" Villagers of Kampung Bintang here were carrying on with their lives as usual yesterday despite some being confined to their homes following the death of a man to the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome-coronavirus (MERS-CoV) on Sunday.
Villager Mustapha Ismail, 63, said the authorities did not place any restrictions on villagers and they were free to roam in the village.
"Only those who had direct contact with the deceased were ordered to be confined to their homes so that they can be monitored."
Mustapha said the villagers were ordered to undergo a check-up at a temporary health counter set up in the village."
