SARAWAK will step up enforcement of Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP), following lapses during the Valentine’s Day, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said.
He added that Sarawak Police Commissioner Datuk Aidi Ismail would present new strategies to enhance security on Monday.
Uggah, who is also Sarawak State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) chairman said the People’s Volunteer Corps (RELA), Civil Defense Force (APM), army and Village Security Committee (JKKK) would also be roped in to beef up security, Dayak Daily reported.
“As mentioned before, after the Valentine night’s case, I went around Kuching to check on the enforcement and we knew that there is a need to review the enforcement in Kuching,” he added.
He also warned Sarawakians to adhere to the SOP, failing which stricter rules could be enforced.
“I hope it is not necessary and we will not come to this stage. As I kept saying over and over, please keep to the SOP (standard operating procedures), clean your hands at all times and adopt social distancing.
“Follow the SOP strictly not because you are afraid of getting compounded or arrested by the police, but please do this for your own health, your family, our community and Sarawak so that all of us can return to our normal life,” Uggah added.
