Seperti yang dilaporkan dalam Kenyataan Akhbar Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan bertarikh 25 September 2020, terdapat 10 kes yang dikesan positif COVID-19 setelah kembali dari Sabah pada 20 hingga 25 September 2020). Pada hari ini pula, dikesan terdapat 11 lagi kes positif COVID-19 yang dikesan di Semenanjung Malaysia setelah kembali dari negeri Sabah. Peningkatan kes dan kluster COVID-19 di Negeri Sabah masih berterusan dan 4 daerah telah dikenalpasti sebagai zon merah (setelah merekodkan bilangan kes COVID-19 melebihi 40 kes dalam tempoh 14 hari kebelakangan).

Mengambilkira situasi semasa ini, terdapat keperluan untuk melaksanakan langkah pencegahan dan kawalan penularan jangkitan COVID-19 ke atas individu dengan sejarah perjalanan dari Sabah bagi memantau risiko penularan jangkitan dalam kalangan individu-individu tersebut. Justeru itu, bermula 27 September 2020 sehingga 10 Oktober 2020, aktiviti saringan akan dijalankan kepada semua individu yang baru tiba dari Sabah di semua Pintu Masuk (Domestik dan Antarabangsa). Mereka diwajibkan:

  1. Memuat turun dan mendaftar aplikasi MySejahtera dan daftar masuk (check-in) menggunakan aplikasi ini setibanya di Pintu Masuk (Domestik dan Antarabangsa);
  2. Menjalani saringan gejala jangkitan saluran pernafasan dan ujian saringan pengesanan COVID-19 sejurus tiba di Pintu Masuk (Domestik dan Antarabangsa);
  3. Menjalani perintah pengawasan dan pemerhatian di rumah (HSO). Kesemua individu di Pintu Masuk (Domestik dan Antarabangsa) akan diberi surat HSO, dan dipakaikan gelang kuarantin. Tarikh HSO akan bermula dari tarikh ketibaan di Pintu Masuk (Domestik dan Antarabangsa) sehingga keputusan makmal diperolehi. Pelepasan HSO akan diberikan sekiranya keputusan ujian makmal menunjukkan negatif COVID-19;
  4. Sekiranya terdapati individu yang perlu meneruskan perjalanan ke rumah masing-masing dengan menaiki kenderaan awam seperti teksi dan kereta Grab, surat kebenaran untuk ke alamat yang ditetapkan akan diberikan pada hari tersebut; dan
  5. Sekiranya mengalami gejala jangkitan saluran pernafasan dalam tempoh 14 hari dari tarikh pulang, individu tersebut perlu menjalani saringan ulangan bagi COVID-19.   

Saringan ke atas individu (warganegara dan bukan warganegara) yang pulang dari Sabah ini dikecualikan daripada caj ujian COVID-19.

Tempoh pelaksanaan langkah pencegahan dan kawalan penularan jangkitan COVID-19 ke atas individu yang baru pulang dari Sabah akan disemak dari semasa ke semasa, berdasarkan penilaian risiko penularan jangkitan pada masa tersebut dan maklumat mengenai sebarang perubahan berkaitannya akan dimaklumkan kepada umum.

NASIHAT KESIHATAN BERKAITAN COVID-19

KKM ingin menasihati orang ramai agar terus patuhi saranan serta nasihat-nasihat kesihatan yang sering ditekankan. Jadikanlah nasihat-nasihat ini satu kebiasaan baharu dalam kehidupan harian:

  • 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), memakai alat pelitup muka (facemask) di tempat awam yang telah diwajibkan oleh pihak Majlis Keselamatan Negara (MKN) mulai 1 Ogos 2020 atau jika bergejala (Wear), dan (Warn) iaitu amaran dari KKM yang lebih berkonsep peringatan seperti:
  • Elakkan bersalaman / bersentuhan termasuk melagakan mana-mana bahagian tubuh badan sebagai menggantikan cara kebiasaan bersalam;
    • 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.

Patuhlah kepada S.O.P sebagai normal baharu iaitu:

  • S : Syarat-syarat seperti yang ditetapkan di bawah Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Pemulihan (PKPP);
  • 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 fizikal (physical distancing) sekurang-kurangnya 1 meter diamalkan pada setiap masa.

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.

Measures for the Prevention and Control of COVID-19 for Individuals Returning from Sabah

As reported in the Director General of Health’s Press Release dated 25 September 2020, 10 confirmed COVID-19 cases were detected after returning from Sabah from 20 to 25 September 2020. Today, an additional 11 confirmed COVID-19 cases were detected in Peninsular Malaysia among individuals returning from Sabah. The increase in COVID-19 cases and clusters in Sabah is still ongoing and four districts have been identified as Red Zones (after recording an excess of 40 COVID-19 cases in the past 14 days).

Taking into account the current situation, there is a need to implement measures to prevent and control the transmission of COVID-19 infection in individuals with a travel history from Sabah to monitor the risk of infection transmission among these individuals. Therefore, from 27 September 2020 to 10 October 2020, screening will be conducted for all individuals arriving from Sabah at the International Ports of Entry (PoE). They are required to:

  1. Download and register the MySejahtera application and check-in using this application upon arrival at the International PoE;
  2. Undergo respiratory symptom screening and COVID-19 detection screening test upon arrival at the PoE;
  3. Undergo a home surveillance and observation order (HSO). All individuals at the PoE will be given an HSO letter and a quarantine wristband to be worn. The HSO dates will start from the date of arrival at the PoE until the laboratory results are obtained. HSO release will be given if the laboratory test result is negative for COVID-19;
  4. If there are individuals who need to continue their journey to their homes by public transport such as taxis and Grab cars, a letter of permission to go to the designated home address will be given on that day; and
  5. If experiencing respiratory tract symptoms within 14 days from the date of return, the individual will need to undergo a repeated screening for COVID-19.

Screening of individuals (Malaysians and non-Malaysians) returning from Sabah is exempted from the COVID-19 test charge.

The duration of implementation of the COVID-19 infection prevention and control measures on individuals who have just returned from Sabah will be reviewed from time to time, based on the infection risk assessment at the time, and information on any related changes will be made public.

Health Advisory on COVID-19

MOH advices the public to continue to comply to the recommendations and health advisories that are often emphasised. These advisories must be incorporated as the new normal in our daily life, including:

  • Avoid the 3Cs: Avoid Crowded places; Confined spaces; and Close conversations.
  • Practice the 3Ws: Wash hands frequently with water and soap; Wearing facemasks is now mandatory in public areas (starting from 1 August 2020 as directed by the National Security Council) or highly recommended if symptomatic; Warn self and others for the following, in line with MOH’s advisories:
    • Avoid shaking hands or touching others, including bumping parts of the body in lieu of shaking hands
    • Practice good coughing and sneezing etiquette
    • Seek early treatment if symptomatic
    • Stay at home and avoid from visiting others
    • Regularly clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces in common areas

In addition to the SOPs, continue to adhere to THiS as the new normal:

  • T: Terms set under the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO)
  • Hi: High-risk groups such as children, infants, older adults and the disabled must be protected, and if unwell with symptoms, to seek early treatment
  • S: Safe physical distancing is practiced at all times, of at least 1 metre away from others

MOH will continue to monitor the development of the COVID-19 situation, both in the country as well as internationally, based on available information from the World Health Organization (WHO). The public will be continuously updated on the latest information. In addition, MOH will ensure that appropriate preventive and control measures are continuously implemented.
