Even the doctors are puzzled with the SOP woi

Health experts have questioned the rationale behind the recent changes in Covid-19 SOPs. Dr Lim Kuan Joo and Dr Steven Chow of the Malaysian Federation of Private Medical Practitioners’ Associations said it made little sense to extend lockdowns in some states while allowing interstate travel. They were particularly concerned about the spread of the virus from Sabah and were puzzled by the decision to exempt those travelling from the state to the peninsula from the quarantine rule.

Malaysian Medics International chairman Dr Vikkineshwaran Siva Subramaniam said the public would be less confused if the government were more systematic and transparent with its SOP announcements. “Instead of randomly announcing restrictions and lifting rules, it might be more effective if the government could put in a little more effort to educate people and explain the changes,” he said. “However, he also said allowing more travellers per vehicle would make little difference to people’s exposure to the virus. ” Last Friday, the government announced it was lifting the conditional movement control order for all states except Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Sabah.

Please lah everybody, stay safe and be safe!
