  • UK caught Covid19 a month later than Malaysia already hundreds positive and a dozen deaths. Probably 10k unknown cos not tested. Malaysia still about 200 plus and only 2 died? UK government allocated £350b cos economy standstill. Read Guardian for global news, US 1 trillion dollars cos recession. Malaysia?

  • Why are these idiots still touring and sight seeing? And those people complaining the closed parks are still not taking the virus seriously. No difference than the stupid ex pm who didn’t think closing the border such a good idea then.

  • I crossed the Pahang-Selangor border 4 minutes before the borders are going to close.

    I still see busses and people going to the East Coast of malaysia which is mostly peoples home villages.Most of them were students and for me its bad.Because they are going to bring the virus to the east coast of malaysia and also at 1 :25 AM the 18 of march,the bus terminal is still filled with students waiting for a bus to the east coast and north of malaysia
