Next two weeks are crucial for Malaysia.
If we take adequate precaution and break the chain then we can tide the Corona virus Outbreak else we have a big problem in hand especially for the elderly population
So far so good. Malaysia has done well so far in its fight to contain Corona Virus. Now we are in stage 3 in which Virus spreads through social contacts & in social gatherings.
This is most critical stage & number of confirmed cases spread exponentially everyday like what happened in Italy between last week of February & second week of March. From 300 to 10,000. If Malaysia is not able to manage this stage for next 3 to 4 weeks then we could have confirmed cases not in hundred but in thousands . This next one month is crucial. That is why most events & public gatherings have been closed till 15th April in Selangor.
Just because schools are closed avoid getting that compulsive travel & Holiday bug. Holidays will come next year too why try your luck with Corona specially with children. Marriage functions, Birthday parties etc can wait. Don’t try your luck & that bravado that nothing will happen to me. Next 30 days will be most crucial in medical History of Malaysia. Take all precautions while at home & while outside for any important work. Precaution is not panic.
Be a responsible citizen by following & educating others to remain careful for next one month.
