As a reminder to the citizens of Malaysia to not take the SOP lightly. There are several real incidents whereby an individual who violated the SOP had later caused a new Covid-19 cluster to appear.
The Kedah State Health Department (JKN Kedah) shared a true story about how a man from Kedah misused his employee’s work letter to travel interstate to celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri with his family in Kedah.
Unfortunately, he brought the virus back and several of his family members are now tested positive with Covid-19.
JKN Kedah added that the investigations shows that the family had ignored the SOP implemented for Hari Raya Aidilfitri and continued with the gathering.
They added that the family members are now undergoing treatment at the hospital as a result of his actions.
Making reference to the story above, JKN Kedah wishes to remind the public to always comply with the SOP and to be responsible citizens. In addition, it is our duty to keep our family members safe from the virus.
“Can you imagine if the government allowed people to visit each other on Hari Raya? Would the number of cases increase even more?” JKN Kedah share their thoughts.
“To the ones who always continue to abide by the SOP, you are very responsible citizens. You are also a responsible child to your family.”
“Our sacrifice today is for a better future, a future without Covid-19” JKN Kedah added.
