SEREMBAN, June 29 — The Negeri Sembilan government has proposed that factories with positive COVID-19 cases detected should be closed for 14 days to ensure industrial clusters in the state are brought under control.
Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun said the proposal has been submitted to enforcement agencies to reduce the number of infections in the state.
“We are requesting the relevant parties to consider the proposal and take further action so that the industrial clusters can be brought under control to break the pandemic chain,” he said in an online press conference after chairing the weekly state executive council meeting, today.
Meanwhile, Aminuddin said the Paroi Youth and Sports Complex (KOMBES) and Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Rembau have been converted into vaccination centres (PPVs) and would open next Monday.
He said the opening of the PPVs would speed up vaccination to achieve the target of administering 20,000 vaccine shots a day.
Meanwhile, he said a total of 655,865 individuals in the state had registered for COVID-19 vaccination and out of the number, 177,793 individuals had received the first dose while 90,203 recipients had completed both doses of the vaccine so far.
Today, Negeri Sembilan recorded the second highest daily COVID-19 positive cases in the country with 644 infections while Selangor has highest daily cases with 2,836 transmissions.
