PUTRAJAYA, Feb 6 ― The Ministry of Transport today directed all public transport operators to undertake precautionary measures and increase the level of cleanliness to curb the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) infection.

Its minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said at a post-Cabinet meeting yesterday, all agencies under the ministry had been ordered to provide hand sanitisers as well as ensure the cleanliness of public transport terminals. 

“All parties have a responsibility to prevent coronavirus. So far, the ministry has received good cooperation from all quarters,” he told reporters after the ministry’s monthly assembly and Chinese New Year meet-and-greet here.

He said privately run public transport terminals were also recommended to initiate the similar moves.
