PETALING JAYA: A former deputy minister tonight questioned the rationale of allowing factories to operate during a total lockdown although a majority of Covid-19 clusters are coming from these sites.

Hannah Yeoh said clusters linked to factories will not end if the National Security Council does not revise SOPs

“For how long do we remain in total lockdown – children, restaurants, shops – when factories can remain open? Come on!,” Yeoh said in a tweet directed at senior ministers Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Azmin Ali.

The former deputy women, family and community development minister also wondered if ministers studied the data or just “made announcements”.

Today alone, 14 of the 19 Covid-19 clusters were related to the workplace. Eleven were linked to factories.

Yesterday, health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah revealed that a total of 1,328 workplace clusters have been detected, involving 147,040 Covid-19 cases. Over 95,000 cases were linked to factories.
