A pilgrim who just returned from her Umrah pilgrimage described the use of a digital detector on the wristbands of those undergoing home quarantine as an excellent approach to ensure that the order is carefully followed.

Jamilah Muhammad Jamil, 48, a staff member at a Selangor government office, said the gadget was attached to her wristband shortly after she landed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) yesterday and was waterproof, allowing her to conduct ablution and take a bath easily.

I have also been provided with another tracking device that needs to be placed in the middle of the house.

The device cannot be moved as it has been set based on my address, and it is able to detect and send alerts if the wearer leaves his or her house,” she said.

Although the COVID-19 screening test she had yesterday at the KLIA came back negative, Jamilah stated she is still obliged to take a second swab test on Dec 31 before being permitted to remove the device.

On December 25, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin declared that from this week, all individuals completing the seven-day compulsory quarantine after their Umrah pilgrimage would be required to wear a digital detecting device.

He said that the decision was made after 30 of the 49 new cases of the Omicron variant found in Malaysia between Thursday and Friday were imported from Saudi Arabia.
