Numerous countries around the world are implementing measures to manage COVID-19 to keep their population safe. In Malaysia, the first COVID-19 case was reported on 25 January 2020. The Government took proactive actions to curb the diseases and announced the Movement Control Order (MCO) beginning 18 March 2020. The MCO, initially scheduled for two weeks, is currently in its 4th phase until 12 May 2020.
The Malaysian Government and Health Ministry is working hard to protect the rakyat of this country. The contribution and resources from various parties will help to reduce the burden on the Malaysian healthcare system, enabling healthcare professionals to concentrate on looking after the people.
In facing this unprecedented situation, many stakeholders, particularly companies, have voluntarily stepped in to assist in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak.
