The Coid-19 pandemic will exacerbate existing humanitarian crises and impact vulnerable populations in profound ways. If unchecked, in the weeks to come, it could easily be the biggest existential threat we’ve faced since the Spanish flu of 1920. Going forward, any set of actions we take today will have consequences and will be equally eternalized in history in the years to come. I’m not an expert by any means but I thought I would take some time today and write an op-ed on how I think governments the world over should rise to the occasion in resolving this contagion.

The Malaysian Health Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba’s advice to Malaysians to drink warm water to “flush” the corona virus down to the stomach, where digestive acids will kill any virus was anusing to say the least.

Each time when a country faces a crisis like we are now, there is an equal chance that it would be blessed with some leaders endowed with outstanding leadership or saddled with some gaffe prone ones. So far, Malaysia has not seen any of the former category but unfortunately, there are 2 federal ministers of the latter type. Hopefully, there won’t be any more. 2 is quite enough to get us nervous.

TWO critical questions seem to be troubling the public. First, can the appointment of the prime minister by the king be challenged? Second, does such a challenge amount to disrespect for the king and the institution of the monarchy? Our courts have answered both these questions. Yes, to the first. No, to the second. Let me elaborate.

Well it’s here. We are taking it seriously, and we are self-isolating as much as possible. Not everyone, of course, but we can see the sense behind instructions and doing our best.  My husband and I went to the doc yesterday and had a pneumococcal injection which was thought to be a good thing – my son in Barcelona is letting self-isolation go to his head and is suffering from a tact-failure: ‘you are old, mother, so you must not go out into large gatherings, and you need to…blah blah blah.’  He’s talking sense of course, but liking bossing his parents about too much.

I was amazed by Covid19 patient no. 33. He has detailed his deep appreciation of the high quality of medical care he has received from our medical personnel as a corona virus patient. He has given names of medical personnel too. All too often, we criticise, take things for granted but don’t appreciate. Please his article below.

Culture Club CULTURE is a complicated thing. It means different things to different people, and everyone  has their own. None of which is any more or less important than another.

Even though the Cabinet had been announced, the political war that has started in February 2020 will continue. “Back door/front door government” is a mute-point for ordinary Malaysians because, while the politicians fight for power, many for money and some for political survival, Malaysians know they are the victims selfish politicians and very bad, probably unprecedented economic situation, aggravated by many deepening global uncertainties with no light in the tunnel in the foreseeable future.

Whilst Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) welcomes the recent temporary ban by China on the hunting, sale, transportation and export of all wild animals in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, a more lasting solution is needed to prevent another repeat of such outbreaks, not only in China but in all countries.

The year was 2015. Police officers descended upon the office of a now-defunct Malaysian news portal, allegedly because of a “seditious” news report published by the said portal. The police wanted access to emails and servers. They questioned the editors and wanted to know who was responsible for publishing the report. They wanted to arrest and detain those responsible. When questioned, the response was that these were “orders from the top”.
