PUTRAJAYA: The cause of the spread of the new COVID-19 cluster, the Cheras Apartment cluster, is likely to be due to home visits before and during Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said the actual cause which has resulted in the cluster was still being investigated.

Elaborating on the cluster he said, the first case was detected through screening of students of a tahfiz centre, which was conducted in collaboration with the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) and the Health Ministry (MOH).

“However, investigations showed that none of the students, teachers or staff members at the centre had history of attending the tabligh rally in Seri Petaling.

“So far there are six cases from this cluster, three are residents at the apartment while three others are not living in the vicinity, “ he told the daily COVID-19 media conference here today.
