Covid hospitalisation on the rise ever since interstate travel permitted

Since the unban on interstate travel, the health minister has said there is an upward trend of Covid-19 infections leading to hospitalisation.

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin during a press conference stated that the trend is worrisome and the increase needs to be monitored closely.

The states that are involved are Sarawak, Negeri Sembilan and Selangor.

The public has urged that the government may need to rethink the ease of restrictions if cases come to a critical stage.

Sweetie Naidu believes something has to be done especially when schools are reponed.

“This will affect the school children. Please stop all your schooling plans for the year,” she added.

Instead, the concerned citizen advised that they should make better SOPs for a safer school environment next year.

Juliet Choi warned those who are eager to move about should not blame the Health Ministry for the alarming trend.

She insists that if the people want their freedom, they may be rather sacrificing their health.

“Not everyone has strong discipline and responsibility to the community,” she claimed.

Khairy has also shared that if people want to live with the virus, they need to play their part.

He said, “Our healthcare system has not collapsed, but we can’t be giving warnings only when it’s too late.”
