No, Malaysia. The world doesn’t comprise of over 500 countries, and our Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba has made that abundantly clear in his latest response yesterday (20th April 2020) over the matter.

During a video call between UMNO president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and the Health Minister himself, he said “500 countries” which has since caught nationwide attention given its erroneous mistake.

500 negara

Timbalan Menteri Kesihatan semakin menonjol di mata rakyat kerana melanggar perintah PKP.Tidak mahu tertewas, Menteri Kesihatan muncul dengan jurus istimewa, mengumumkan negara di dunia ini ada 500 buah!Kah! Kah! Kah! Live di 500 buah negara! Pandai pandai dia je tambah 300 lagi negara kat dunia ni.

However, he has since clarified the matter, telling The Star in a WhatsApp message that he had misspoke, and that he did not actually mean 500 countries.

“I mistakenly said 500 countries – what I meant was 500 participants from all around the world,” he said.

But of course, Malaysian netizens who were quick to catch on to this huge slip-up have already taken to social media to mock the remark mercilessly.

This new ‘500 countries’ remark comes just after a month ago, when the Health Minister made another fallacious remark, saying that warm water could flush the coronavirus down to the stomach and be killed by digestive acids.

What do you guys think of this development?
