The Health Ministry is to distribute as soon as possible several units of medical equipment at the yet-to-open Cyberjaya Hospital to four hospitals in the Klang Valley to treat Covid-19 patients.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said these equipment — 42 units of ventilator, two units of mobile X-ray machines, one ultrasound unit and 20 intensive-care beds — would be sent to the Sungai Buloh Hospital, Serdang Hospital, Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang and Kuala Lumpur Hospital to treat Covid-19 patients in need of respiratory aid, especially Category 5 patients.
With the third round of movement control orders (MCO 3.0) announced, trade groups said the government must urgently announce a blueprint on how to prevent already-struggling businesses from collapsing completely.
Industries Unite co-founder Datuk David Gurupatham said many businesses have barely been surviving since the first MCO last year, and will not be able to endure another financial blow without clear government assistance.
The public is reminded to continue exercising self-discipline in carrying out preventive measures against Covid-19 as the country enters the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) tomorrow.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said business operators and customers need to maintain social distancing and good personal hygiene.
He said the police, as well as the task force teams in districts, would focus on standard operating procedure compliance at business premises and public places.
