MCMC confirms Covid-19 case among staff

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) today confirmed that one of its employees had tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday.

In a statement, it said the employee is receiving treatment at Hospital Sungai Buloh, and is in stable condition.

It added that it had taken precautionary steps by putting her under a 14-day home quarantine since March 4, after her husband came into contact with a Covid-19 patient.

“A detailed contact tracing exercise was carried out to identify those who had direct contact with the employee,” it said.

“Those identified have been on home quarantine and will be undergoing medical screening today.”

According to the statement, all MCMC state offices began sanitation and cleaning processes on March 9.

Mandatory body temperature checks have been conducted at the lobby main entrance since Feb 28, while sanitation and cleaning work was done at the MCMC headquarters and old building on March 5 and 6.

“Operations at the MCMC headquarters, old building in Cyberjaya and state offices nationwide are not interrupted,” it said.

“The consumer complaints front desk, however, will be temporarily closed to mitigate the risk of infection via direct contact.”

Complaints can be lodged online at the MCMC portal, or via email.
