Seri Puteri School Cluster Shows COVID-19 Vaccine Working!

Seri Puteri School Cluster Shows COVID-19 Vaccine Working!

The Seri Puteri school cluster has now expanded to 139 positive cases, but what it really shows is how well the COVID-19 vaccine is working!

 

Seri Puteri School Cluster : A Quick Primer!

The Seri Puteri school cluster originated from a teacher who became symptomatic on 22 November 2021, and was confirmed positive two days later.

Screening of the teacher’s close contact detected another seven (7) cases – another teacher, and six (6) students. This was when it was called Kluster Persiaran Tasik (Lake Promenade Cluster).

All six students were sent to the MAEPS quarantine and treatment centre, while the two teachers were quarantined at home.

On 1-2 December 2021, the Sepang Health Department screened 763 students, teachers and school employees, and detected 131 cases.

In total, this COVID-19 cluster now has 139 cases (out of 946 people screened) :

  • 114 students
  • 15 teachers
  • 10 school employees

 

Seri Puteri School Cluster Shows COVID-19 Vaccine Working!

At first glance, the Seri Puteri school cluster appears to show that the COVID-19 vaccine has failed. After all. 139 people got infected despite being vaccinated against COVID-19.

But if you look at the data, it tells a different story…

According to the Health Minister, here’s the data on the first batch to be screened :

People screened : 451 (13 teachers, 1 employee, 437 students)
Positive cases : 73 (2 teachers, 71 students)

All teachers were fully-vaccinated.
All students (except four) were fully-vaccinated.

65 students were transferred to the MAEPS quarantine centre.
All positive cases are in Category 1 or Category 2A, all in stable condition.

The Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) then followed up with additional information :

All 139 cases in the Seri Puteri school cluster are in stable condition, and they are all in Category 1 and Category 2A (symptomatic but low risk).

If you didn’t catch it yet, here’s the reason why this school cluster shows just how effective the COVID-19 vaccine has been.

ALL COVID-19 cases in this cluster were either asymptomatic (Category 1) or mildly symptomatic (Category 2A).

That is a clear example of how the COVID-19 vaccine has protected all those who were infected from hospitalisation and death.

I wrote long ago that COVID-19 vaccine efficacy against infection does not matter as much as its protection against hospitalisation and death.

Yes, it would be nice if the vaccine prevents COVID-19 infection (and it does for many people), but its primary purpose is really to prevent hospitalisation and death.

In that respect, the COVID-19 vaccines are doing a brilliant job. So please make sure you vaccinate your kids to protect them against COVID-19!

National Cancer Institute Offers Free Meds + Cheap Chemo?

Does the National Cancer Institute in Putrajaya offer free medication, and cheap chemotherapy?

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : National Cancer Institute Offers Free Meds + Cheap Chemo!

This message has been circulating on WhatsApp for several years now :

If you know anyone who needs chemo treatment (化疗) and doesn’t have insurance or money, kindly refer them to National Cancer Institute in Putrajaya.

Chemo is RM4k and for seniors citizens it is only RM200 per chemo.

Medication is free. Twin sharing room is RM80.

Doctors and nurses are competent and it’s a new hospital less than 3 years old.

Please share so that our community will benefit out of this information.

National Cancer Institute (Institut Kanser Negara)

Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia
No. 4, Jalan P7, Presint 7,
62250 Wilayah Persekutuan Putrajaya.
Tel : +603-8892 5555
Faks: +603-8892 5588

Email: ncipro@nci.gov.my
URL: http://nci.moh.gov.my

Director: Dr. Asmayani binti Khalib

 

Truth : National Cancer Institute Offer Is Fake News!

The viral message has been going around since 2016, and is FAKE NEWS. Let’s take a look at the facts…

Fact #1 : National Cancer Institute Was Established In 2013

The National Cancer Institute began operations on 2 September 2013, providing world-class treatments and healthcare for cancer patients.

That ties in with the first circulation of this fake message around 2016, which claims that the hospital is less than 3 years old.

Fact #2 : National Cancer Institute Is A Public Hospital

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is a public hospital under the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM). Therefore, it is no surprise that it provides treatments at highly affordable rates.

However, it is misleading to refer people to the National Cancer Institute for free medication and cheap chemotherapy, because the NCI charges the SAME RATES as other KKM public hospitals!

Fact #3 : Charges Are All Wrong

As mentioned in Fact #3, the National Cancer Institute charges the same rates as other public hospitals.

