PETALING JAYA: Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob said police arrested 456 individuals yesterday over movement control order-related offences. All the offenders were issued compound fines.
Most of the arrests, Ismail said, were for failing to wear face masks.
Among the other offences included activities at nightclubs and pubs, activities which made physical distancing difficult and failure to provide materials for contact tracing registration.
A total of 2,847 compliance task force teams were deployed to conduct checks on 17,021 supermarkets, restaurants, hawkers, stalls, factories, banks, government offices, as well as land, water and air transport terminals.
Ismail also said police caught 12 illegal immigrants and two smugglers yesterday under Ops Benteng.
Regarding the mandatory home quarantine, Ismail said 58,365 people who arrived through KLIA were screened for Covid-19 from July 24 to Oct 30 and were placed under quarantine.
A total of 381 tested positive and were sent to hospital for treatment, while 48,024 have been allowed to return home.
Some 9,960 people are now undergoing mandatory quarantine.
