“The difference in the numbers reflect a positive sign that the observance of SOPs by the people is increasing to curb the spread of COVID-19. At the same time, we see that the transmission trend is also decreasing and we believe it is due to the level of abidance. Thus, we urge Perakeans to continue playing their role,” he stated during a press conference at the Reception for Perak Media in conjunction with 214th Police Day at the Senior Police Officers’ Mess today (March 25).
