A giggling gaggle of Doraemon ministers

COMMENT | Housing and Local Council Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin has been receiving a lot of mockery and brickbats ever since she chose the Jalan Othman wet market in my neighbourhood to show her presence in the front line battling the deadly Covid-19.

Why the negativity? In this trying time, we should be supportive. Give her a break.

It is comforting to know that, after her visit, patrons to the market could safely run/rub their hands on the encircling road surfaces, and not get contaminated.

But minister, what about subsequent days, and a stray contaminated person spitting or running his hand on the road? The management of my condo disinfects the lifts and common doors and areas four times a day. I suggest you do the same for the roads around the market during its daily operating hours for the duration of the lockdown...
