Make sure you don’t let random people into your house, even those who claim to be from the Ministry of Health (MOH)!

Minister of Defence, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri said in his live press conference yesterday (15 June) that MOH does not conduct door-to-door swab tests unless you are in the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) area. 

He also warned people to be wary of those claiming to be from MOH should they come knocking on your doors unexpectedly, “If there are people who come to your homes, claiming to be from the ministry, and they want to do a swab test on you, do not let them in and lodge a police report. This way, the authorities can take action against these unscrupulous people.”

He added that such people could be scammers or criminals disguising as Ministry of Health personnel. 

“Unless you are in the EMCO area, health authorities will not do this,” he said, as reported by The Star. 

Be careful and do not let strangers into your homes, especially if you’re living alone. Report to the authorities immediately if some random MOH personnel suddenly comes to your house!
