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.
In the comments section of the videos, Malaysians expressed their concerns, while some criticised those who were there
"It doesn't matter if you've been fully vaccinated or not, this is too many people. Even if you are (fully vaccinated), please practise the SOPs."
"I received two doses of vaccine and I still tested COVID positive. Please think lah!"
"COVID enjoys looking at this."
"This is the mindset of Malaysians. When given loosened restrictions, they think they're free and that there's no more COVID. Just wait for cases to climb back to 25K a day."
"Next cluster: waterfall."
