KUALA LUMPUR: Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin wants the public to continue to be cautious when celebrating Hari Raya Aidiladha this week with family members and friends to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Khairy, through his official Twitter account today, said the people must wear a face mask when being in enclosed or crowded areas, besides practising the TRIIS (test, report, isolate, inform, seek) method.

"Do a self-test before returning to your village,” he urged.

According to Khairy, the last Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration saw a rise in the number of Covid-19 cases to 3,410 on May 12 due to, among others, the increase in movements in the community and group activities. - Bernama
