PETALING JAYA: A total of eight new Covid-19 clusters have been identified, says Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.
In his daily briefing on Saturday (Feb 27) he said that seven out of the eight were linked to workplaces.
Dr Noor Hisham added that five were identified in Johor, namely; the Jalan Scientex Jaya, Jalan Mega Teknologi, Jalan Permas Sembilan, Jalan Gemilang Satu and Jalan Tampoi Besi clusters.
Additionally, the Kampung Pulau Raja cluster in Kelantan and the Jalan Tasek Avenue cluster in Perak were also linked to workplaces while the Buloh cluster in Sarawak is the only one linked to the community.
On the ongoing National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, Dr Noor Hisham said that existing SOP must still be followed.
"The decision to allow inter-state and inter-district travel will depend on several factors and will require a joint decision with the government.
"For now, public health action must continue to be conducted to ensure the immunisation programme runs smoothly. That is why all parties must adhere to the SOP fully until herd immunity is achieved, including those that have already received the vaccine," he said.