The NCI website even refers patients to the Malaysia Ministry of Health’s page on hospital charges, which will show you that the fees mentioned are wrong :

  • Each chemotherapy treatment costs RM200 for First Class, RM100 for Second Class, and just RM50 for Third Class.
  • A private room with air-conditioning costs RM80 per day.
  • A private room without air-conditioning costs RM60 per day.
  • A twin-sharing room, without air-conditioning costs RM40 per day.

The prices mentioned above are accurate as of 29 October 2021.

Fact #4 : NCI Called The Post “Fabricated” And “Baseless”

The Director of the National Cancer Institute actually issued a press release on 18 August 2016, which labelled the post as “fabricated” and “baseless”.

National Cancer Institute (NCI) is concerned on the OFFER which was disseminated via social media since the past few months on NCI’s treatment charges which is also included the name of NCI Director, Dr Asmayani binti Khalib and NCI contact details.

NCI asserted that such OFFER is FABRICATED and BASELESS. Each treatment received by the patients varies as the attending officers make recommendation based on the patients’ needs. Information on treatment charge is available on NCI website: http://nci.moh.gov.my/.

How Schools Will Reopen In New PPN Phase 3 + 4 States!

The states moving to PPN Phase 3 or Phase 4 will reopen their schools next month.

Frankly, it’s all quite confusing, but let’s try to break it down…

 

New PPN Phase 3 + 4 : Schools To Reopen In 2 Weeks

These states will be upgraded to PPN Phase 3 or Phase 4, starting Monday, 18 October 2021.

  • Kelantan, Penang, Sabah and Kedah will be upgraded from Phase 2 to Phase 3
  • Melaka and Klang Valley (KL, Selangor, Putrajaya) will be upgraded from Phase 3 to Phase 4

As per the earlier Ministry of Education announcement, schools in states that get upgraded to a new PPN phase will transition after two (2) weeks.

However, this means schooling will resume for some students only for a few weeks before the December school holidays begin…

 

How Schools Will Reopen In New PPN Phase 3 + 4 States!

The latest press release by the Ministry of Education is rather confusing, so here is a quick summary of what they’re trying to say :

PPN Phase 3 Schools

These students in PPN Phase 3 states can start face-to-face classes starting Monday, 1 November 2021 :

  • Pre-school students
  • Special needs students (MBK) in National Special Education Schools and Integrated Special Education Program

  • Pre-University students in Malaysia Sports School (SSM)
  • Students studying for public exams in boarding school / day school / private school.
  • Students studying for international exams like IGCSE O-Level, A-Level, Australia Higher School Certificate and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) and other international exams.

This applies to both public and private schools registered under the Ministry of Education.

PPN Phase 4 Schools

These students in PPN Phase 4 states can start face-to-face classes starting Monday, 1 November 2021 :

  • Standard 1, 2 and 3 students
  • Form 3 and Form 4 students

These students in PPN Phase 4 states can start face-to-face classes starting Monday, 8 November 2021 :

Foreign Workers To Pay For Vaccination In Klang Valley!

Malaysia will reopen COVID-19 vaccination for foreign workers in the Klang Valley, but it is NO LONGER FREE!

Here is what you need to know about this new COVID-19 vaccination initiative!

 

Vaccination For Foreign Workers : Used To Be FREE!

Malaysia earlier allowed all foreign workers, including those who are undocumented, to get their COVID-19 vaccination for FREE.

However, that walk-in vaccination programme for all foreigners only ran for a short time – from 9 until 22 August 2021.

The government seemed to have forgotten that we are only safe when everyone is safe.

 

Foreign Workers To Pay For Vaccination In Klang Valley!

On 23 September 2021, JKJAV appeared to have realised the folly of not vaccinating foreign workers.

They announced that foreign workers will be allowed to get vaccinated in the Klang Valley, but it will no longer be free!

Here are the details of the new COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers :

When?

The COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers in the Klang Valley will start on Monday, 27 September 2021 and end on Wednesday, 6 October 2021.

The COVID-19 vaccination programme will run from 9 AM until 6 PM every day.

Where?

The COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers in the Klang Valley will be conducted at a single vaccination centre :

CIDB PPV (COVID-19 Vaccination Centre)
CIDB Convention Centre,
Jalan Cheras, Kuala Lumpur

How?

Foreign workers, or their employers, are encouraged to register online at https://vaccine.cidblink.com/ to receive an appointment, and to expedite their registration process at the PPV.

The registration can be done individually by the foreign workers themselves, or by their employers.

