The Mobile Swab Team under the Public Health Emergency Operation Centre (PHEOC) of the Ministry of Health (MoH) functions to assist individuals unable to make it to the static swab test centre on the grounds of limited mobility, disabilities and other difficulties. Senior Medical Officer Grade I (Dental) cum Mobile Swab Team Coordinator Dr Hajah Nurul Sa’idah binti Haji Ishak said this includes bed-ridden patients and those who are wheelchair-bound, individuals who are hard to transport in normal vehicles, and positive cases being transferred to isolation centres.
