He made this comment at his office in the state secretariat building today (December 21), after a meeting with the state security committee regarding the latest situation of the pandemic in Perak.
“It all depends on the level of awareness each and every individual has. Maintain physical distance, wash or sanitise hands frequently and wear a mask when out and about. Also, ensure that the MySejahtera app is utilised.
“Wherever we are, each adherence to SOP helps very much in containing the spread of the deadly virus, which is why I urge all Perakeans to follow them,” Saarani told reporters.
Meanwhile, Saarani emphasized that Perak is ready to open more quarantine centres to place close contact individuals of existing COVID-19 patients.
“This is based on necessity. Should any more local transmission outbreaks occur, the state disaster management committee will be ready to comply,” he stated.
Saarani added that the Malaysia Civil Defence Force (APM) is tasked to manage four quarantine stations in the state, which are Eastana Hotel and Fair Park Hotel, Ipoh; Sultan Azlan Shah Health Ministry Training Institute (ILKKM), Ulu Kinta and ILKKM Sungkai.
