MP SPEAKS | Covid-19 woes due to 'Sheraton Move' and ensuing political turmoil

Lim Kit Siang

Published

MP SPEAKS | Health Ministry director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said yesterday that nearly half of the Covid-19 cases in the country could be traced back to the cluster involving a religious gathering in Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur which took place between February 28 and March 1 involving participants from all over the world.

If not for the Sheraton Move and the ensuing political turmoil referred to by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in his royal address at the one-day Parliament on Monday, Malaysia would not have suffered the second wave of Covid-19 outbreak, and our total of Covid-19 confirmed cases would be in the mid-3,000s, if not below 3,000 cases, instead of nearly reaching 7,000 cases today.
