Menara City One EMCO: Day 10/14 - Sanitised Sanity

| Day 23/28 of Malaysian MCO | Day 10/14 of City One EMCO |

We awoke to the sounds of wailing sirens. It was a random patrol car on its way back to IPD Dang Wangi next door.

As the morning progressed we heard no activity from the 7th floor foyer area of our condo, so we assumed that KKM won't be conducting testing today. Either that or they may start later. Some days they came as late as 3pm.

At about 11.15am we heard from as distance what sounded like a fogging machine. As it got louder, we discovered that our floor was being disinfected by whom we believe to be personnel from the Fire Department:

We are ever hopeful that with the completion of this disinfecting exercise we could be well on our way to having the EMCO lifted.

However we later received unverified reports from our friend at the condo management office (COMC) that Menara City One's lock-down might be extended until the 21st of April.

Assuming KKM manages to conclude testing on all Menara City One residents today (and assuming there are no more scum in hiding!) the 9th April, given that results will only be known in 7 days, we are still looking at 18th April for the earliest possible date for our lock-down to be lifted.

Why scum? Despite our COMC's best efforts to identify and label vacant units, there are unverified reports that some of these 'vacant' units are in fact occupied. This new development has reportedly provoked the ire of the authorities especially the PDRM who now views our COMC with some degree of suspicion.

Case in point: At about 1pm today we were again visited by a team of KKM and PDRM personnel today asking us to verify if we had been tested. We told them that we were tested two days ago (7th April). We then asked if all residents have been tested to which they answered there is quite a fair bit to go until the entire condo has been tested.

So until and unless all residents have been tested and results known (in 7 days time) we are looking at a definite extension to the lock-down of our condo.

It has been 2 days since we were PCR tested, and we expect results in 5 days' time. We ask that everyone we know to pray for our continued health, safety and well-being.
