Recently, MOH reported that there were 35 new cases in total from that area alone. Considering that the Penang Second Bridge is also involved in Mukim 12, it is only reasonable to restrict the high traffic area. Meanwhile, further information regarding the SOP will be given by the KKM soon.

However, we know that PKPB generally means that social gatherings should be avoided and economic sectors will be allowed to operate accordingly. Of course, it will be best if locals can try to stay indoors as much as they could. Stay safe friends!
