KUCHING, Apr 28: Kota Samarahan Municipal Council (MPKS) chairman Datuk Peter Minos regrets that a few people who knew that they were infected with Covid-19 have brought the virus to Samarahan.

He said this group of people should have been mindful of others.

“It is most regrettable that a few people, especially those early ones, who knew or had high suspicion of being affected by Covid-19, to have brought the virus to Samarahan,” he wrote in a WhatsApp message.


Minos admitted that it was regrettable that Samarahan has more than 40 cases and thus declared a red zone, a given its name as high education hub and also housing a medical centre.

He also lamented that the few people who deliberately defied the movement control order (MCO) had brought a bad name to Samarahan.

“The government is trying very, very hard to ensure the safety of the nation and yet a few people do not understand or purposely don’t want thus very simple matter and this is really regrettable,” he asserted.

He said that this had resulted in medical teams, council, police and army, having to work day and night to carry out roadblocks and disinfection exercises with to prevent further spread of Covid-19.

He hoped that the people work together to prevent further spread of the virus and prayed that Covid-19 be “dead and buried” end of next month. —DayakDaily
