So, some very pandai
Malaysians are writing down Superman, Batman and even Badang when asked for their names for contact tracing purposes.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri, however, reminded Malaysians to be truthful as the information was crucial in fighting the COVID-19 outbreak.
“There is no need to write down your addresses and MyKad numbers when you enter business premises.
"However, some have resorted to writing their names as Badang, Superman and Batman and putting fake phone numbers."
“If there is a case, it would make contact tracing very difficult, ” said Ismail as reported by The Star
He said that this could be the reason why some outlets were asking for MyKad numbers.
While there are concerns about outlets misusing information, your true name and phone number could be critical if someone you had close contact with gets COVID-19.
The information on your last whereabouts could help authorities determine who has potentially been exposed and allow them to conduct active case detection.
Whatever it is, COVID-19 is something that the community will have to live with for some time.
Let's be responsible.
If you go out, be truthful about you whereabouts and unless you have a cape and a cool bike like this dude
, don't even think of writing your name as Batman.
