Looking at the recent COVID-19 situation in Malaysia, the Malaysia National Crisis Preparedness and Response Center (CPRC) has reactivated the COVID-19 Low-Risk Quarantine and Treatment Center (PKRC) at the UiTM Terengganu, Kuala Terengganu campus( also known as Chendering), one of the East Coast Education Hub. This is a precautionary measure to face the issue of increasing cases following the expansion of screening and increase in cases in Terengganu.
PKRC UiTM Terengganu (Chendering) was opened in phases with a maximum capacity of 1,128 beds after review and site visit by National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA). The first phase began when PKRC UiTM Chendering started operating on 21st January 2021 and the second phase took place on 12th May 2021. This PKRC is used to place COVID-19 patients in categories 1 & 2 who are not suitable to undergo home isolation after being screened by the COVID-19 Assessment Center (CAC) team.
This was made possible with the full support from the UiTM Terengganu Staff and students, The Rector, Prof Ts Dr Mazidah Puteh and The Deputy Rector, Assoc Prof Wan Dorishah Wan Abdul Manan. UiTM Terengganu is very proud to be together with the nation to support and fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
