Subang Jaya Employer Slammed For Forcing Staff To Take Ivermectin To Treat Covid-19

Twitter user Shiqnovac, who introduces himself as Ashiq, recently shared a harrowing story about how her sister had unfortunately caught Covid-19 after she was exposed to the virus at her workplace. But that’s not even the worst part, because his sister was also forced to consume Ivermectin, a drug that has not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in front of her employer as proof!

Ashiq first took to Twitter on 8 July to reveal how his sister, who is a single mother, was infected with the virus after she was forced to go to work even though there were already positive cases at her workplace in Subang Jaya. As a result, Ashiq’s younger brother who came in close contact with his sister also ended up testing positive for Covid-19.

7 July 2021 family aku buat COVID-19 swab test, turn out kakak aku ngan adik lelaki aku positive (close contact). I will blame company yg dia kerja skrg. Kakak aku ibu tunggal. Abg ipar aku meninggal dah. Keluar air mata kakak aku wehh 😭😭😭 — SHIQNOVAC (@lelakiserigala) July 7, 2021

But that’s not over. Just two days ago, Ashiq updated that his sister was asked by her boss to take several medication at work. Among them was the drug Ivermectin, which is commonly used to treat parasitic infections in animals, and is only limited for clinical trials in Malaysia as of now. His sister was even told to consume the medication right in front of her employer, leaving her with no choice but to comply.

Ingat tak kes kakak aku positive covid sebab tempat kerja tu? Harini BOSS DIA SURUH MAKAN IVERMECTIN. MAKAN DEPAN BOSS DIA K. 🤦🏻 — SHIQNOVAC (@lelakiserigala) August 4, 2021

The tweet quickly went viral, and netizens didn’t hold back on bashing the unnamed employer. But luckily, there were also some helpful users who were quick to offer advice on how Ashiq can report the incident to the Ministry of Health’s Pharmacy Services Division, the Ministry of Human Resources, or file a police report.

Meanwhile, Subang Jaya assemblyperson (ADUN) Michelle Ng Mei Sze also revealed that she had reached out to Ashiq and his sister to help them out.
