Are you living in an area with any Covid-19 infection? You must be wondering what are the top areas with the most number of Covid-19 infection cases right? The good news is, the Health Ministry of Malaysia has just released a list (27th of March 2020) showing the Top 11 Red Zones for Covid-19 Infections in Malaysia. This list shows confirmed positive infections with at least 40 cases and above.
It is getting worse but we can stop this highly contagious Covid-19 virus!
The bad news (or good news) is, the government has appeared to be imposing ENHANCED Movement Control Order to restrict movement of people living in these areas. So far residents living in Kampong Dato' Ibrahim Majid and Bandar Baharu Dato' Ibrahim Majid in Simpang Renggam are being restricted in their own homes as these 2 areas record a surge in number of confirmed Covid-19 infections. They are NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES and food will be delivered to their doorsteps to curb the infections in the respective communities.
The top 11 RED ZONES or areas in Malaysia so far are:
1. Lembah Pantai
2. Petaling Jaya
3. Hulu Langat
5. Johor Bahru
9. Kota Bahru
10. Hilir Perak
Stay indoors and wash your hands always!
If you are staying in one of these 11 areas, or near the vicinity of any of these RED ZONES you will really need to think twice if you plan to leave your home even for a while. Public transport, groceries and hypermarkets should be avoided at all cost to reduce your risk of being infected by the Covid-19 virus. These people should also try to prepare meals on their own instead ordering food a few times daily through GrabFood and FoodPanda just to name a few. The government should really consider imposing more Enhanced MCO or FULL LOCKDOWN in these Red Zones as soon as possible in order to not put other Malaysians in danger! Isn't this what the government should be doing? Otherwise, all the efforts of others will be for nothing!
So far, WHO cannot 100% confirm whether
Covid-19 virus is airborne or not!
And of course STAY AT HOME!
Again, I repeat~please do not be IDIOTIC SELFISH BASTARDS who risk the very lives of others for your own convenience! Just because you think you are healthy and will be able to withstand the pain and suffering that come with the Covid-19 infection, does not mean that others will be as lucky as you. Some people especially those highly vulnerable groups such as senior citizens and those who are sick might be dead in just a matter of days. The worst part is, these infected people who are dying in the ICU will not be able to see their family ever again. What if they are your family? Think about it!
