As the Movement Control Order is officially enforced today, many businesses have shuttered their doors and Malaysians all across the nation are advised to stay home unless it is absolutely neessary for them to go out. Unfortunately, the severity of why the Movement Control Order was enforced seems to have been ignored by some people entirely, according to The Star.
In a report from the English daily, it has been shown that Malaysians are still taking things a little too casually as many of them are seen today (18th March 2020) relaxing at food courts in large groups, or queuing up to take-away food at food stalls. In fact, people don’t at all seem bothered by the likelihood of Covid-19 spreading as a result of close contact.
“My business is not open today. I’m just here to look at the situation,” said one person who declined to be named.
In a separate report from Malay Mail, similar scenes were also found in Subang Jaya, where people were seen casually dining in a restaurant adjacent to a wet market. When approached, waiters of the restaurant said that the diners are only eating for a moment, as they are waiting for their spouses and are elderly.
It is worth remembering that at this point, two deaths have already been reported in Malaysia as a result of the Covid-19 infection, while the number of cases have breached 600.
Public health is everyone’s responsibility, so do your part by staying home while the Movement Control Order is in effect!
