The Ministry of Health (MoH) encouraged premises, not only shops but also government buildings, to download the QR code as a quarter of the country’s population has already downloading the BruHealth app.

This was revealed by Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar during yesterday’s press conference at the Al-‘Afiah Hall of the MoH. The minister added that once 80 to 90 per cent of the country’s population is registered, it will help the MoH should there be another outbreak.

Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham said downloading the QR code for premises may become mandatory in the near future as the current situation concerning the spread of COVID-19 outside may be prolonged until the coming year.

On Friday prayers which will commence on May 29, the minister explained that the most important assessment is the one done on the day itself. Individuals can make a booking at the mosque they wish to go to from Monday (about five days prior) and once the booking is made, they must carry out the self-assessment.

“What is important is the assessment done on Friday itself. For example, if their code is yellow, they will not be allowed to go for the time being during this Phase 1,” said the minister.

Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham encouraged government buildings to download the QR code, especially those that regularly deal with the public.

‘“If a ministry has various different departments under it, they are able to register for a QR code of their own for each department. It is not limited to one QR code per ministry,” said the minister.
