COVID-19: Over 300 tabligh participants in Sabah urged to undergo health check

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Zaini Jass has called for more than 300 Sabahans who attented the tabligh gathering at the Sri Petaling Mosque (Feb 23 to March 1) to come forward and undergo health screening at nearby clinics and hospitals.

He said Sabah police had been tasked to track down more than 1,000 individuals, of which 700 were successfully identified and underwent health screening.

“The cooperation given by the tabligh members in Sabah has been great, but the problem is that we do not know where the rest of congregation members are. So I am urging them to come forward immediately for medical screening to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak.
