On July 1, 2021, the Malaysian federal government announced that only food manufacturing factories and producers of daily essential needs would be allowed to operate under the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) — listing rice, white bread, sugar, cooking oil, flour, fresh milk, baby milk formula, drug and face mask producers, as permitted businesses.

BUT NOT MEDICAL GLOVES?

Malaysian glove manufacturers collectively produce and export gloves to 195 countries around the world and supplied 67 per cent of global consumption.

We urge the government to allow medical glove factories in Selangor, Malaysia to operate during the enhanced movement control order (EMCO).

Medical examination gloves, like face masks, are essential personal protective equipment (PPE) items that are highly required by countries around the world especially in this pandemic season to fight against the spread of Covid-19 and other diseases.

With the exclusion of Medical Gloves as part of the essential service, more hospitals around the world is going to face PPE shortage and more patients will be implicated. This is an illogical move by the Malaysian government!

Help us to reach the Prime Minister office and get them to reconsider!
