PETALING JAYA: Commuters who used the LRT and MRT trains during the peak hours on Thursday (May 27) and Friday (May 28) morning were told to get screened for Covid-19, after two individuals had come forward, saying that they have tested positive.

According to Prasarana Malaysia Bhd, two individuals - Claudia Nuriman and Nurul Aisyah - had tweeted about their positive Covid-19 results after boarding the LRT and MRT trains on May 27 and May 28 respectively.

Claudia, in a tweet, said she boarded the LRT train from Wangsa Maju to Pasar Seni, and subsequently took the MRT to the Semantan station.

"Her journey was between 7.30am to 8.30am on May 28," said Prasarana Malaysia Bhd in a statement on Saturday (May 29).

Claudia also said she did not experience any symptoms, and she had received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on May 21.

On the other hand, Nurul Aisyah, in a tweet, revealed that she tested positive for Covid-19 and urged commuters who boarded the LRT train from Taman Melati to KLCC on May 27 to get tested.

"Her journey was between 8am to 9am," added Prasarana Malaysia Bhd.

Meanwhile, Prasarana Malaysia Bhd said they welcome the honesty displayed by the two commuters, adding that Malaysians who used public transportation must always abide by SOPs to stem Covid-19.

"If possible, use double face mask. Always be ethical in the train to reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading."

Prasarana Malaysia Bhd also assured that all trains were sanitised every night so that commuters have a peace of mind when they travel.

"If you have any medical symptoms, avoid using the train as it will put other passengers at risk."
