Misinformation instigated crowding at Grand Seasons Hotel PPV

Rumah Prihatin said that a big crowd had assembled at the Grand Seasons Hotel vaccination facility (PPV) after being misled into believing that it provided walk-in vaccination for non-Malaysians.

According to the report, the crowd refused to leave the area even after police requests to do so, leading to a long line of individuals crammed together.

In a statement, it said that it was due to a misconception and news that Rumah Prihatin offers a walk-in inoculation service for non-citizens, while walk-in vaccines for foreigners are available at the Bukit Jalil vaccination center (PPV). As a result, an unforeseen “rush crowd” emerged, beyond management and law enforcement’s expectations.

At first, the Rumah Prihatin worked with the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) in order to disperse the group, but they refused to leave even after the orders and the warnings given. The problem was resolved with the assistance of PDRM and DBKL.
