Several malls in the Klang Valley have recorded positive COVID-19 cases…
Health director-general, Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah clarified on Tuesday (29 September) that shopping malls where COVID-19 positive cases have been detected can still operate as long as proper disinfection of the premises has been conducted.

According to the Malay Mail, the Health Ministry will still assess the suitability of the malls based on how risky the premises are in spreading the infectious virus.
“What we do is, for example, if there are five cases in one area, we look at the locality. We will conduct our risk assessment and ask them to do their disinfection and sanitisation process,” said DG Hisham.
He also added: “However, there is also a matter of space. If it’s a large area, we can let them operate. But if it’s a small and cramped space, we will ask them to close. For example, in a restaurant.”
