THE Health Ministry is still investigating the source of Covid-19 infections detected at the immigration detention centres in Semenyih and Bukit Jalil, Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said today. 

“We are investigating the source of the infection. We will look into whether the workers themselves are bringing in the infection because the detainees are not going anywhere, but it is the employees going in and out,” the director-general of health told reporters in Putrajaya today.
