As the Ramadan season is fast approaching, many rulers have raised differing views and concerns as to whether the Ramadan bazaars should continue, given the current crucial Covid-19 situation in our country. While the proposal of a Ramadan ‘drive-thru’ seemed to provide somewhat of a solution to some states, others would rather be safe than sorry.

SULTAN JOHOR: BAZAR RAMADAN PANDU LALU TIDAK SESUAI DI JOHORDYMM Sultan Johor Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan…

The concept of a drive-thru Ramadan is not possible in Johor as the risk of increasing the spread of Covid-19 is too strong, says the state’s Sultan, Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar.

“It will be harder to reduce close contact – and if there is a new cluster, how are going to control this virus?” questioned the leader in a statement made on his official Facebook page, adding that this would only cause more problems for authorities: “I am worried that if drive-through Ramadan bazaars are held, there will be traffic congestion that would further burden enforcement teams on duty.”

His Majesty continued to urge Johorians to be patient as the nation enters its third phase of the Movement Control Order (MCO).

“Please be patient and do not oppose the MCO. Make sure that you only go out if required. I have been staying in and not gone anywhere, so I understand how uncomfortable it is not going through a normal daily routine,” assured the state leader.

Do you think other states should follow suit? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
