Malaysia has nothing to be worried about, but because we are so used to being paranoid that there is not enough food to go around, some of us are guilty of resorting to panic buying when supplies are available and sufficient.

To show just how frenzied the situation has become, a Facebook post blew up recently, documenting a group member’s experience during their visit to the local market when buying goods.

Panic Buying 1024X683 1

“The market was like a warzone. I had a feeling it might be crowded, so I went at around 10.45am only to realise that all the shops were closing.”

“I spoke to a stall owner and he mentioned that people were buying in bulk to stock up. The queue was also very long and his stall was yet to open at the time.”

Haizz. Here we go again!

In a recent statement, probably anticipating a state of panic before the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday, Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri urged Malaysians to not panic and resort to panic buying. They will be given enough time to make preparations before any measure is implemented to control the Covid-19 surge.

Further advising the public not to be easily swayed by fake news and assumptions, he also reminded them to wait for the government’s announcement.

“There is no need to go into a buying frenzy… All that has gone viral are fake news… Just wait for the government’s announcement.”

“Whatever the decision, it will not be enforced with immediate effect, time will be given (to prepare) perhaps two, three days or more.”

At the same time, Ismail Sabri also said that there might not be a total lockdown like the previous MCO. The National Security Council (NSC) will convene this Monday to discuss a more detailed standard operation procedure (SOP).

“Whatever the decision, it is in the best interests of the people, so do not panic.”

Stay tuned for more updates.
