To recap, the media outlets had first highlighted the plight of Menara City One residents who were subjected to mass screenings on the night of the 24th of April. In response to this The Health Ministry Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah blamed the congestion on the convergence of both residents of Blocks A and B coming down for screening at the same time.
The residents then sent out this press statement to all media outlets to refute the claims that last night's congestion were due to the residents of both blocks coming down for screening:
"It is indeed our concern of mass gathering where social distancing not being observed. MOH have instructed the State Health Director to work closely with the police, residents and management to better improve the implementation in future. Thank you to all residents in all MCO areas and buildings for your understanding, patience and cooperation."
In another development at about 3pm a resident shared at our residents' chat group a few photos of (presumably KKM) buses parked alongside Selangor Mansion and Malayan Mansion:
Selangor Mansion has been recorded an unhealthy growth for the past 3 days:
- 22 cases reported on 23rd April
- 39 cases reported on 24th April
- 20 cases reported on 25th April
With these latest developments we now have little hope of the lock-down imposed on our condo being lifted on 28th April, since our condo (together with Selangor Mansion, Malayan Mansion and its surrounding vicinity) form part of the Masjid India area.
At 4.00pm today during his daily press conference the Health Ministry Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah announced *1 additional positive case at Menara City One which now stands at 52 cases.
*according to Dr Eliza the positive case is from the cluster of family members and housemates (estimated to be around 40 of them) of the 11 positive cases detected on 22nd April that were taken away by KKM to an undisclosed location in Setiawangsa to be quarantined. The positive case is therefore not found among the existing residents of Menara City One.
During the same press conference the Health Ministry Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah also accepted Menara City One's residents' suggestion that future Covid-19 screenings be done floor-by-floor.
