All Students Entering Hostels in Sabah Have To Undergo Screening After 18 Test Positive in 2 Days
Sabah state minister, Masidi Manjun, has declared that all students entering hostels will be required to undergo screening.

Muar MP, Syed Saddiq, took to Twitter to share the news with the caption, “That’s what happens when you don’t listen to the #SuaraPelajar. Don’t blame the rakyat when a #KlusterPelajar happens. Correct this before it is too late.”
Previously, the hashtag #SuaraPelajar gained traction online when students took to Twitter to share their plight, particularly SPM students who were supposed to take their exams last year. A few netizens questioned the necessity of re-opening schools during the pandemic, especially in states that are also facing unpredictable flooding situations. Others questioned why authorities could not postpone or cancel SPM and take a similar approach to their international counterparts, IGCSE and GCSE.
As of now, schools are still scheduled to re-open tomorrow (20 January).
