Dengan berita yang dilaporkan semalam mengenai pekerja NSK Trading SDN. BHD telah diuji dengan keputusan positif COVID-19. Laporan tersebut menunjukkan bahawa seramai 80 pekerja syarikat disahkan dengan keputusan positif. Saya telah menghubungi Pengurus Besar Datuk Lim untuk mendapat maklumat yang lebih lanjut, beliau memberitahu bahawa berita tersebut adalah palsu. Pekerja-pekerja NSK Trading SDN.BHD telah mengikut syarat-syarat yang ditetapkan oleh kerajaan, setiap pekerja telah membuat saringan ujian COVID-19 tetapi keputusan belum keluar pada masa ini.

Kami berharap semua pihak memberi kerjasama jangan menyebarkan berita-berita yang palsu supaya tidak melakukan satu ketakutan kepada orang sekeliling kita.

Media Statement 7/1/2021

When I contact General Manager Datuk Lim for more information, he informed me that the news are false. NSK Trading SDN.

We hope that all parties cooperate and don’t spread fake news to spread fear to the public.

Thank you.


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 :

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.
