SHAH ALAM, June 5 — The Selangor’s contact tracing system SELangkah (Langkah Masuk Dengan Selamat) has registered 14 million logins since it was introduced on May 5, says Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari.
The Selangor Menteri Besar said almost 2.03 million users have utilised the platform across the Klang Valley alone.
“As the first e-tracing initiative with open platform technology, SELangkah has been used by almost 2.03 million users.
“Some 14 million check-ins have been registered and recorded in SELangkah as of today (June 5).
“This figure is recorded only across the Klang Valley, without taking into account SELangkah users in Pahang, Johor and other states that have recorded wide usage,” he said in a statement today.
Amirudin said as of June 3, more than 40,000 business communities and premises owners, from shopping malls to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), have participated in the SELangkah initiative.
He said the state government had also merged the SELangkah system with the MySejahtera application developed by the Federal administration to widen the reach and scope in contact tracing.
“SELangkah’s reach and scope are present without compare in Malaysia, and we are pleased to share the fruits of our labour with the Health Ministry, for the welfare of the public as well as to safeguard the health of our nation.
“We hope that our commitment via SELangkah would facilitate the frontliners in the contact tracing process while also ensuring economic activities would run smoothly during the Covid-19 pandemic,” he added.
