AKTIVITI SARINGAN PENDEKATAN TERTUMPU DI DEPOT TAHANAN

Seperti dimaklumkan sebelum ini, salah satu aktiviti pendekatan tertumpu (targeted approach) bagi kumpulan berisiko tinggi yang telah dijalankan Kerajaan adalah saringan COVID-19 di Depot Tahanan. Lokasi-lokasi ini telah dikenalpasti berisiko tinggi dalam penularan jangkitan COVID-19 susulan didapati berlakunya jangkitan COVID-19 di kalangan OKT. Susulan itu, beberapa fokus telah diberikan dalam saringan ini, iaitu:

  • semua OKT yang baharu di Depot Tahanan perlu menjalani persampelan;
  • semua OKT yang akan dipindah ke pusat tahanan lain perlu disampel terlebih dahulu;
  • semua OKT yang bakal dihantar pulang ke negara asal perlu disampel terlebih dahulu;
  • semua kakitangan yang bertugas di pusat-pusat tahanan perlu disampel;
  • persampelan secara rawak sebagai penilaian risiko oleh Pejabat Kesihatan Daaerah/Jabatan Kesihatan Negeri.

Sehingga 18 Jun 2020, jam 12 tengah hari, sebanyak 13,149 individu telah menjalani persampelan di mana 782 kes telah dikesan positif COVID-19, 11,564 adalah negatif COVID-19 dan 803 masih menunggu keputusan. Daripada jumlah kes positif, tujuh (7) kes adalah di kalangan warganegara manakala 775 adalah bukan warganegara. Berikut adalah maklumat terperinci mengikut negeri:

NASIHAT KESIHATAN BERKAITAN COVID-19

Orang awam secara amnya juga sentiasa diingatkan untuk mengamalkan nasihat kesihatan yang kerap kali diingatkan oleh KKM iaitu:

  • Elakkan 3S / 3C:iaitu elakkan kawasan yang sesak (Crowded place), elakkan kawasan yang sempit (Confined space) dan elak sembang atau bertutur dengan jarak yang dekat (Close conversation).

  • Amalkan 3W:iaitu kerap mencuci tangan dengan air dan sabun (Wash), sangat digalakkan memakai alat pelitup separuh muka (penutup hidung dan mulut - face mask) di tempat awam atau jika bergejala (Wear), dan (Warn) iaitu amaran dari KKM yang lebih berkonsep peringatan seperti:
    • Elak bersalaman / bersentuhan;
    • Amalkan etika batuk dan bersin;
    • Dapatkan rawatan segera jika bergejala;
    • Duduk di rumah dan elakkan kunjung-mengunjung;
    • Lakukan aktiviti disinfeksi dan pembersihan di kawasan yang kerap disentuh.

Selain itu, sentiasa ingatlah kepada S.O.P, iaitu:

  • S: Syarat-syarat seperti yang ditetapkan di bawah PKPB;
  • O: Orang yang berisiko tinggi seperti kanak-kanak, bayi, warga emas dan orang kurang upaya (OKU) perlu dilindungi, individu tidak sihat dan bergejala dikehendaki segera menjalani pemeriksaan kesihatan;
  • P: Penjarakan sosial (social distancing) diamalkan pada setiap masa iaitu sekurang-kurangnya 1 meter.

KKM akan terus memantau perkembangan kejadian jangkitan di dalam negara, dan juga luar negara melalui maklumat yang diperolehi daripada pihak Pertubuhan Kesihatan Sedunia (WHO). Orang ramai akan sentiasa dimaklumkan sebarang perkembangan terkini mengenainya. Begitu juga, KKM akan memastikan langkah pencegahan dan kawalan yang sewajarnya adalah dilaksanakan secara berterusan.

UPDATES ON THE CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19)

SITUATION IN MALAYSIA

Current Status of Confirmed COVID-19 Cases Who Have Recovered

18 June 2020 – The Ministry of Health (MOH) would like to inform that 127 cases have fully recovered and discharged well today. Cumulatively, 8,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases have fully recovered (93.8% of total cumulative cases).

Current Situation of COVID-19 in Malaysia

    • 1 case: Close contact (of same household) to confirmed COVID-19 cases (Cases 8,455 and 8,508).

Fortunately, no additional COVID-19 death was reported to the National CPRC MOH today. Cumulatively, there are now 121 COVID-19 deaths in Malaysia (1.42% of total cumulative cases).

Targeted Approach for Screening at Detention Centres

As previously mentioned, one of the targeted approach activities for high-risk groups that the Government has undertaken is the COVID-19 screening at the Detention Centres. These locations have been identified as at high-risk for COVID-19 infection transmission following the high occurrence of COVID-19 infection among the detainees. Subsequently, screening activities became more focused, i.e.:

  • All new detainees at the Detention Centres must undergo sampling
  • All detainees to be transferred to another Detention Centre must be sampled first
  • All detainees to be sent back to their home country must be sampled first
  • All staff working in Detention Centres must be sampled
  • Random sampling will be conducted by the District Health Office or State Health Department as part of a risk assessment

As of 18 June 2020, 12 pm, a total of 13,149 individuals have been sampled, of which 782 cases had been detected as COVID-19 positive, 11,564 were negative for COVID-19 and 803 still awaiting results. Of those tested positive, seven (7) are Malaysians while 775 were non-Malaysians. The detail of the results by State is shown in Table 1.

Once confirmed COVID-19 cases are identified, these individuals are isolated and hospitalised for treatment, and active case detection will be conducted.
