During a press conference on Tuesday, Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that Covid-19 screening would only take place near where a case has been detected.

In this case he said, heath officials would only screen inmates at a single block, where a Covid-19 patient was detected at the Sungai Buloh prison, as inmates from different blocks do not intermingle.

He added that visitation by the public was not granted throughout the movement control order (MCO) period.
