Hold Your Horses! Malaysians, ‘Balik Kampung’ Might Have To Wait

Always be on your toes peopleee!



With a recent spike in COVID cases, The Ministry Of Health (MOH) has proposed that the lifting for interstate travel be postponed. This is due to multiple complaints within the government quarters to postpone the lifting of the travel ban.

Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa has also not ruled out the possibility of closing down Ramadhan bazaars if the sites are hit by Covid-19 infections. This warning came out after Malaysia was hit with an alarming number of cases over the past few days. A Twitter user expressed his dismay with Ramadhan bazaars this year observing the current situation:



This situation also came as a warning to everyone that we could be hit with the fourth wave of COVID infections if we let our guard down for a moment. This, especially after photos and videos of non-compliance to SOPs in Ramadhan bazaars were shared.

The photo above seems to show the entrance to a bazaar in Bayan Lepas, Penang, causing the issue of social distancing to come into question. National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin expressed worry over the possible spike. In light of the gravity of the news, netizens have been flooding social media with well wishes, urging each other to remain strong during these tough times! Malaysians are willing to forego celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri in their hometowns to keep Covid-19 at bay.



Another Twitter user thought realistically about the whole interstate travel issue, indicating that disallowing it would be for the best:



Let us continue to do our parts in curbing the spread of COVID-19 by staying home as much as possible, avoiding the 3C’s (crowded places, confined spaces and closed conversations) and keeping our spirits high! We can stop this if we work together!
