  • Tell also to your politikus friends and oppositions to stop conduct all sort of community event as you guys are one of the main super spreaders as well. My last question is why not NOW to conduct a full lock down in Selangor why later??? Still thinking of economics is it?? economics for who as those ordinary folks are already in the limbo and out of jobs that you are still thinking for the businesses that are effected well the ones down the road has already effected long before you were toying with this idea. Its not tomorrow the call and to made the decision is NOW Adham and being a doctor you of all person should know better.

  • What does a full lockdown mean? And for how long? Are all factories and businesses closed or only the non-food ones? What about IT, stationery, plumbing, roof, electricity repair and supply services which are not on the essential list? Are businesses allowed to furlough employees? or retrench them? Is Govt subsidizing the salaries or allowing pay cuts? What about work that requires essential communication with banks and other government agencies, which if not done will undo or scupper transactions or result in failed transactions or disputes? How will this be handled? Is Government providing high level data bandwidth for all families for work and education purposes? Will government be giving out free food and groceries for all the B40 and M40 families that are affected as they dont have savings to rely on? Will government provide employees who have lost their jobs due to the lockdown with welfare payments so that they have a roof over their heads and food on the table?
