Three female nurses with a private hospital in Sungai Petani were slapped with a RM4,000 compound fine each for violating movement restrictions yesterday.
Kuala Muda district police chief Adzil Abu Shah said police found the women, aged between 34 and 45, had handed over contributions to a friend who was undergoing home quarantine after being identified as a close contact of a Covid-19 patient.
“Investigations based on a photograph shared by a nurse, which has been making the rounds on social media, showed that they have breached the SOPs.
“Police traced the Facebook user at 9.10pm, and she admitted that she and her two friends visited a friend wearing a pink wristband in Kampung Pulau Tengah, Sungai Petani,” he said in a statement today.
The three had presented themselves at the police station.
Adzil urged the public to always comply with the movement control rules set by the National Security Council to curb the spread of Covid-19. - FMT
