KUCHING, April 1: Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng has secured the sponsorship of 1,000 face masks for frontline media members during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Wee handed over the masks to Kuching Division Journalists Association (KDJA) president Jacqueline Radoi David this morning.

In a media release, Wee said that the masks were sourced by coordinating with Dynamic Kuching team leader Eric Tay.

“Journalists and media members on the frontline of Covid-19 pandemic play vital roles in disseminating accurate information to the general public, while at the same time, putting themselves at risks,” Wee noted.
