I warned the Muhyiddin-Azmin Ali backdoor gov’t to exclude areas which have no cases from the MCO

MCO, or no MCO, the Muhyiddin-Azmin Ali backdoor gov’t has to address its illegitimacy.

Only legitimate gov’t can preside over the economy.

Luckily, no lockdown was imposed when HiV emerged. We would still be in lockdown after 40 years.

The statement by Muhyiddin Yassin on the extension of the Movement Control Order (MCO) was stupid. He should give the bad news first i.e. the extension and explain how it would help.

There’s no explanation on how the extension would help deal with the virus and whether it would prevent yet another MCO.

According to data, Malaysia registered a death rate on the road of about 23 per 100,000 population.

Based on this statistic against the estimated population of 30 million Malaysians, about 7,000 to 8,000 people in the country die on the roads every year.

7,500÷12 = 625 per month or 20 a day.

Studies show that deaths on the roads are a major disruptive factor on families and cost the economy heavily.

Corona virus in Malaysia killed 19 people over nine days.

Premature death, no matter what the reason, has the same socio-economic impact.

It’s disruptive on the families affected and has enormous cost on the economy.

Why impose the MCO in areas that have no cases?

I warned the Muhyiddin-Azmin Ali backdoor gov’t to exclude areas which have no cases from the MCO.

What about Sabah and Sarawak? They are not in the same category as Malaya.

The supporting details and the grandmother’s stories can come below.

Again, those areas which have no case should be excluded from the Movement Control Order.

That will give an incentive to those under MCO to come out of it as soon as possible.

I agree with Trump about getting the economy moving again.

When a Corona virus case appears in an area which was previously free, we will know where these “Fear Allah, not Corona virus” Tabligh MFs are.

Then, the new area can be included in the MCO.

What if the MCO doesn’t turn up even one case in an area that’s free of the virus?

The MCO can be extended to an area, previously free of the virus, only when the first case appears.

We can even impose a lockdown.

We can cross the bridge when we come to it so that the economy can continue working.

6 Locations Identified As Covid-19 Red Zones; 4 In Kuala Lumpur

Six locations in Malaysia (Malaya) are considered Covid-19 red zones.

Four of the aforementioned are in the Klang Valley alone.

Petaling Jaya (96 cases)

Lembah Pantai (90 cases)

Hulu Langat (75 cases)

Johor Bahru (52 cases)

Seremban (42 cases)

Titiwangsa (40 cases)

It also appears that the Covid-19 red zones list may increase soon with the following:

Gombak (38 cases)
Penang (34 cases)
Kota Bahru (29 cases)
Kluang (26 cases)
Kepong (24 cases)
Klang (23 cases)
Batu Pahat (23 cases)
Kuala Muda (23 cases)
Kinta (22 cases)

Protection . . .

The best way to control the consciousness is to focus on the here and now, on this moment, we can cross the bridge — whether in the here and now or hereafter — when we come to it.

If there’s no bridge in the hereafter, it doesn’t matter, we won’t know.

It’s being in control of the consciousness that’s the key to everything.

I am not superstitious or religious.

Perhaps you can keep on the safe side and try reciting mantra for protection from “evil”.

Many recite the rosary daily. It doesn’t make me feel uncomfortable. It has a calming effect.

I don’t recite the rosary. I just listen when others are reciting it.

Hindus claim their mantra, Om and Gayatri Mantra, work. You can listen to the chanting or chant. Chanting is in Sanskrit and must be done correctly and go on for either 77 or 108 times. Not sure.

I am not sure whether the mantra works. I tried listening to Gayatri Mantra and felt uncomfortable after a few minutes. So, I stopped listening.

I stand corrected. The Hindu mantra may be about losing control of one’s brain and merging the brain, mind, emotions, memories and consciousness with the “universal consciousness”, for want of a better term.

I prefer to remain in control of my faculties, not surrender them to mantra, and the mullahs vaateverr.

Mantra in Sanskrit actually means magic.

Miracle (Jesus)

Magic

Genius (IQ tests, Einstein)

Daydreaming (Einstein)

Intelligence (the ability to learn from mistakes)

Below average intelligence

I believe others have their Mantra too. I hear the mosques chanting the same thing over and over again for quite some time.

It doesn’t affect me. But I believe it affects others and strips them of the I, ego and individualism by affecting the faculties.

It’s brainwashing.

US’ COVID-19 Death Rate Is Far Below Rates In Italy And Spain – OpEd

Extract from the link . . .

Death Is a More Reliable Measure of Impact than Total Cases

Moreover, problems with data collection suggest measuring by death rate rather than total cases is more useful.

Tests are more likely to be performed on people who seek medical care than on people who have only minor symptoms, or none at all.

This bias in favor of measuring mostly those with the worst symptoms was identified some time ago, and inflates the “case fatality rate.”

As more cases become known, so long as total deaths do not grow at least as fast, the fatality rate decreases.

As with data collection in criminology, however, the most serious cases are those which are best counted.

It has been true for decades, for instance, that records on homicides are far better and more reliable than records on rapes and assaults and lesser crimes.

After all, a dead body offers a tangible and objective measure of whether or not a homicide has taken place. And government have long been more concerned with counting homicides than with other crimes. Moreover, witnesses and relatives are more likely to report homicides than lesser crimes.

In both crime and with COVID-19, higher rates may be a result of better observations rather than actual growth in cases.

For example, although many studies have suggested the number of rapes per 100,000 are higher now than decades ago, many criminologists are skeptical this is actually the case. It is likely that rapes are just far more often reported today than they were in times past.

Similarly, as better testing is conducted for COVID-19, it only makes sense that the total number of known cases will increase. But this may not be an accurate representation of the degree to which the disease has spread.

So, we know two things are very likely true.

One is that the death rate of COVID-19 is lower in the US than at the same point in the timeline for many other countries we are told are comparable to the US.

Secondly, we know that death rates are often more informative. This is because testing is more consistent for cases that end in death, while overall case rates depend on conducting tests on those with few or no symptoms.

In most cases, people with relatively mild symptoms — which are the overwhelming majority of cases — have never been identified.
