STOP WASTING TIME WITH SCREENING MOVE TO VACCINATION SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

The greatest folly Malaysia has made is put politicians on the forefront of the covid-19 pandemic response instead of Malaysia’s Ministry of Health!

As a result we have seen the abuse, misuse, the double-talk, the BS narrative politicians are known for, questions raise whose felt needs and interests is been addressed at each tier, corporate or the masses, be they the lock-down, with queue-jumping, collapse of an  app which instead of being an assistance was a nightmare?

Let me remind these politicians you are confirmed an idiot the moment you tell trained and tested medical personnel and doctors to train themselves to give vaccines!

It is like telling a Queen’s Counsel whether he is aware of Criminal Law which is a year one subject at law school!

I just cannot understand the rationale why we are wasting valuable time conducting screenings when what we should be addressing is the massive vaccination of over 80 per cent of our citizenry!

What do you expect to gain from this screenings?

Except allow the figures to jump?

Some may not be picked during screenings but may exhibit the conditions later or even pick it up during these massive screenings process?

Let us not forget that Malaysia reported 8,209 new infections on Thursday, taking the cumulative caseload to nearly 600,000. With 103 virus-related deaths, pandemic fatalities rose to 3,096.

We are also facing the rise of workplace clusters, which have recorded a high number of new Covid-19 cases, besides the festive and interstate clusters!

A statement also made by Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

Are we not disturbed that a total of 287 workplace clusters involving 17,087 cases were recorded from April 1 until yesterday, with 233 clusters involving 16,785 cases still active.

That the three States recording the highest number of workplace clusters during the period are Selangor with 74 clusters (25.7%), Johor with 53 clusters (18.4%) and Penang with 31 clusters (10.8%).

That the manufacturing sector is identified as the highest contributor to the cluster compared to other sub-categories with 132 clusters (46%), followed by the service sector with 57 clusters (20%)?

The other sub-categories are the public administration cluster and the construction cluster.

This is a time the nation has to act and act decisively by going into vaccine mode led by members of our Ministry of Health and not be outsourced to politicians and other unqualified individuals, corporate and business interest and clusters!