The cost of vaccinating each foreign worker will be RM 90 for two (2) doses.

After registering and paying online, the foreign worker will receive an appointment through email and/or SMS.

Those who are unable to register online may walk-in for their vaccination at the CIDB PPV. However, they must be prepared to pay for their vaccination at the PPV, and will only be vaccinated if there are available doses.

Employers who are sending more than 10 foreign workers in one day must send a company representative to help manage them at the CIDB vaccination centre. The employer is also responsible to ensure that they understand the process and forms that must be filled.

What To Bring?

On the day of their vaccinations, the foreign workers must bring :

  • passport or other forms of identification (printed)
  • smartphone with MySejahtera
  • any evidence to show that they are working in the Klang Valley (pay slip, employer’s letter, etc.)

Daily Quota

The CIDB PPV is only able to vaccinate up to 2,000 people a day.

Those with appointments will be given priority. Those who walk-in will be vaccinated on a first come, first served basis, based on available doses.

Malaysia: Undocumented People To Get FREE COVID Vaccine

Please help to spread word that undocumented people in Malaysia are entitled to get the FREE COVID-19 vaccine too!

 

Malaysia : Undocumented People Can Get FREE COVID-19 Vaccine!

On 31 July 2021, JKJAV officially announced details of the walk-in vaccination programme, which is also open to foreigners including undocumented migrants and refugees!

This walk-in vaccination programme is currently available only in the Klang Valley, but should eventually be made available nationwide.

However, undocumented people in Malaysia might not be aware that they now have the right to get vaccinated against COVID-19 for FREE!

So please SHARE the following details of the walk-in vaccination programme for foreigners and undocumented people with them!

It is critical that we vaccinate foreigners and undocumented people to achieve herd immunity, because no one is safe until everyone is safe.

 

How Can Undocumented People In Malaysia Get COVID-19 Vaccine?

It was not possible for undocumented people in Malaysia to get access to the FREE COVID-19 vaccination earlier, as registration required a valid MyKad or passport.

That changes with the new walk-in vaccination programme, which NO LONGER requires any identification.

What Do They Need To Bring?

Undocumented migrants and refugees do NOT need to bring any identification or proof of citizenship. They only need to bring :

  1. Proof of address in Klang Valley (Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Putrajaya) *
    For example : utility bill, credit card bill, employment card, student card, etc.
  2. People with co-morbidities : doctor’s letter or any relevant document that confirms your health condition or history.

* This is possibly to prevent people from other states trying to travel interstate to get vaccinated.

Vaccine Consent Form Available In Their Native Language!

JKJAV has made the vaccine consent form available in 14 foreign languages, to help reach out to undocumented migrants and refugees.

These forms will be made available at the vaccination centre, but it will be helpful if you can print and explain it to them.

They can also pre-fill the forms and bring them to the vaccination centre.

Read more : JKJAV : Vaccine Consent Form Now In 14 More Languages!

When Can They Go?

The walk-in vaccination programme for foreigners, including undocumented migrants and refugees, will run from 9 until 22 August 2021.

  • Foreigners 40 years and above, or with co-morbidities : 9 to 11 August 2021
  • Foreigners 18 years and above : 12 to 22 August 2021

Where Should They Go?

The walk-in vaccination programme for foreigners, including undocumented migrants and refugees, is available only at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium vaccination centre.

But please note that they can only walk in for their free COVID-19 vaccination from 2 PM onwards.

Read more : Bukit Jalil Stadium Vaccination Centre : Video + Picture Guide!

Will They Be Eligible For Vaccine Outreach Programme?

It is currently UNKNOWN if undocumented migrants and refugees will be allowed to walk-in at vaccine outreach programme locations, but we certainly hope that will be the case!

JKJAV will only announce details of the vaccine outreach programme later, but here is what we know so far :

  • it will start from 9 August 2021 onwards
  • it will involve NGOs, mobile vaccination teams and other relevant agencies.
  • you will need to bring proof of residence in the Klang Valley (Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Putrajaya)
    For example : address on identity card, driving licence, utility bill, credit card bill, employment card, student card, etc.
  • If you have co-morbidities, you need to bring your doctor’s letter or any relevant document that confirms your health condition or history.

 

Help Undocumented People In Malaysia Get The COVID-19 Vaccine!

It is very important that we get all undocumented migrants and refugees vaccinated against COVID-19 for FREE.

This prevents them from being exploited by unscrupulous people selling COVID-19 vaccines for profit, often at obscene prices.

