On Wednesday (7 October) Health director-general Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah announced two new clusters, one of which is the Bah Puchong cluster that apparently stemmed from a group of people who visited a relative who was supposed to be in quarantine. 

In a statement, he said: “This new cluster has been identified in the Petaling District, Selangor and the Larut, Matang and Selama District and Kinta District, Perak.”

“All three cases were admitted into Sungai Buloh Hospital. The screening of close contacts was done and two additional confirmed COVID-19 cases were detected in the Larut, Matang, and Selama District and Kinta District,” he added, as reported by The Malaysian Insight. 

YB Ng Sze Han, member of the Kinrara state assemblymen and Selangor exco assured the public in a tweet that they don’t have to worry.

In the tweet, he said: “Cluster Bah Puchong doesn’t mean that Puchong has a serious COVID-19 outbreak. This cluster is named “Bah Puchong” because someone who lives in Puchong came back from Sabah.”

So, please be responsible, Malaysians! We still have a long way to go before we get rid of this virus for good.
