Oh my Milo ais...
While all eyes are on Malaysia due to the political turmoil that's currently taking over our country, we have a new update regarding the on-going COVID-19 outbreak.
In a new statement recently released by the Health Ministry, the government has advised Malaysian to be cautious and wary of where they obtain their ice from as there is a possibility that the Novel Coronavirus can spread to liquids.
Buy only from trusted sources
“Buyers are advised to purchase their ice from ice licensed ice factories only,” the statement reads.
There are currently 156 licensed ice factories to date, with 16 more reportedly pending approval.
Under the Food Regulations Act 1985, the ice produced must be made using treated water and also go through anti-bacterial treatment by using technologies such as ion radiation, ultraviolet, and many more.
Following this update, perhaps we should reduce our ice intake or maybe resort to making our own ice until we’re sure it's safe?
Better safe than sorry, guys.
