Kota Kinabalu: MySejahtera scans and Covid-19 risk status checks will be mandatory upon entry at nightclubs and karaoke outlets when it begins operating on May 14, said Sabah’s Covid-19 spokesperson Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun. 

He said those entering nightclubs and karaoke outlets must be fully vaccinated and have received their booster dose. 

“Dancing will not be allowed for the time being,” he said in a statement, Friday. 

Sabah’s cases jumped to 78 on Friday from 57 the day earlier, which tallies with the Malaysian Health Ministry’s (MOH) early prediction that infections will increase due to the festivities, said Masidi.  

“The State recorded 21 cases higher compared to the day earlier, an increase of almost 37 per cent. 

“Stiff increase due to festivities has been predicted earlier by the MOH and would probably continue to rise until the festivities (Raya and Kaamatan) are well over. 

“The daily figures in Kota Kinabalu and districts surrounding the city will remain high or even increase until the first week of June,” he said, adding no deaths or new clusters were identified. 

Masidi said Kota Kinabalu topped the list with 21 cases, followed by Papar (16), Penampang (7), Beaufort (4), Pitas (4), Putatan (4) and Sandakan (4). 

He said a total of 12 districts recorded a rise in cases compared to nine that recorded a decrease, while nine districts did not record any new cases. 

He added that the majority of cases were mild with 76 out of 78 being category one and two infections, while two cases were recorded in category three. 

There were no category four and five infections.
