KUCHING, March 11: A total of 760 people from 186 families in three villages were affected by the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) implemented in Kampung Tringgus.

State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah. in a press statement today said he is pleased with the arrangements done by all quarters to make the CMCO as comfortable as possible for those involved.

“I was made to understand that Serembu assemblyman Miro Simuh is ensuring that the requirements of the people are well taken care of.

“This CMCO is a very necessary measure taken to protect people’s health and life. It is not to cause inconveniences or hardships to them,” he said.

Meanwhile, Uggah, who is also deputy chief minister, revealed folks in Kampung Tringgus are also allowed to go out to harvest their rice in the paddy fields during the CMCO implementation.

However, he said, it is only allowed under strict compliance of all the standard operating procedures (SOPs) laid out by SDMC.

“We do not want them to be infected or for them to spread it to others. We have seen how the virus has spread very fast from place to place in the last few weeks. We must all work together to put an end to the spread,” he added.

The 14-days CMCO implementation in Kampung Tringgus started on March 8 after some 54 positive Covid-19 cases were detected in the village.

On another note, Uggah calls for the population in the Bau district to register themselves for the vaccination program.

According to him, currently, more than 20,000 (40 per cent) people in Bau district has already registered to be vaccinated.

“We are appealing to the others yet to do so to come forward so that a proper arrangement can be made. We do not want people to be left out,” he said. –DayakDaily.
