COMMENT | Malaysians opening up the economy too fast is human sacrifice, I’d say. I can’t put it any milder after learning from the case of the US and New York City as the world’s epicentre.

I have taught world history as well and the history of global infectious diseases. Learn particularly from the 1918 pandemic (the Spanish Flu which started in Kansas, US). Learn from the US today, after the protests in the Red States US. The economy can wait to recover. Lives lost prematurely can't be your policy!

Why are we risking our young and the elderly by reopening the economy now? How many spikes in cases and how many deaths do you wish to see?

Malaysia will see a spike in Covid-19 cases.
