Malaysians should follow the example of Taiwan in dealing successfully with coronvirus pandemic without the enforcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO), Security Senior Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said today in a press conference.

He said Taiwan has not implemented any lockdown or Movement Order control (MCO) to curb COVID-19 but the number of positive cases is in control and the death percentage is low.

Taiwan has reported just 432 cases and six deaths, while 324 were recovered, (as of today Sunday, May3), since January 21.

As such Taiwan is now considered to be one of the few places in the world to have kept the pandemic controlled.

Taiwan rewarded yesterday Health Minister Chen Shih-chung for the island’s success in containing the disease.

Ismail refers to Taiwan while urging Malaysians to practice social distancing and personal hygiene and follow SOP when reopening businesses and going to work tomorrow.

“The people have taken precautionary actions and practice high self-regulation besides social distancing of one meter in public places, wearing masks and self hygiene that have been their compulsory norms,” Ismail reiterated.

On the COVID-19 situation Ismail said, medical experts expect COVID-19 vaccine to be ready by early 2021. As long as the vaccine has not been found in a big scale, the pandemic continues to threaten human lives.-Malaysia World News
