Selangor to consider drive-through, house-to-house Covid-19 screening, says MB

SHAH ALAM: Selangor will look at ways to step up its mass screening efforts in the state, including drive-through and house-to-house testing, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari.

However, he also said this would depend on the availability of manpower and volunteers to carry out the testing.

"To do the screening test from house to house will require a huge team," he said after launching the Tabung Kemanusiaan Selangor Prihatin campaign earlier on Monday (May 24).

He added that some 36,000 Selangor residents have so far been screened for Covid-19 since the start of the mass community testing programme on May 8.
