ARAU: The Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail (pix) called on the people to refrain from spreading rumours following the implementation of the Targeted Enhanced Movement Control Order (TEMCO) in two villages in Kuala Sanglang, as this will only cause panic among the community.

Tuanku Syed Putra Faizuddin, who is also Perlis Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs) president said, everyone should act rational and must first refer to reliable sources for information, namely, the National Security Council (MKN) and the Health Ministry (MOH).

“When there are too many fake news going around, it will be an additional burden to the government to calm the situation and will also disrupt efforts to conduct screening on those involved.

“As such, it is more appropriate if the public extend their cooperation to the frontline workers and help residents who may be affected following the implementation of TEMCO,“ he said in a statement today.

Earlier, the Perlis Raja Muda attended the Hijrah Minda programme at the Al-Abrar Kubang Gajah Mosque in Arau, where MAIPs in collaboration with the State Social Welfare Department (JKM) distributed 300 food aid packs to residents affected by the TEMCO implementation at Kampung Tanah Timbul and Kampung Kuala Sanglang.

The Perlis government has implemented TEMCO for 28 days starting at 10pm on Saturday in Kampung Kuala Sanglang and Kampung Tanah Timbul.

As of yesterday, Perlis recorded 30 positive Covid-19 cases with 11 being cases from the Sivagangga PUI Cluster which started in Napoh, Kubang Pasu, Kedah. — Bernama
