KUALA SELANGOR, April 21 (Bernama) – The Health Ministry’s enforcement team must be more tactical in curbing the activities of foreign vendors selling food with questionable hygiene, said Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Dzulkefly Ahmad.

He said MOH enforcement officials should identify the modus operandi of these foreign traders so that more effective measures can be taken if necessary.

He said the issue of foreign street food vendors plying their trade in popular spots in the city, which has recently gained attention, can serve as a lesson on the importance of taking more effective measures before conducting on-site inspections.

“We went there to take action but MOH officers discovered that they were no longer at the location,” he said when met after the Aidilfitri open house for the Kuala Selangor Parliamentary Constituency here today.

He was asked about the ministry’s actions regarding a viral video showing the activities of foreign street food vendors that has raised concerns among netizens.

Dr. Dzulkefly said the ministry has also identified their modus operandi and will tighten surveillance to stop the activities.

A 23-second video on the activities of foreign street food vendors believed to be operating near Al-Bukhary Mosque in Jalan Hang Tuah, Kuala Lumpur recently went viral on social media, sparking reactions from netizens, who were dissatisfied with the perceived supervision. of the authorities’ enforcement system.

In another development, Dr Dzulkefly said MOH will work with the Ministry of Education to revise the standard operating procedure (SOP) for outdoor activities in schools to prevent untoward incidents.

He said the incident involving the death of a 14-year-old male student in Negeri Sembilan during a cross-country activity organized by his school on April 19 necessitates a comprehensive SOP to serve as a guideline for all parties in the future.
