Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA) will provide a tracking device to the Sarawak State Disaster Management Committee (JPBN) to detect individuals with COVID-19 symptoms. Sarawak Deputy JPB chief Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said the detector would be installed in the hands of the committee to detect and map out the hot spot. The main function of this tracker device is to monitor and track any other locations or events that COVID-19 individuals have attended. He also announced that SMA will assist JPBN in digital tracking for anyone who has been identified to run quarantine at home. “In fact, digital mapping is also used by SMAs to identify the hot spot of the COVID-19 infection. This will help them to comply with the prescribed quarantine requirements. This is to prevent the virus from spreading,” he said.