It will also help us achieve herd immunity in Malaysia, helping to protect each other. We are not safe until everyone is safe.

So please help to reach out to undocumented people in your neighbourhood. Pass word along that they can get vaccinated against COVID-19 for FREE!

Places IDed By HIDE COVID-19 System To Close For 3 Days!

Malaysia has ordered that all places identified by the new HIDE COVID-19 analytics system must close for three days!

Here are the latest details!

 

HIDE COVID-19 System : What Is It?

The HIDE (Hotspot Identification For Dynamic Engagement) System uses Big Data Analytics (BDA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to predict potential COVID-19 hotspots over a 7-day horizon.

To be clear, the list of places flagged by the HIDE system are NOT actual COVID-19 cluster locations.

Instead, they are the places that the HIDE system predicts COULD soon become COVID-19 cluster locations.

The HIDE system leverages MySejahtera check-ins, and other existing healthcare databases to make these predictions.

 

HIDE COVID-19 System : What Is It For?

By predicting potential COVID-19 hotpots, the HIDE system basically alerts businesses to either shut down, or quickly take precautions.

Now, premises flagged by the system do NOT need to shut down, unless required by enforcement authorities.

Instead, they are only advised to quickly undertake pre-emptive measures like :

  • Enhance gatekeeping (checking the risk status of MySejahtera check-ins, and deny individuals with ‘high risk’ status from entering);
  • Screen their workers for COVID-19, be it with RTK-Ag or RT-PCR tests; and
  • Enhance crowd control measures, especially areas with tight spaces, or that are prone to overcrowding.

By taking those measures, the risk of becoming a COVID-19 hotspot can be quickly lowered, and these premises will be taken off the HIDE list.

 

Places IDed By HIDE COVID-19 System To Close For 3 Days!

On 8 May 2021, Malaysia Senior Minister for Security Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaacob announced that all places identified by the new HIDE COVID-19 system must immediately close for three days, from 9 May until 11 May 2021!

Here is the full list of places flagged by the HIDE system as potential COVID-19 hotspots over the next 7 days.

Fact Check : Buka Puasa Picnic Allowed In Putrajaya?

A picture of people gathering for a Buka Puasa (Iftar) picnic in Putrajaya is going viral.

Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Buka Puasa Picnic Allowed In Putrajaya?

A picture showing crowds of people gathering for a Buka Puasa (Iftar) picnic in Putrajaya is going viral, with this warning message :

Buka puasa picnics allowed. This was in putrajaya which has more cases than Selangor

BTW Covid cases today over 2000

 

Buka Puasa Picnic Allowed In Putrajaya? The Facts!

Netizens are justly angry with the picture, partly because of the crowd size, and partly because no one appears to be wearing face masks.

However, the truth is not quite what it seems… here are the FACTS :

Fact #1 : The Picture Was From 2019

That viral picture of people having their Buka Puasa picnic is genuine, and was taken at the Laman Iftar in Putrajaya.

However, this picture was taken two years ago – in 2019, not 2021. Obviously, at that time, COVID-19 did not exist and so, there was no need for face masks or physical distancing.

It was posted on 14 April 2021 by Perbadanan Putrajaya, but they specifically pointed out it was taken in 2019.

Fact #2 : Buka Puasa Picnics Are Allowed

Buka Puasa events, including buffet and gatherings are allow.

On 14 April 2021, the Malaysia National Security Council released the SOP for such Buka Puasa activities.

Putrajaya is in an RMCO area, and so Buka Puasa / Iftar activities are allowed at full capacity, subject to other SOP conditions.

Whether such a decision is wise during the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic – that’s another issue altogether.

Fact #3 : There Are SOPs To Adhere To

To allay fears that allowing Buka Puasa activities while the COVID-19 pandemic is raging, the government insisted on SOPs being followed.

The Perbadanan Putrajaya post with this viral picture actually listed those conditions for those who wanted to do it at the park :

  1. Wear a face mask
  2. Maintain cleanliness
  3. Scan the MySejahtera QR code
  4. Take your body temperature before entering
  5. Maintain physical distance
  6. Bring your own picnic mat
  7. There must be 2 metres between picnic mats

While Perbadanan Putrajaya did not share pictures of the actual picnic, the pictures they shared showed orange physical distancing markers and people wearing face masks.

Fact #4 : Selangor Has More Cases Than Putrajaya

The claim that Putrajaya has more COVID-19 cases than Selangor is outright false.

As of 14 April 2021, Putrajaya only recorded a total of 1,254 cases, while Selangor had 97X more – 121,358 cases!

