PENAMPANG: Armed Forces personnel cordoned off a “kongsi” (workers’ quarters) at a construction site in K Avenue with barbed wire, Monday, after it was placed under Enhanced Movement control Order (Emco) for two weeks starting Nov. 22 due to rise in Covid-19 cases.

Penampang Police Chief DSP Mohd Haris Ibrahim said only the “rumah kongsi” areas would be locked down while the construction site is not involved. 

“There is no need to involve the construction site because all the Persons Under Investigation (PUI) do not live in the construction site but in the ‘rumah kongsi’ which is in the locality in K Avenue that has been identified.
