EMCO: Marine police to monitor round-the-clock at Kg Gusi Kinarut, Sabah

KOTA KINABALU: A 24-hour control post has been initiated by marine police to monitor boat movements at Kampung Gusi Kinarut, Papar, where the enhanced movement control order status has been extended.

The coastal village initially underwent enhanced MCO from June 6 to June 19, but an extension was announced on Friday (June 18) from June 20 to July 3.

"The marine police has formed a control post at Kuala Sungai Kinarut starting Friday during the duration of the enhanced MCO with the purpose to curb any attempts by residents to leave the area via water route.

"The state government appreciates the police's efforts in implementing the control post," state Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun said in his daily update on Covid-19 developments in Sabah.

Sabah recorded 199 new cases on Friday with one new cluster registered at Keningau district.

The Pintas-Lingkudau-Keningau-Tambunan cluster was linked to a 34-year-old woman, who is an executive officer of an electricity supply company in Keningau, as the index case.

The cluster has 10 cumulative cases at present where cramped working space was believed to be the cause of the spread, said Masidi.

"Contact tracing and screening are still being carried out," he added.
