PUTRAJAYA, 7 June 2020 – Business owners are advised to use the MySejahtera app, instead of their own application, to record information on visitors to their premises.
Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) secretary-general Datuk Seri Hasnol Zam Zam Ahmad said MySejahtera allows the government to control the spread of COVID-19 through a technological platform and one database system.
“If any of the customers is found to be COVID-19 positive, the Ministry of Health (MOH) will be able to trace other customers on the premises at the same date and time from the database,” he told reporters after a walkabout to monitor the use of the MySejahtera app among business owners at the Alamanda shopping centre here today.
He said more than 75% of traders in Alamanda are using the app and the number of users among visitors has also increased, adding that customers with the app do not have to write down their details.
“KPDNHEP will conduct inspections from time to time to ensure business owners use the MySejahtera app even though it is still not compulsory,” he said.
MySejahtera was developed by the government in efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 infection in Malaysia and to facilitate fast and effective action by KKM.
