As with all medical conditions, treating the Covid-19 coronavirus is a costly affair that can be a burden for families who may not have the necessary finances in place to treat it. This is especially true for those who are breadwinners of their families, if they ever fall victim to the Covid-19 coronavirus, which requires a 14-day quarantine. But fortunately, our new federal government has already taken steps to help ease the burden of those affected by Covid-19, according to Malaysiakini and New Straits Times.
Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassi launched the Covid-19 fund yesterday (11th March 2020), while also pledging over RM1 million in government funds in order to help out those whose lives have been affected by the virus. There is key emphasis on helping those whose work has been interrupted due to quarantine measures required in relation to the Covid-19 infections.
“Your sincere donation is (much) welcomed. Whatever we collect will be channeled to those deserving assistance,” he said during a press conference.
As of Wednesday evening (11th March 2020), there are now over 149 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Malaysia.
Every little bit helps, so we definitely hope that this fund will go to those who need it the most!
