KUALA LUMPUR: Three factories and 10 business premises were ordered to close for violating Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) on Wednesday (June 30).

Senior Minister (security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said a total of 2,133 inspections were conducted on factories and 11,369 business premises.

"We will step up total enforcement in terms of inspections on factories and business premises, as there have been frequent cases of SOP violations.

"Cumulatively, the compliance operation task force conducted 98,376 inspections and snap checks nationwide," he said in a statement on Thursday (July 1).

Ismail Sabri said compound notices were issued to 535 individuals, while 14 others were remanded for violating the SOPs on Wednesday.

"Among the top offences are illegally crossing state and district borders as well as dining in premises, failure to maintain physical distancing, failure to record personal details before entering premises and not wearing face masks," he added.

On Ops Benteng, 10 undocumented immigrants were detained, while six land vehicles were seized on Wednesday, he said.

"The authorities conducted 992 roadblocks nationwide," he added.

Meanwhile, Ismail Sabri said 237,455 individuals returned to Malaysia since July 24 last year.

"They were placed under mandatory quarantine.
