COMMENT | In this article, I’d like to explain why Malaysia needs a very predictable (even boring) ultra-long-term Covid-19 strategy and propose how that strategy could look like.

Malaysia is tired of Covid-19 and drama. It feels like we’ve been fighting Covid-19 for years, but it’s only less than four months. Malaysia’s first Covid-19 case was Jan 25, 2020. Since then, the Pakatan Harapan government fell on Feb 24 and the Perikatan Nasional cabinet was sworn in on March 10. The movement control order (MCO) started on March 18.
