Regarding the recent arrest of 20 partygoers at a hotel, Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar said that mass gatherings should be avoided while the nation is still coping with the COVID-19 outbreak. “Such gatherings are highly prohibited, given the close proximity of 20 people in the confined space of a hotel room, involving alcoholic beverages,” he said during a press conference at the Ministry of Health’s (MoH) Al-‘Afiah Hall.
