Despite the escalating COVID-19 cases, there are still a lot of Malaysians out there who are taking the matter lightly.
If you are one of those people, well, consider yourself warned.
Some Malaysians have been misbehaving
The police are set to increase checks and monitoring SOPs in public areas in light of the rise in COVID-19 cases across the country.
Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador told Bernama
that authorities have found that some Malaysians have been complacent, and not adhering to the SOPs set by the government.
Therefore, the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) will step up checks to ensure that all Malaysians adhere to the guidelines.
Those found to be disobeying the set guidelines will face the music, said Abdul Hamid.
“Taking into consideration the rise in COVID-19 positive cases, the police would like to remind Malaysians to always be self-disciplined and to follow the set SOP.
“In conjunction with the year-end holidays and festivities, many have taken the opportunity to visit their hometowns, travel and host social events and gatherings,” he was quoted as saying.
Abdul Hamid also asked Malaysian to avoid the 3C’s -- crowds, confined spaces and close conversations -- to stop the virus from spreading further.
Stay safe, everyone! Remember to mind the SOPs, OK?
