Our Health director-general Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah advises the public to always practice self-lockdown as the recent COVID-19 cases have spiked, and our health system is now exhausted.

Some hospitals had to repurpose other parts of the hospital, like their normal wards as temporary ICUs to treat patients, while they wait for more beds with specific medical equipment to arrive.

His caption reads: “The virus is already in our community. Obey the SOPs and stay at home if there’s no important business outside. Help MOH with self-lockdown to break the chain of COVID-19 infections.”

Virus COVID-19 berada di dalam komuniti. Patuhilah SOP dan kekal duduk di rumah jika tiada urusan penting di luar....

Our frontliners risk their health and safety every day, taking care of COVID-19 patients, so the least we could do is to stay at home! 

We’re all in this together! Stay safe and stay healthy, everyone!
