A man wearing a COVID-19 bracelet was apparently caught in Melaka flouting home quarantine restrictions.
Find out what happened from the lady who noticed, and reported him to the authorities…
Man With COVID-19 Bracelet Caught In Mahkota Parade?
Sri Suzaidah Masri was shopping when she noticed a man with a pink COVID-19 bracelet. The man hid the bracelet under his watch, but it fell out as he was carrying his child.
When he saw that she noticed his COVID-19 bracelet, he apparently gestured with his hand to his mouth, to show that his family had nothing to eat, and he was just buying groceries.
She immediately left and looked for the supermarket’s manager, who checked and confirmed that the man was really wearing a pink COVID-19 bracelet.
She then demanded that the manager report the man to the police, as the man’s wife was not wearing a COVID-19 bracelet and could buy food on his behalf.
Although she does not identify the shopping centre, the sign in one of the pictures show that the incident happened at the Mahkota Parade shopping centre in Melaka.
This was Sri Suzaidah Masri’s original Facebook post in Malay :
COVID-19 Quarantine Bracelet : What Is It?
The Malaysia Ministry of Health mandates that those who are under quarantine must wear a COVID-19 quarantine bracelet.
Those under quarantine are not just those who came back from overseas. They can include those who had close contact with COVID-19 patients, or are in administrative MCO areas.
The bracelet will state the place and date of testing. The individual wearing it cannot remove the bracelet, and must stay at home until the quarantine period is over.
The only exception is if they are the head of the household and need to go out to purchase essential supplies. However, this is only if the other adults in the family are also under quarantine.
Despite the perception that COVID-19 quarantine uses pink bracelets, they come in five colours – red, pink, blue, white and yellow.
The colour of the bracelet depends on the stock available to a particular District Health Office.
The bracelet can only be cut by authorised officers at the District Health Office, after the wearers have completed their quarantine.
The Malaysia Ministry of Health has called for the public to report those who are seen in public with these quarantine bracelets.
However, the public should not name and shame them online, and just report them to the police, as they may have legitimate reasons to be out, like getting an antibody test.
