Malaysia had been consistently recording a 5-digit number of new Covid-19 cases and it seems that some of us just do not learn the importance of the standard operating procedures (SOP).
Yesterday (30 July), there was a durian giveaway that happened in Parit Buntar, Perak and this giveaway had led to a huge crowd gathering under the flyover at Hotel Damai just for the sake of the free durians.
From the photos that were circulated on social media, huge crowds can be seen lining up for the free durians, at the same time ignoring the social distancing rule under the SOP.
This is not the first time something like this had happened and netizens had condemned both the organiser and those who gathered at the scene just for the free durians.
In the comment section, netizen said “You get to eat free durian today but you won’t get a chance to eat it again next year.”
Another netizen commented “Congratulations to the organiser and those who received the free durian, you have successfully caused others to be remain lock up at home.”
Meanwhile, a netizen commented sarcastically “Come on people, let’s work together to increase Covid-19 numbers in the Kerian district. We are still peanuts compared to other places at the moment.”
Malaysians had been suffering from the restrictions since the Covid-19 outbreak in March last year. However, some of us are still stubborn and completely disregard the SOP.
Obviously, this is why the cases in Malaysia kept growing with more and more new Covid-19 clusters discovered.
