Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar yesterday advised those who often cross the border to Miri for their dental treatment to seek services from local dental centres or the Jerudong Park Medical Centre in case of an emergency.

This was shared by the minister during a press conference in response to the concerns from patients who routinely cross the border for treatment and have not been able to conduct their monthly checkups following the closure of the borders.

The minister added that the closure of borders and travel restrictions as well as the Movement Control Order (MCO) are set up by the Malaysian Government.

“Until they lift the MCO, we cannot cross the border. For brace wearers, emergency cases would entail poking braces, loosening braces and others. It is important for them to seek professional help from approved clinics,” said the minister.
