Media Statement 7/1/2021
Regarding the news reported yesterday about NSK Trading SDN. BHD. employees who tested positive for COVID-19. The report states that as many as 80 company employees tested positive. When I contact General Manager Datuk Lim for more information, he informed me that the news are false. NSK Trading SDN. BHD. workers have followed government SOP, every worker underwent COVID-19 screening but the results are not out at this time.
We hope that all parties cooperate and don’t spread fake news to spread fear to the public.
NSK Selayang COVID-19 Cases : What’s The Risk?
If many employees were indeed infected, the risk to customers could be considerable, depending on whether the employees were customer-facing, and whether both customers and employees took protective measures :
- wearing face masks at all times
- maintaining physical distance with other people
- maintaining good hand hygiene
NSK will be required to conduct contact tracing, and those identified as close contacts will be asked to self-quarantine and get tested.
This case reinforces the importance of contact tracing, as well as the MySejahtera mobile app which logs the movements of its users.
While shopping malls and all other public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use MySejahtera, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.
Using MySejahtera also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.
COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the store of any infectious particles.
However, it is critical that you wear a face mask in public at all times, as they greatly reduce the risk of infection.
You should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.
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!
