CORONAVIRUS | The restrictions announced by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to combat Covid-19 is not a lockdown, but a form of social distancing that can "flatten the epidemic curve", said former health minister Dzulkefly Ahmad

"This is nothing like a lockdown at all. A lockdown is when you can't leave your home, there's a total curfew, you can't go out to buy food," Dzulkefly (photo) told Malaysiakini in an immediate reaction to the prime minister's speech tonight.
