As the movement control order (MCO) enters its third phase, Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah is optimistic that Malaysia will recover during this MCO extension, reported NST.
Malaysia records 4,187 Covid-19 cases at the time of writing, which is over 1,000 cases lower than the calculated prediction.
According to analysts at JP Morgan, they predicted that Malaysia would reach a peak of about 6,300 cases in mid-April. However, the numbers have proven otherwise, indicating that the first and second phases of the MCO is working.
“Our target is to have less than the 6,300 cases as predicted. We are certainly doing much better,” Dr Hisham said.
“Perhaps we will have less than 5,000 cases tomorrow. I am predicting (and) hopefully we can bring the number down to 5,000.”
Dr Hisham then added that the country is now in the recovery phase, but assured that the Health Ministry is still closely monitoring the situation.
“The third phase of the MCO is important to bring the number down further,” he said.
“There is a possibility to reduce this… not only flatten the curve, but also end Covid-19 in the country. This does not only depend on the MOH but on all of us.”
This is certainly great news for our country! While the authorities are doing all they can to curb the spread of Covid-19, we also need to do our part, especially during the third phase of the MCO, to stay at home!
