[WATCH] Emergency, pandemic or politics? Malaysians react

Some Malaysians reacted uneasily to a state of emergency that was declared Tuesday to fight a coronavirus surge that is overwhelming hospitals, that some critics charged as a bid by an unstable government to cling to power. “I feel this emergency has nothing to do with the pandemic. Maybe it was imposed because of another agenda. Maybe political.” says a Kuala Lumpur resident. – AFP, January 13, 2021.
