The memorandum of understanding on confidence-supply-reform (CSR) between the ninth Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri and Pakatan Harapan is the most important political document in the nation’s history since the drafting of the Malaysian Constitution and Rukun Negara.

Lets co-operate to end the longest Covid-19 wave in the world causing two million Covid-19 cases and some 22,000 Covid-19 deaths in Malaysia instead of spending the next 10 to 18 month on political intrigues, plots and counterplots, though any new 10th Prime Minister in such circumstances will not be Anwar Ibrahim

The 21-month Covid-19 pandemic in Malaysia is equivalent to seven “911 tragedies” in the United States in human lives lost – when will the pandemic in Malaysia end?

(Versi BM)

America is marking the 20th anniversary of the terrible “911” Tragedy.

For Malaysia, the 21-month Covid-19 pandemic is equivalent to seven “911” tragedies in the United States in human lives lost – and Malaysians have a right to ask: When will the Covid-19 pandemic in Malaysia end? Read the rest of this entry »

Malaysia’s Sept. 11 tragedy – we have beaten USA not only in “daily Covid-19 cases per million population” but also in “daily Covid-19 deaths per million population”

Yesterday, America marked the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy – but unnoticed, Malaysia was having its own Sept. 11 tragedy yesterday.

This was Malaysia catastrophic handling of the 21-month war against the Covid-19 pandemic to the extent that yesterday, we beat the USA not only in “daily Covid-19 cases per million population”, we also beat USA in “daily Covid-19 deaths per million population”. Read the rest of this entry »

With a shocking 592 Covid-19 deaths yesterday, Malaysia is now in a worse stage than the United States in its worst period during the Covid-19 pandemic when it registered a peak of 4,489 Covid-19 daily deaths in the last week of the Trump presidency on January 12, 2021

Now I can understand the long delay in posting yesterday’s Covid-19 data on the Worldometer website, which would give among other things, the day’s latest Covid-19 death figures by about 7 pm daily but it was not available yesterday even after some three hours later.

I woke up this morning, like all Malaysians, to utter shock to find that the daily Covid-19 death figure for Malaysia yesterday was an unbelievable figure of 592 deaths, which placed Malaysia as the world’s Top No. 4th country in daily Covid-19 deaths yesterday – after Russia (796 Covid-19 deaths), Mexico (699 deaths) and Brazil (635), beating United States, India and United Kingdom, the world’s top three countries with the most cumulative total of Covid-19 cases.

Premature for Khairy to talk about Covid-19 becoming endemic in October when Covid-19 death rates are still high

It is premature for the new Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, to talk about Covid-19 becoming endemic in Malaysia at the end of October when Covid-19 death rates are still high despite a high vaccination rate.

While Malaysia should move away from the “Zero Covid” policy to ”Live with Covid” policy, we must strike a proper balancing act to ensure that while there is not a total end to Covid-19, there is also a resumption of normal, pre-pandemic economic and social life. Read the rest of this entry »

Is a historic breakthrough of a confidence-supply-reform agreement between the government and opposition in Parliament for the nation to single-mindedly focus on winning the war against the Covid-19 pandemic until the next general election an impossible goal?

Former Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin said that 2022 is the year of recovery for Malaysia.

This is like many of his statements and pronouncements when he was the eighth Prime Minister which had remained empty statements which had marked his disastrous premiership.

Health Ministry’s new Covid-19 website most welcome but Khairy has still to honour his undertaking to give more details about the high Brought-in-Dead (BID) Covid-19 deaths

(Versi BM)

The Heath Ministry’s new Covid-19 website is most welcome but the Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin had still to honour his undertaking in Kota Kinabalu on Monday to give more details about the high Brought-in-Dead (BID) Covid-19 deaths.

Khairy had said in Kota Kinabalu on Monday that the high number of Covid-19 deaths reported daily did not reflect the actual number of fresh deaths that occur within 24 hours, as the numbers were sometimes piled up over several days as the authorities need time to confirm the cause of death, especially in places like the Klang Valley.

Malaysia set new records in daily new Covid-19 cases and Covid-19 deaths and Khairy disappoints Malaysians as he failed to keep to his word to announce more details of high Covid-19 deaths and high BID Covid-19 deaths

(Versi BM)

Yesterday, Malaysia set two new records breaking the 1.9 million mark for cumulative total of Covid-19 cases with 1,900,467 cases and breaking the 19,000-mark for Covid-19 deaths with a total of 19,163 deaths.

My worst fears will come true – when we celebrate our 58th Malaysia Day in a week’s time on Sept. 16, we would have passed the two million mark for cumulative total of Covid-19 cases as well as passed the 20,000-mark for total Covid-19 deaths. Read the rest of this entry »

Warning bells should be sounding that we are on the wrong track in the war against Covid-19 pandemic as a week after the new government, we are not only having more daily new Covid-19 cases than Indonesia, we are having more daily Covid-19 deaths than India

Warning signals should be sounding that we are on the wrong track in the war against Covid-19 pandemic as a week after the new government, as we are not only having more daily new Covid-19 cases than Indonesia, we are having more daily Covid-19 deaths than India.

Indonesia has more than eight times the population of Malaysia, yet for nineteen consecutive days, Malaysia is having more daily Covid-19 cases than Malaysia. Yesterday, we had 20,396 Covid-19 cases and Indonesia has 5,403 cases – about a quarter of that of Malaysia.

Four reasons why Khairy should not be complacent about ability to turn the tide of defeat in the 20-month war against Covid-19 pandemic and ending the world’s longest Covid-19 wave since last September

There are at least four reasons why the new Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin should not be complacent about the ability to turn the tide of defeat in the 20-month war against the Covid-19 pandemic and ending what is probably the world’s longest Covid wave since last September.

I want Khairy to succeed just as all Malaysians want to see Malaysia win the war against the Covid-19 pandemic and live down our infamy for the past year as one of the worst-performing nations in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic with the unacceptable high number of Covid-19 cases and deaths.

This is not fault-finding but to find ways to improve our handling of the Covid-19 pandemic so as to win the war against it instead of being one of the worst-performing nations in the world in the Covid-19 pandemic in the past year.

Khairy has to address the problem of escalating daily new cases and record-high deaths in the midst of increasing vaccination rates

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Khairy Jamaluddin, has started on the right note as the new Health Minister, promising to be transparent and to provide more detailed Covid-19 data to the public while addressing several pressing problems and initiatives to intensify the Covid-19 operations by allocating more vaccines, manpower and medical equipment to five states – Sabah, Johor, Kedah, Penang, and Kelantan – which are recording a rapid rise in daily Covid-19 cases.

However, there is one urgent problem which Khairy has omitted in his maiden media conference as Health Minister – the escalating daily new Covid-19 cases and record-high deaths in the midst of increasing vaccination rates. Read the rest of this entry »

Khairy should do what Indonesia has done to reduce the daily new Covid-19 cases from the peak of 56,757 cases on 15th July to low four-digit of 5,436 cases yesterday

I will be more modest in my expectations and not as ambitious as the new Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri, who said in his maiden National Day address last night that he hoped that the celebrations this year will be the last under the cloud of Covid-19 pandemic.

I do not expect Covid-19 pandemic to disappear next National Day in 12 months’ time but I do expect Malaysia to turn the tide of defeat in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic and end probably the longest year-long Covid-19 wave in the world which started last September during the Sabah state general election and to gain control of the Covid-19 pandemic situation.
