KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 18 ― A school in Kulim, Kedah has been ordered to close after three students and one teacher tested positive for Covid-19, Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah confirmed today.

He said the infections in the school had been linked to the Tawar cluster, which saw another two new cases today.

“We have closed down the school and then we have actually screened and tested the students and also sanitisation has been done in that location. We have taken all the positive action in connection with the school.

“I hope that within a week or two we will have managed to contain the infection in that area,” he told a news conference in Putrajaya.
