The rise of Covid-19 cases in Malaysia over the past few days was due to the enforcement of mandatory screening of all foreign workers in the country, said Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister (Security Cluster) said that on Saturday, adding that as long as the virus does not spread in the community, the government would be able to control it as the number involved only foreign workers.
