Malaysia recorded its first case of COVID-19 on 24 January 2020 with a stable number of reported cases until March 2020, where the cases spike and the country was hardest hit in South East Asia at that time.
In order to curb the transmission and better managed the clusters, Malaysia imposed a nationwide Movement Control Order (MCO) on 18 March 2020. The MCO together with targeted screening which have successfully slowed the spread of COVID-19 pandemic. By June 2020, Malaysia had successfully flattened the curve, MCO was lifted and replaced with Recovery MCO (RMCO), which is still effective until 31 December 2020. However, this success of flattening the curve did came with a price: the country lost RM2.4bil (USD572mil) daily during these 3 months of MCO being imposed, and in total losses incurred was RM63bil. Needless to say, low income and medium income earners, daily wagers, street food hawkers, were some of those who was badly impacted by this MCO and the pandemic.
Before the country and the people could recover, all of sudden a third wave of COVID-19 pandemic hit the country. The main culprit this time was the state of Sabah (in East Malaysia) general election which was held on 26 September 2020. Total COVID-19 cases were below 10,000 as at August 2020, but within two months it has multiplied to more than 41,000 cases and increasing, especially after the state election.
To curb and to flatten the curve again the government imposed a nationwide conditional lockdown, which is known as Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) except in 4 states. On top of CMCO, many cities and areas were also placed under Enhanced MCO (EMCO) which is a total lockdown.
Under CMCO, education sector (kindergartens, schools, colleges, universities) was ordered to close, many government departments and private sectors have been ordered to work from home. Some non-essential industries have to shut down. Tourism and aviation industries are already paralyzed, the hotels will continue to experience low occupancy rates due to the travel restriction.
Thousands of people are still unable to pay for basic necessities including rent, utilities, and food. With fears of hunger, and certain hopelessness on the rise for this already vulnerable population, they need us now more than ever.