Ismail Sabri : KL-Selangor Travel Allowed, But Not Putrajaya

For those who are confused by the latest inter-district travel announcement, here is the final word – travel between KL and Selangor is allowed, but not to Putrajaya.

 

Ismail Sabri : KL, Selangor, Putrajaya Considered One Zone

Back in May 2020, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) announced that KL, Selangor and Putrajaya are considered one zone for the purpose of disease control – the Klang Valley zone.

Therefore, travel between KL, Selangor and Putrajaya was allowed at that time, as they were all CMCO / PKPB areas under the same zone, not different states.

The government considered travel between KL, Selangor and Putrajaya as inter-district travel, not interstate travel.

 

Ismail Sabri : KL-Selangor Travel Allowed, But Not Putrajaya

On 2 March 2021, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) announced that inter-district travel was now allowed nationwide, except in Sabah.

However, that caused some confusion as people wondered – is KL, Selangor and Putrajaya still considered as the same zone?

Malaysia Senior Minister of Defence Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri later issued another statement, reaffirming that Selangor, KL and Putrajaya are still considered as one zonethe Klang Valley zone.

However, only free travel between KL and Selangor is allowed this time. This is because Putrajaya has been classified as an RMCO area.

Therefore, travel from CMCO areas like KL and Selangor to Putrajaya will require police permission, unless it is for official work purposes (with employer’s letter).

 

Official Statement On KL, Selangor, Putrajaya Travel By Ismail Sabri

At 9 PM on 2 March 2021, MKN issued this official statement by Senior Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri :

Seperti yang dilaksanakan sewaktu PKPB 1.0, Selangor, WP Kuala Lumpur dan WP Putrajaya adalah dianggap satu zon.

Pergerakan rentas antara Selangor (PKPB) ke WP Kuala Lumpur (PKPB) adalah dibenarkan.

Walaubagaimanapun pergerakan dari Selangor atau WP Kuala Lumpur ke WP Putrajaya masih tidak dibenarkan kerana WP Putrajaya berstatus PKPP. Ini bagi melindungi WP Putrajaya dari penularan COVID-19.

Pergerakan dari Selangor atau WP Kuala Lumpur ke WP Putrajaya masih memerlukan kebenaran polis kecuali bagi mereka yang bekerja dan mempunyai surat majikan.

Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob
Menteri Kanan Pertahanan
2 Mac 2021

And here is our English translation :

As implemented during CMCO 1.0, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya are considered one zone.

Cross movements between Selangor (CMCO) to Kuala Lumpur (CMCO) are allowed.

However travel from Selangor or Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya is still not allowed, because Putrajaya is under RMCO status. This is to protect Putrajaya from the spread of COVID-19.

Travel from Selangor or Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya still requires police permission except for those who are working and have employer’s letter.

Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob
Senior Defence Minister
2 March 2021

Malaysia : Inter-District Travel Allowed, Except In Sabah!

As expected, the Malaysian government just lifted their ban on inter-district travel!

Here is what you need to know about this change!

 

Malaysia : Inter-District Travel Allowed, Except In Sabah!

The Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) just lifted their ban on inter-district travel across the entire country, except in Sabah.

Starting 5 March 2021, you can freely travel within your state, across district lines.

This was long expected, after they lifted the 10 km travel limit on 16 February 2021.

The only exception is Sabah, where inter-district travel is still forbidden. You must travel only within your district in Sabah.

 

Inter-District Travel Allowed, But Not Interstate Travel 

However, please note that interstate travel is still forbidden across the country.

The only exception is Kuala Lumpur and Selangor – they are all considered the “same state” – the Klang Valley.

So residents of KL and Selangor Putrajaya can freely travel within the Klang Valley, except to Putrajaya which is under RMCO.

Police permission is needed for KL and Selangor residents to travel to Putrajaya, unless it is for work (with employer’s letter).

Travel Restriction : KL, Selangor, Putrajaya District List

MKN finally clarified their definition of districts, so here is the district list for KL, Selangor and Putrajaya that we compiled!

For Northern states, please see Penang, Perak, Kedah, Perlis District List
For Southern states, please see Johor, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan District List
For Eastern states, please see Pahang, Kelantan, Terengganu District List
For East Malaysia states, please see Sabah, Labuan, Sarawak District List

 

Interstate + Inter-District Travel : Forbidden Nationwide

Ever since 13 January 2021, interstate and inter-district travel are FORBIDDEN in MCO areas. In CMCO areas, interstate travel is forbidden, but inter-district travel is allowed.

