Malaysia will be in lockdown from March 18
to March 31, 2020, to deal with the Covid-19 situation. Officially it’s a Movement Control Order (MCO) but it’s effectively a lockdown like some other countries. Malaysians can read the details on local news so I am not getting into that.
Instead, I want to thank the medical staff – including some friends – and other folks who work hard to combat the pandemic around the world. Also thanks to those who will keep the country running during the lockdown. It is not a choice in some cases but a heartfelt appreciation nonetheless.
I hope everyone will be disciplined and thoughtful during the period. Restrict our travel as much as possible and follow the orders. Most of us have people we care who are vulnerable, and frankly nobody is really safe from the virus. Let’s make a collective effort to curb the spread.
There are people who will be more affected, mentally and financially etc. Hopefully the government can provide proper assistance. I will donate a bit to help those in need. Kindly contribute in your own ways if you are capable to do so. The options should become clearer after a few days.
So, thank you, stay safe and good luck. Malaysians, everyone, everywhere.
Update – The MCO has been extended at least until April 14, not going to update about this anymore. The situation around the world also worsen since I first posted the thoughts. My condolences, may the souls rest in peace. Others, stay strong, keep on fighting, and best wishes.
