All those who have been in close contact with this Nike staff member have been ordered to undergo screening and self-quarantine.

Sunway Pyramid management also carried out deep cleaning – disinfection and sanitisation – of the mall They will also be increasing the cleaning frequency at the mall on a daily basis.

While some Malaysian netizens have demanded that the mall be shut down for 2 weeks, that’s really unnecessary as the SARS-CoV-2 virus does not survive for very long on surfaces, and can be destroyed by cleaning with soap.

We recommend that you follow the safe shopping tips recommended by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health :

  • bring a hand sanitiser to sanitise your car door handles or any handles that you may touch
  • wipe down all surfaces of the trolley or basket, and discard the wipe immediately,
  • bring and use a pair of disposable gloves, before touching the trolley or basket,
  • try to maintain a distance of 6 feet (1.5 metres) or more, from other shoppers,
  • try to shop during off-peak hours to avoid crowds, and
  • bring and use your own reusable shopping bags if possible
