MIRI, March 17: A departmental store in Piasau Industrial Estate yesterday lodged a police report to deny rumours circulating on social media stating that eight of the store’s workers had tested positive for the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

The rumours claimed that due to the store’s workers infected, the premises would be closed for two weeks.



“It is absolutely not true and the claims are false, there have been no cases of this illness from any of the staff,” according to the complainant in the report.

The report was lodged around 8.40pm at Miri Central Police station (CPS) by the store’s owner. — DayakDaily
