MORE DEADLY THAN WAR: COVID-19, A GLOBAL PANDEMIC; A Call for Massive Testing

Its an unfortunate (and ironic) fact that we can secure “peace” only by preparing for war. ~ JF Kennedy 

In recent days, we have seen more countries going into lockdown in an attempt to break the chain of spread of the virus. Our country Malaysia has implemented the Movement Control Order, that has seen most of nation who are not in the essential services stay at home until the end of the month. The tough question that needs to be asked at this point, is it enough?

Why NOW is the Crucial Window to Push for Massive Testing?

In the face of the global pandemic, we have to assume that we will not be able to obtain accurate history of contact from many patients, either wilfully or ignorantly concealed.

We need massive testing urgently and we cannot do it without the help of our government and people.

Massive testing also can reinforce the movement control effort as the statistics show that it would encourage people to be more willing to contain themselves at home and then perhaps we can then began to see the effectiveness of containment imposed. 

Let us stand, united, in the solidarity to save our nation and nations the world over.

“You cannot fight a fire blindfolded. And we cannot stop this pandemic if we don’t know who is infected.” ~World Health Organization Director-General, 16 March 2020
