SHAH ALAM (May 16): A one-minute video that went viral, showing people in Selangor queuing up to enter the Covid-19 assessment centre (CAC) at the Malawati Stadium here purportedly to house the patients, is fake.
Petaling district health office public health physician Dr Faridah Amin yesterday clarified that there was a misunderstanding by an individual who uploaded the video, claiming that the Malawati Stadium was used as a centre to house Covid-19 positive patients.
“The Malawati Stadium is only used as a CAC and no cases will be housed at the centre.
“Covid-19 positive patients will be assessed, and depending on the individual’s condition, followed either by home quarantine, admission to the Covid-19 Quarantine and Low-Risk Treatment Centre (PKRC) at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park (MAEPS) in Serdang, or hospital admission,” she told Bernama yesterday.
The Malawati Stadium has been operating as a CAC for the Petaling district since Feb 8, with a capacity to assess between 1,000 and 1,200 patients daily.
