It’s time for frontliners to have a break, onus now on public to curb Covid-19
PUTRAJAYA: The time has come for every Malaysian to hold the responsibility to curb the Covid-19 infection in the country and give a chance for the frontliners to have a little, but most deserved, break.
Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said if the people were to play their part in complying with the standard operating procedures (SOP) issued by the Ministry of Health (MOH), by frequently wash their hands, wearing a face mask, checking their body temperature and observing social distancing at all times, the burden shouldered by the frontliners might be reduced.
“For months, they have stepped forward and worked tirelessly as the frontliners. Well, slowly but surely, after this, every member of the public may have to take the responsibility to ensure that the virus will not continue to spread.
He said this during a 30-minute video conference with representatives of the country’s frontliners who have been battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
The video conference was participated by representatives from the Health Ministry, Malaysian Armed Forces, Royal Malaysia Police, Immigration Department, Fire and Rescue Department, Civil Defence Force, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, and the People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela).
During the video conference, Muhyiddin also expressed his thanks and appreciation to the contributions and roles played by all the frontliners in fighting the pandemic and wished them Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir dan Batin. – Bernama
