A large crowd was recently spotted at Sungai Pisang, Kuala Lumpur, in videos that were believed to have been taken during Phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP)

Several users posted TikToks yesterday, 13 September, that have gone viral showing a mass group of people at the waterfall, without any physical distancing.

According to standard operating procedures (SOPs) announced on Friday, 10 September, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that interdistrict travelling and outdoor sports and recreation activities are allowed for those fully vaccinated.

However, the public has still been urged to continue to abide by the COVID-19 SOPs.
