KTO Malaysia : Korea Plaza Closed For 3 Days
On 6 January 2021, KTO (Korea Tourism Organisation) Malaysia announced the closure of Korea Plaza in Menara Hap Seng 2 after a positive COVID-19 case there.
They did not reveal any details of the affected person, so we don’t know if it was a KTO Malaysia employee at Korea Plaza, or another person in Menara Hap Seng 2.
They only stated that Korea Plaza will be closed from Wednesday, 6 January 2021 until Friday, 8 January 2021.
Korea Plaza will resume normal operations next week, on Monday, 11 January 2021.
Korea Plaza Closure Over COVID-19 Case : Official Statement
Here is the official statement by KTO Malaysia on the closure of Korea Plaza over the COVID-19 case at Menara Hap Seng 2.
Korea Plaza / Menara Hap Seng 2 COVID-19 Exposure : What’s The Risk?
Without any information on the affected person, or his/her role or job scope in Menara Hap Seng 2, it is impossible to determine the risk to people who went to Korea Plaza or Menara Hap Seng 2.
In fact, they didn’t even reveal when this person was at Korea Plaza or Menara Hap Seng 2.
They would, no doubt, be conducting contact tracing, and anyone determined to be a close contact will be asked to self-quarantine, and get tested.
In any case, the risk is minimised by common sense measures we can all take while we are out in public :
- Wear a face mask in public at all times, as it greatly reduces the risk of infection.
- Maintain physical distance of 1-2 metres from other people.
- Maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.
COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the building of any infectious particles, albeit temporarily.
COVID-19 : How To Keep Safe!
Here are a few simple steps to stay safe from COVID-19 :
- Avoid suspected cases or disease hotspots, like hospitals, if possible!
- Avoid public events and crowds
- Keep our hands clean with soap or hand sanitiser
- If you need to wear a surgical mask, make sure you put it on and remove it properly!
