COVID 19 – WHEN MOSQUES, SURAUS, VVIPS AND THE RECALCITRANT COMMUNITIES BREACH SOPS THE BATTLE IS LOST SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

There are 470,110 infected.

There are 41,889 active cases to date.

We have 1902 fatalities.

All the above numbers will change again upwards by the end of the day.

Selangor continues to lead in the head count for the infection numbers.

Today we also read about the dead being stored in containers!

And the embarrassing behavior of those expected to enforce the SOPs in religious houses, namely mosques and Suraus failing desperately by giving friendly reminders and advice rather than enforce the – Emergency (Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases)2021!

In May last year was there not a total of 927 cases which were classified as patients under investigation (PUIs) for Covid-19 were found to have epidemiological links to the Seri Petaling tabligh gathering?

Did not then our Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah state that brings the number of cases linked to the cluster to 3,347, compared to 2,375 previously.

He said this was confirmed after further investigations were conducted by the state and district health departments and offices, as well as the Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC).

Does it not mean that then the Seri Petaling cluster and sub-clusters contributed 48 per cent to the total number of Covid-19 cases in Malaysia?

Then we have another cluster of the VVIPs, the Politicians and celebrities who think they are above the law who also break the ACT.

We still have emerging threats from the foreign workers, foreigners in the country under dubious claims, our manufacturing and construction sectors, the educational institutions and that potent threat where crowds converge for purchasing meals.

It is simply shocking to see that indifference, that arrogance, that cockiness to the tenets of the Emergency (Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases 2021)!

Now with fear amounting, chaos and disarray on vaccinations, I must again appeal to the Prime Minister to please reassign all matters which includes the vaccination process under the single authoritative framework and leadership of the Ministry of Health and under Director General of Health Services Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

As lead consumer advocate with over 40 years track record I say but this that this is not the time for politicians to play political games with the lives and interests of all Malaysians.

And a double portion of love and gratitude for our front-liners at the Ministry of Health, Malaysia!
