People wanted to sell food, as if the government might not give them enough financial aid if they stayed at home. Already the government's national debt has increased after spending more aid to keep people and businesses from descending into poverty and joblessness.

The government also allowed workplaces to continue operating to keep people employed, even though they contribute to almost half of daily Covid cases. People on twitter are proposing for a total lockdown like last year, even though this will make more people poorer.

I fear that if a months-long lockdown will ensue, Malaysia will crash into poverty due to heavy debt.

note:
Malaysia and China are "reciprocal countries", meaning that Malaysian citizens can get vaccinated for free on Chinese soil, and vice versa.

It's quite upsetting that the news in Malaysia hasn't told us this yet. Any sources?

The government should send Malaysians to China allow Malaysians to visit China so we can get vaccinated sooner. I'm also waiting for the next shipment of Chinese vaccines so our country will get vaccinated faster, since America and other countries are not shipping more vaccines.

My country is going to hell.

1. From May 10 onwards, all inter-district travel is banned until June 6. The government might lift it earlier if things improve within 2 weeks. Fortunately, officials cannot host gatherings either.

2. In the Klang Valley, beds in hospitals have passed 70 percent capacity.

3. The government has introduced the HIDE system, a system that indicates which places (like shopping malls, train stations, and factories) have a higher risk of becoming Covid hotspots. Because suspected hotspots will be closed down for three days, associations representing shopping malls and retail industries objected to this system because it can drive away customers.

4. From Monday onwards, all Ramadhan and Aidilfitri bazaars will be closed in MCO areas.

5. Four new Covid variants have been detected in Malaysia: British (Sandakan, Lorong Megah Jaya), Nigerian, South African (5 clusters), and Indian (one foreigner).

1. Several malls have been shut down due to being potential hotspots. During their three days of quarantine, the malls will be sanitised. These include One Utama, KLCC Suria, and Sunway Pyramid.

2. Over 500 vehicles were ordered to turn back by the police at the border to Kelantan. The drivers were planning to return to Kelantan to celebrate Aidilfitri.

3. People have having a black market of oxygen concentrators in India. These concentrators are needed for hospitals.

4. India has approved the usage of a drug known as 2-DG. This drug lessens dependence on oxygen for severe and critical Covid patients, and helps patients recover faster. It accumulates in cells infected by Covid, and prevents virus growth and synthesis. It is to be taken orally as a powder.

I hope this one can be effective against the resistant Indian strain.

1. Over 2000 appointments for the AstraZenaca vaccine have been postponed due to severe Covid cases in KL and Selangor.

2. For those who registered for AstraZenaca, they only had to show the vaccination appointment from their MySejahtera phone app when they are stopped by police officers. However, they only allow people who had appointments on their phone, and only when they are given a date by the authorities.

3. BioNTech is planning to build a factory for vaccines in Singapore. It will start working in 2023.

4. 180,000 doses of Sinovac will be ready this week, followed by another 450,000 doses in the next.

5. Since the West is being slow, and India is currently in deep trouble, China and Russia look like available alternatives — countries who cannot afford vaccines should ask for these two nations for help.

1. The entire country of Malaysia is placed under MCO from May 12 until June 7, as cases are still in 3000s. Under the lockdown:

* All schools, academies, and unis are closed, except childcare centres and kindergartens
* Only 3 people can use a car
* All employers must use Work From Home policy with less than 30% of management staff
* All economic sectors can still work during MCO, including the notorious factories and workplaces that became Covid hotspots.

Meanwhile, Malaysian users are rightfully upset that their own fellow people have contributed to the Covid crisis, so they made a new hashtag instead of #KerajaanGagal (the government has failed) — #RakyatGagal (the people have failed).

2. Australia has struck an agreement with AstraZenaca to produce its vaccines there. Once they're done, they will be distributed to Australians for free, then to Pacific countries and Southeast Asia.

1. According to Indian and Australian newspapers, a supposed leaked document suggests the virus was being used as a bioweapon to weaken potential rivals. On the other hand, the Chinese government stated that the document was from a book about how countries (like the US) use bioweapons.

2. Nearly 1.3 million vials of Sinovac have finished their trials and will be ready for public use. It is also the first vaccine being manufactured in Malaysia.
