Commenting on the lower number of participants during the third phase of the screenings, he said most of the residents from targeted areas have done their screenings during the second phase and now the community is focusing more on vaccination.

“The community is more focused on getting their dose after their screenings, hence most of them are taking the approach to ‘self-lockdown’ at their homes due to the movement control order (MCO).

“The community screening programme will continue this week in Kajang constituency tomorrow, followed by Hulu Kelang and Bukit Antarabangsa constituencies on Sunday, all from 9am to 6pm.
