Covid-19: Pulapol cases rise with 264 new infections among trainees

KUALA LUMPUR: An additional 264 trainees at the Police Training Centre (Pulapol) here have been infected with Covid-19.

Bukit Aman Management Department director Comm Datuk Ramli Din said this brings the total number of trainees who have tested positive to 382.

"A total of 46 Pulapol personnel have also been infected," he said when contacted on Tuesday (Feb 2).

Comm Ramli said they were working closely with the Health Ministry to send those infected to MAEPS Serdang for treatment and quarantine.

"Some were already sent there last week while the rest are being processed," he said.

Comm Ramli said movements at Pulapol have been restricted for now.

"All training programmes have been suspended.

"We have also conducted sanitisation at several locations in Pulapol," he said.

On Jan 27, the ministry announced that a workplace cluster was detected in Jalan Sultan Yahya Petra.

While it did not name the exact location, the ministry said the cluster involved staff and students of a training institute there.

The cluster was identified on Jan 26 after a 58-year-old started showing symptoms and underwent screening which came back positive for Covid-19.
