Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar yesterday lauded Semporna Enak Restaurant, one of the COVID-19 clusters, for updating the public via its social media, after its workers were found to have been infected.

“Updated information is highly welcomed as it helps not only the Ministry of Health, but also the public, in identifying the risk at the restaurant. We salute this socially responsible attitude, unlike some individuals and companies that deny they have positive cases,” the minister said at a press conference.

Eight more cases from the Semporna Enak Cluster were reported yesterday, bringing the total to 17. The public also praised the eatery for its transparency and swift response via social media, helping to clear the air on the matter.
