Rumour : 50+ Delta Variant COVID-19 Cases @ AEON 1 Utama!
Unverified rumours of over 50 cases of COVID-19 in AEON 1 Utama have circulated on WhatsApp for several days :

Apparently there are 50+ staff & customers infected with covid positive cases… Those who have been to 1U last few days are advised to go for Covid test …
They have confirmed that cases in Aeon bandar Utama is Delta Variant.
The Delta variant has been a real concern globally, because it is much more infectious and has been shown to be partially resistant to vaccines.

1 Utama : No Delta Variant COVID-19 Infections!
At that time, AEON only stated that their 1 Utama outlet was being closed for “a full sanitisation exercise as part of precautionary measure“.
Their statement, which was not posted in their Facebook page, avoided any mention of COVID-19.
On 7 July 2021, 1 Utama announced that “there is NO confirmed DELTA variant case” at their shopping mall.
However, 1 Utama did not refute the rumours of 50+ COVID-19 cases at their shopping mall recently.
So we can only deduce that AEON 1 Utama was shut down over COVID-19 concerns. Whether there are 50 cases or no cases at all – there’s no way to know.
All we can now confirm is that – no Delta variant case has been reported at the 1 Utama Shopping Centre.
