DBKL: No major outbreak of Covid-19 infection in buildings, just routine sanitisation

KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 19): Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has denied that there was a major outbreak of Covid-19 infection in city hall buildings, said reports.

The presence of officers with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is just for a routine sanitisation process, reported Sinchew Daily.

A dozen officers donning PPE who turned up at the DBKL office at Jalan Raja Laut yesterday have sparked public concerns about an outbreak of Covid-19 infection in its office. 

The video showing the officers went viral on social media with rumours that there around 10 staff in DBKL’s office were infected by the Covid-19 coronavirus.

According to Sinchew Daily’s report, quoting the spokesperson of DBKL, there is no major outbreak of Covid-19 infections within the building. 

“All three buildings are fully closed from Jan 16 to 18, to carry out thorough cleaning and sanitisation work. It’s a routine cleaning process. DBKL office will resume operation from Jan 19,” he said.
