Common sense required, not army patrols

A police officer advising road users to return home at a road block in Jalan Tun HS Lee, Kuala Lumpur, yesterday. The police are already on the job of safeguarding Malaysians' welfare since the Covid-19 disease appeared in Malaysia on January 24. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Nazir Sufari, March 20, 2020.

THREE days into restricting movements across Malaysia and not doing a good job at it, the Muhyiddin Yassin administration plans to put boots on the ground to help the police control the situation.

This is all wrong and totally unnecessary.

  • Agreed. The bungling politicians now resort to a sledgehammer to kill a fly. The people are now getting it. Its after all the bungling fools who had confused everyone as to the seriousness of the situation. Today, I see far less cars on the road than yesterday, meaning more people are getting it. Getting army on the street just belittles the effort of the police thus far

  • Cant expect people to follow rules when the government themselves dont follow or adhere to the very own laws that they have set in place. Circumstances aside, this is a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black. Cant fix themselves but want to fix others. And the blame falls on the citizens? Bunch of idiots

  • Everything done so far lacks the efficiency of the two (health Minister and DPM) of the defunct previous PH government shown by way of bringing Malaysians back from Wuhan, China. If only they had been allowed to continue this mess could have been avoided. How many more trial and errors must we face before things can st become better?
