Covid-19: Four in JB compounded RM5,000 each for not observing SOP

KLUANG: Four individuals here have been slapped with a RM5,000 compound each for failing to adhere to Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOP).

Kluang OCPD Asst Comm Low Hang Seng said the compounds were issued during an operation at about 4.30pm on Friday (May 14) around Taman Sri Lambak, Kluang.

"The four men, who are between the ages of 21 and 25 years old, were spotted at the balcony of a house during an operation with the Health Department.
