The Management also informed that all relevant employees and business partners including frontliners who have had close contacts with the positive cases have been requested to undergo Covid-19 screening.

The Management also encouraged those who might have physical or direct close contact with the telco promoters during the roadshow period to go for tests as a precautionary measure.
