Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) has cleaned and disinfected eight of the markets and community. The city council had been actively sanitising up to three locations a day.
The work is being carried out by MBPJ’s Health Department with the help of the state Fire and Rescue Department. A total of 76 officers were involved in the process.
“At least seven people take part in each sanitisation exercise which starts as early as 3am. Our team is out Monday to Friday covering numerous locations, mainly places frequented by large numbers of people, ” said a MBPJ spokesperson.
Among the market locations were Jalan Othman, Section 14, Section 17/2 and Section 17/27, Taman Megah, Kampung Cempaka as well as the SS9 Seri Setia market.
MBPJ also disinfected the halls in Kota Damansara at Section 7/28 and Section 7/1, which are currently being used by armed forces personnel during the movement control order (MCO).
“The city council’s headquarters have also been sanitised as a sizeable number of officers are still working there as they fall under the essential services category, ” added the spokesperson.
The sanitisation process would continue until the end of the MCO as and when required, he said.