But when the 10 km travel limit was lifted, MKN announced that inter-district and interstate travel are FORBIDDEN  nationwide.

Ever since the inter-district travel was forbidden in Malaysia, people have wondered – how do you define the districts?

Unfortunately, the lack of a proper definition has led to some confusion – is KL a single district? Do we follow police districts or state districts?

This anecdotal example, that is being shared on social media, claims that the police are issuing fines based on police districts, instead of state districts.

Apparently daerah in PKP mean ikut Daerah IPD polis.

Daughter came back from Subang Jaya to Bukit Jelutong kena saman merentasi Daerah katanya because of different IPD . As far as i know Daerah in Selangor ada 9 je..and Subang Jaya and Shah Alam is under Daerah Petaling. Called IPD Shah Alam to clarify yes they said kena saman because different Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah Jurisdiction.

Called MKN asking where is the SOP definition regarding Daerah.. Officer cannot answer but affirm Subang Jaya and Shah Alam under 1 daerah. Confused ask to refer to Polis… Polis ask to refer to MKN.. Polis officer confused MKN also confused.

Apparently Polis issue compound on behalf of Pejabat Kesihatan because under Akta Kesihatan..kompaun have to pay to Pejabat kesihatan in Kelana Jaya..so ask them kena mintak permit or not to go to Kelana Jaya pay kompoun..because different IPD ..no need pulak.

Lastly called Pejabat Kesihatan they also confused why kena saman because same Daerah..lastly kena buat surat rayuan pembatalan kompaun. wasted whole morning making phone calls to get definition of Daerah. No Definite answer. Semua confused.

Adoi Malaysia..land of the Confused Civil Servant and Politicians

 

Travel Restriction : MKN Clarifies Definition Of District!

After weeks of uncertainty, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) finally clarified their definition of district for the inter-district travel ban.

On 20 February 2021, they released an updated MCO SOP, which included this definition of district.

  • the entire federal territory of KL is considered as a single district
  • the district borders are as defined by the states

In other words, you can travel without restrictions throughout the entire Kuala Lumpur, and districts as defined by the states, not the police.

 

Travel Restriction : KL, Selangor, Putrajaya District List

Kuala Lumpur District List

Kuala Lumpur has 11 districts, but they are all considered as a single district for the purpose of travel restrictions.

Although MKN did not specifically mention Putrajaya, we believe it is also considered as a single district like Kuala Lumpur, as it is much smaller than Kuala Lumpur.

But just in case, here is the list of the twenty one precincts in Putrajaya. Until MKN says otherwise, it’s best to stay within your own precinct.

Fact Check : PKPD In Malaysia Extended To 3 January 2021?

The viral infographic claiming that the PKPD for eight states and federal territories in Malaysia was just extended to 3 January 2021 is FALSE.

Take a look at what just went viral on social media, and why it is just fake news!

 

Claim : PKPD in Malaysia Extended To 3 January 2021?

This was the infographic that went viral on social media today, 3 December 2020. We added the FALSE overlay to prevent further abuse.

It claimed that the PKPD (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Diperketatkan) or EMCO (Enhanced Movement Control Order) for these eight states and federal territories in Malaysia was just extended to 3 January 2021.

  • Selangor
  • Sabah
  • Labuan
  • Kuala Lumpur
  • Putrajaya
  • Perak
  • Terengganu
  • Pulau Pinang

 

PKPD In Malaysia Extended To 3 January 2021 : FAKE NEWS!

That infographic is fake and was edited from previous infographics released by the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN).

For the Doubting Thomases of the world who always ask, “How you know?”, here are the facts why…

Fact #1 : There Is No PKPD / EMCO Of Any State In Malaysia

There is no PKPD or EMCO covering an entire state or federal territory in Malaysia.

Only PKPB (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Bersyarat) or CMCO (Conditional Movement Control Order) exists for these seven states or federal territories :

  • North : Penang, Perak
  • East : Terengganu, Kelantan
  • Central : Selangor, Kuala Lumpur
  • South : Negeri Sembilan

Fact #2 : Labuan Is A Federal Territory

Labuan is always listed as WP Labuan in government infographics, because it is a federal territory, like Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.

Fact #3 : The Government Has Debunked It As Fake

The Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) has just publicly debunked the infographic as fake (with our English translation).

INI ADALAH PALSU!! Tak pasti jangan kongsi.

THIS IS FALSE!! Don’t share if not sure.
