Movement Control Order Day One
For the first time in our life, we have to stay at home for the Movement Control Order to contain the Covid-19 virus outbreak. This is the first time in our history we have Movement Control Order not because of national security but Covid-19 virus outbreak.
The Movement Control Order starts from 18 to 31 March 2020 for fourteen days period. All schools and nurseries are closed except essential services like includes water, electricity, energy, telecommunications, postal, transportation, irrigation, oil, gas, broadcasting, finance, banking, health, pharmacy, fire, prison, port, airport, safety, defense, cleaning and retail are open.
Today is the first day of Movement Control Order and I am taking care of the boys as mummy is working in essential services.
The restaurants and coffee shops are open for take away and things looking very orderly at our usual coffee shop. The food stalls are in operation today and they removed all the chairs so no one can sit in. There are people busy trying to take away food and most people are with masks.
Saying that, there are also people still sits in and dine in at various parts of Malaysia. There are always people who do not take things seriously during this time. Ignorance and stubborn of the people are the major culprits of the spread of the Covid-19 virus outbreak.
Remember this, if you are eating at the coffee shops, you will get fined. If things out of control, they might close down the food stalls and restaurants and you have to cook your own food. Please take note that not everyone stays with their family, there are people who rented a room and do not have access to kitchen. Be understanding to others and if you get the virus, you will bring more problems to yourself and your family.
The main purpose of the Movement Control Order is to make sure everyone stays at home with least interactive between one and another. Remember this, this Covid-19 virus infects everyone regardless of race and gender. If the Covid-19 virus outbreak worsened, there could be another lengthy extension of Movement Control Order. Everyone’s life hood is affected by this Covid-19 virus outbreak and Movement Control Order so please be sensible and have some responsibility. Be safe our fellow Malaysians! There are still 13 days to come!
