Tapah jail will possibly go to lockdown again.

Senior Security Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said this follows a surge in Covid-19 cases recently, with 55 confirmed infections so far. This is the second time that the EMCO has been placed under the Tapah Prison and its staff quarters, with the first time being from Oct 23 to Nov 4 last year. The EMCO at Sungai Udang Prison in Melaka was also announced to be extended due to a surge in positive cases. 1,234 of them have been tested to date, of which 331 have been found to be positive. The Ministry of Health reported that the Covid-19 distribution among detainees was still occurring, with 21 screening samples pending results.

Meanwhile, the EMCO will end tomorrow as expected at Kampung Sungai Ud, Dalat, Sarawak and Felda Bersia in Hulu Perak. On the regular offenses, Ismail said 1,111 people were detained yesterday by police over order-related offenses related to movement regulation. Ismail said in a statement that 1,040 of them were charged with compound fines and 71 were remanded. Most of the crimes were crossing districts or states without permission, he said (306). Other offences included activities that made physical distancing impossible, failure to wear a face mask, activities in entertainment facilities, and failure to include touch tracing or registration materials.
