PETALING JAYA: Health groups have advised Putrajaya against closing schools again after a primary school pupil in Sabah tested positive for Covid-19.

The Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) said any decision to close schools would need to be carefully evaluated, taking into consideration its impact on children’s early development.

MMA president Dr N Ganabaskaran said children would be affected academically and mentally if they could not go to school.

“However, schools should close temporarily if cases in the affected area rise exponentially,” he told FMT.
