CONVERT SHAH ALAM HOSPITAL INTO A COVID HOSPITAL SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

‘Up to today there has yet to be an independent task force of members of the civil society to comprehensively look at what has gone terribly wrong in Selangor!

Why?’

CONVERT SHAH ALAM HOSPITAL INTO A COVID HOSPITAL SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

Every day the mantra is the same and it read as follows:

Covid-19 (June 24) – 5,841 new cases, 84 deaths, 30 new clusters!

With the mention that Selangor again tops the numbers with 2072 and the majority clusters were work related!

This has been going on for some time now.

Personally I know of several cases where Covid positive patients are told to come to the stadium!

Why are ambulances not sent?

I know of cases where threats of fines were issued to confirmed Covid 19 patients!

Inexplicably they were at that material time already admitted to hospital, no thanks to the screwed up system in Selangor but thanks to the involvement of several frontliners, who came to their assistance!

Threats of fine because they had not updated their Selangor App called SELangkah which runs the same portfolio of MySejahtera?

Members of their family are also alleged to be Covid positive and after allegedly threatened of again of fines have all admitted themselves in a private hospital quarantine system, financed by them, I am advised.

The earlier two are in stage 3 and 4 and these threats do nothing but irritate the community!

They are in a life and death situation and you think they are worried at your threats of fines?

Selangor is now an embarrassment!

Let us not point fingers at the federal government but ask the ‘experts in Selangor what happened?’

Up to today there has yet to be an independent task force of members of the civil society to comprehensively look at what has gone terribly wrong in Selangor!

By the way, why are we converting tertiary medical institutions into Covid 19 centers positioning those with other medical threats into risk!

And not converting more non tertiary hospitals into Covid 19 centers?

Listen to me those in Selangor!

It is time a decision is taken to immediately convert the Shah Alam Hospital into a Covid 19 center!

Time is of the essence and so far the healthcare leadership in Selangor, the vaccination delivery and matters related to workplace clusters and even that possibility of infection at the crowds that assemble in stadiums and other places say one thing – the delivery system in Selangor is simply pathetic!

The people deserve better!

I thank the Home Minister who has spent a great deal of time going to the ground, walking the lines and addressing work related cluster issues, and taking to task managements for their recalcitrant attitude of not following Covid 19 protocols and so forth!

It is time that those in slumber wake up in Selangor!

And start by converting immediately the Shah Alam hospital into a Covid 19 center!
