The Sarawak government today announced that inter-division travel within Sarawak is not encouraged, particularly heading outside of Kuching.
Deputy Chief Minister, Douglas Uggah, in a press conference today said that travel should only be done under three conditions as seen below:
- Death of a family member
- Movement of essential services
- Official work purposes
In the question and answer session, Douglas also stated that inter-division travel is not banned, but strongly discouraged, particularly between Kuching to other divisions.
Kuching currently has hit 38 Covid-19 cases, excluding cases deemed as ‘imported cases’.
It has the most number of cases in Sarawak to date.
The count puts Kuching in the yellow zone for Covid-19 cases, only shy of two more to turn the division into red.
