COVID 19 : Situation in Selangor primary schools under control - Anismah

05/12/2021 04:27 PM

SHAH ALAM, Dec 5 -- The incidence rate of COVID-19 cases among primary school pupils in Selangor is still under control, said State Education director Anismah M.Noh.

Anismah said this was  based on the percentage of primary school pupils screened every Wednesday in every school in the state.

“So far at the primary schools, only one or two have tested positive during screening each Wednesday, so there are about scores of positive cases statewide, but the situation is under control.

“Once a student is found positive, we will follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and action has been taken.

“We have about 600 primary schools in Selangor so if each school has 400 students for example, random testing will be conducted on 10 per cent of them on Wednesdays and attention will be given to pupils who seem unwell though we have advised those who are ill to stay home.” 

She said this after the 2021 Selangor State Headmaster Council (MGB) Appreciation Ceremony held at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Silver Jubilee Hall here today.

Earlier, Anismah said, the ceremony was organised in appreciation of the services of headmasters in the state who have played a big role in the education field and to honour MGB president Sukimin Juki, on his retirement.
