HIDE: Sabah has no issue with Federal govt directive, says Masidi

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has no issues following directives from the Federal Government with regards to the closure of malls listed under the Hotspots Identification for Dynamic Engagements (HIDE) system, says Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun.

The state Local Government and Housing Minister said the malls - Centre Point, Karamunsing and Suria Sabah, were listed in HIDE and have to be closed for three days, as announced by Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“We accept the fact that malls listed under HIDE would have to be closed for public health auditing and disinfection, but mall operators and management should be given advance notice, ” he said.

Masidi said following Ismail’s announcement on Saturday (May 8), the state Covid Management Committee chaired by the state secretary would decide when to close malls listed under HIDE.

“I believe he has informed the Commissioner of Police and police force on this, but the mall operators should be given advance notice, ” he said.

The listing of these locations and premises enables preemptive interventions and appropriate actions to be taken by the authorities, owners of premises and the public to prevent the emergence of new clusters.
