Ismail Sabri: 49 premises closed for breaching Covid-19 SOPs

PETALING JAYA: A total of 49 premises comprising factories, businesses and construction sites were ordered to close for breaching Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOP), says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Deputy Prime Minister said the government had intensified enforcement in terms of checks on factories and business premises.

He said this is because there have been “too many” violations of government directives and gazetted SOP.

“On Friday (July 23), the compliance operation task force conducted 80,868 Covid-19 inspections and snap checks nationwide with its 19,168-strong personnel,” he said in a statement Saturday (July 24).

Ismail Sabri said the efforts included checks on 1,905 factories, 14,249 business premises, 742 construction sites and 270 workers' hostels.

From the checks led by the police on Friday, 337 individuals were detained for breaching SOPs.

Of the total, 332 were issued compounds while five were remanded.

“The public is advised to always follow the SOPs to break the chain of Covid-19 infections,” he urged.

Through Ops Benteng on Friday, five illegal immigrants were arrested while seven land vehicles were seized, Ismail Sabri added.
