KUALA LUMPUR (June 7): MyEG Services Bhd has launched a one-stop portal for Covid-19 screening, a service aimed at helping the government monitor and accelerate the testing of workers in Malaysia.
In a statement, MyEG said the one-stop portal serves as an alternative channel for employers in the country to register and schedule Covid-19 screening for their workforce in conjunction with the Social Security Organisation’s (Socso) Prihatin Screening Programme.
MyEG said through a partnership with a panel of approved clinics, the company will arrange for screening to be conducted on-site at employers’ premises by trained medical practitioners adhering fully to Ministry of Health (MoH) guidelines.
It said upon the completion of screening, workers will be issued a QR code-based digital certificate on a mobile application by MyEG which will serve as proof of testing recognised by the Ministry of Human Resources.
“In addition, relevant data from the one-stop portal on the screening of workers will be provided to the ministry to enable its monitoring and enforcement activities to be carried out more effectively.
“In this connection, employers whose workforce has already undergone testing are encouraged to voluntarily declare their status on the portal to ensure the ministry can be updated accordingly,” it said.
Last Friday, MyEG fell 3.88% or five sen to RM1.24, with a market capitalisation of RM4.47 billion.
