The Covid-19 virus has resulted in the losses of the livelihoods of many Malaysians and to make matters worse, the items of necessity which you need after being infected with the virus can add up to a hefty amount.

Recently, a Malaysian named Nurasyiqin took to Twitter to highlight how getting Covid is extremely costly.

“I haven’t properly calculated the amount, but we spent a lot on medicine, lozenges, test kits, supplements etc,” she stated.

 

“Some families might have to prioritise the money for food and just wait till the dreadful symptoms subsides,” she added.

“I can’t help but to think about how costly this pandemic is to small families.”

Meanwhile, some users highlighted that when you’re infected with Covid, you’d have to get all of your food and groceries delivered, which can be extremely costly.

“No taste and smell so cannot cook. Food had to be ordered in. Cost of groceries increased due to everything needing to be delivered,” said one user.
