KUCHING, Jan 30: The public has been reminded to be disciplined and not to be complacent and relax about adhering to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) of Covid-19.
Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng during his live Facebook session today warned that the battle against Covid-19 is yet to be over.
While waiting for the arrival of Covid-19 vaccine, Wee emphasised that it is the most critical time now than ever to ensure that the Covid-19 situation in Sarawak is under control by complying with the SOP instead of having a relaxing attitude towards the coronavirus situation in Sarawak.
“Given the vaccine shot is not enough to win the war against Covid-19.
“The frontliners have done their best.
“What we need now is for the public to practice a high level of discipline and also cooperate with the city council,” he said during his live Facebook session called Shall Wee Talk? today.
Wee added the length of the Movement Control Order (MCO) and the Conditional Movement Control (CMCO) were aimed at measuring the compliance rate of the SOP by the public and how the Covid-19 situation in the state can be improved.
He explained that if CMCO were turned into MCO, there is a requirement for the public to comply more with the SOP and not take the easy way out.
“We must not lose the war against Covid-19.
“We need to ensure that the Covid-19 is under control and subsequently revitalise the economy.
“If both cannot be achieved, we are in a dire state,” he added.
Wee asserted that the concerns of the public every day are the Covid-19 situation, flood and so forth.
Thus, he reminded some quarters not to play politics and spread unnecessary rumours.
Wee believed that once the Covid-19 situation is under control, only then the economy can be improved.
Hence, he pointed out that it is important to fight Covid-19 first before putting an effort to revive the economy.
Wee called on everyone to stay united and be vigilant in the effort to win the war against Covid-19. —DayakDaily
