It has been a year since Malaysia started the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, based on current progress, the country seems far from ready to stand down.

This was the sentiment shared by Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah in a Facebook post, today.

“It saddens me today that we have endured one year of fighting against Covid-19 in our country.

“The end is nowhere near to be seen. However, despite the mental and physical fatigue, we all need to soldier on.

“Everyone, no matter who you are, must shoulder this responsibility to save our country together,” he said in the post, which had garnered nearly 5,000 likes as of 11.30am.

Dr Noor Hisham called on everyone to comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP).

“Wear your face mask properly, wash your hands, and maintain physical distancing.

“Stay at home if you have no urgent matters outside. Together, we can break the chain of Covid-19 transmission.

“We must be united and together… the fight will go on, InshaAllah (God willing),” he said.

The virus has killed 678 people as of noon yesterday, and new daily infections continue to hover at between 3,000 and 4,000 cases.
