IPOH, Nov 19 — Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu today clarified that Indera Mulia Stadium here, which has been turned into a quarantine centre, is only to accommodate Covid-19 patients who are asymptomatic.
However, Ahmad Faizal said that the low-risk centre has yet to be gazetted for quarantine purposes by the National Security Council (NSC).
“We came up with this centre to reduce the burden on hospitals. We have about 160 beds and they are for Covid-19 positive patients who show no symptoms.
“However, the centre has yet to open. The state government is ready to cooperate with the Health Ministry if NSC agrees to it,” he told a press conference at the State Secretariat Building here.
