As the number of daily cases has once again breached the 7,000 mark, many are wondering if the Movement Control Order (MCO) and its various stages are working.
 
The brutal implementation of MCO without consideration of its adverse effect on the economic sector risks another national crisis which could result in the economy collapsing.
 
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said lockdowns are not the right approach as it will devastate the economy.

The government, perhaps, may want to consider a different strategy?
 
Othewise, how about reviewing the SOPs of MCO by having consultation with business trade groups to allow business to operate under stringent guidelines to avoid economic meltdown?
 
More businesses will either close or retrench workers as most companies especially micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that make up close to 98% of companies in the country are desperately cash strapped and cannot continue to sustain operations and employment with no business activity allowed.
 
More rakyat will be jobless if the economy is not reopened immediately (not 'as soon as possible'), that means more suffering, more suicide, more white flag...

To do list: 

1. To minimise the impact on both the industry and economy, states/areas where the cases are lower and under control should be allowed to operate without any distinction between essential and non-essential sectors. All businesses should be allowed to operate.
 
2. Please make sure business operating SOPs are no longer resulting in "Semua Orang Pening" and no more "U-turn". Certain SOPs are really confusing and all these can be avoided by simply having consultation with trade group (refer point 3).
 
3. Dear Majlis Keselamatan Negara (MKN), please consult with the business sector. I have no doubt that we will beat Covid and the economic crisis. And it will be -- so long as we stay true to our values and remember that, before we are business sector or the government, Malay, Chinese or Indian, or any of the other labels that divide us as often as define us, we are Malaysian, all with a personal stake in our country. Please talk to us!
