A TARGETED COVID-19 screening exercise on Selangor residents with a history of visiting Sabah by Selcare Clinic, a state-owned subsidiary detected three positive cases.

Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari posted on his Twitter page said the positive cases were found through screening on two individuals from Gombak and one from Subang.

“Since the targeted screening was conducted from last Sunday until yesterday, a total of 573 individuals have been screened. Those who were tested positive for COVID-19 had been handed over to the Selangor Health Department for treatment and contact tracking,” he said.

Amirudin said the targeted screening would continue for another two days before focusing on the Klang sub-district which was under Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).
