According to Supt Collin, the suspects were caught for not observing social distancing at the two stalls.

“The 19 customers, including 13 women, were also brought to the Sibujaya police station,” he added.

Then later all of them were issued with a RM1,000 fine.

Also, the compliance team gave six summonses for not wearing helmets and other traffic violations to motorcyclists.

▼ Netizens said that many shops and restaurants are not following the SOPs and the authorities are not taking enough actions for those who are disobeying the rules.

All of us are responsible to adhere to SOP set by the government, only by doing this we will be able to break the chain for Covid-19. #beatCovid-19 #kitajagakita
