Pharmaniaga Group Managing Director, Datuk Farshila Emran, in a statement said, its wholly owned subsidiary, Pharmaniaga Logistics Sdn Bhd (PLSB), will continue to provide timely door-to-door service delivery of medicines, even to the remotest areas in the country during the nationwide movement control order period.
“This is an unprecedented situation and we prepared ourselves by conducting simulation of various scenarios for PLSB to operate in ensuring the pharmaceutical supplies will reach all government hospitals and clinics within the stipulated delivery period.
“We are working closely with the Ministry of Health in monitoring the situation and be rest assured, we will continue to provide our best service for the public, consistent with our tagline Passion for Patients,” she said.
Farshila said Pharmaniaga has also intensified efforts to safeguard its employees from the spread of COVID-19, including conduct daily body temperature checks, restrict visitation and perform scheduled sanitisation at all its offices and plants.
She urged the public to stay committed in observing the movement control order to further curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
“We would like to advise the public to take precautionary measures by practising good personal hygiene.
“Let us stand united to give our full support to the government’s efforts, as well as appreciate our unsung heroes, the medical practitioners who selflessly dedicated their lives to combat this pandemic,” she added.
On March 16, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin declared that Malaysia will be placed under nationwide movement control order starting today until March 31, 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The order entails comprehensive restriction on movements and public gatherings throughout the country including religious, sports, social and cultural activities.
