Kg Kelabu in Beaufort, was seen walking around with a white quarantine bracelet at about 9pm on Monday (Jan 25).

Policemen responded after receiving information and issued him with a compound before instructing him to return home.

The second is a 51-year-old, who was slapped with a fine after he was seen walking around Kg Rancangan at about 10pm on the same day.

Speaking about this, Beaufort OCPD Deputy Supt Azmir Abd Razak said that the man "was bored and had gone for a walk".

He said the actions of these two put the health and lives of others at risk.

“Please abide by all standard operating procedures during this pandemic and stay home if you are under quarantine, ” DSP Azmir said.
