Sabah, Sarawak, ‘part ways’ with Malaya on handling pandemic

Listen to soft instrumental music for 15 to 20 mins before bed to calm the emotions and have a restful night . . .

Sabah, Sarawak, should part ways with Malaya on handling pandemic.

Gov’t needs to get act together on the pandemic.

Sabah, deprived of so much revenue and resources by the Federal gov’t in Malaya, badly needs tourism, among other sectors.

At one time, not so long ago, Sabah was packed with millions of tourists from China in particular.

Sabah was also a favourite vacation destination for Sarawakians and people from Brunei.

The fate of AirAsia will give a clue to the future of the Sabah economy. The prognosis is not good.

The gov’t needs to get its act together on the pandemic. If that doesn’t happen, and happen soon, Sabah and Sarawak should part ways with Malaya on handling the pandemic.

WHO has virtually abdicated its responsibility after the US pulled out of the organisation over questions on its credibility amidst allegations of corruption related to China.

Trump blames Beijing for not containing the virus. China, unable to get its way in the world, might have deliberately unleashed the virus to create chaos from which it can benefit.

Trump doesn’t want to lead on the pandemic even in the US. He has left the matter to the local public healthcare authorities to be handled at the community level, if not the Governors.

There’s a lack of leadership on the pandemic.

That’s why I proposed the Agong appoint me as Advisor to help bring the world together on educating the people on making sure the virus has no place to go and dies out.

Alternatively, the Agong can appoint any other subject matter expert who can help control the Narrative on the pandemic.

The world won’t be free of the pandemic as long as even one person anywhere in the world has the virus. It’s important to isolate virus cases to limit the contagion effects.

This is a contagion spread by movement of people.

Data and science have become dirty words because of Sanjay Gupta, Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, Big Pharma and the Clinton Foundation.

It’s an open secret that science has failed the world on the pandemic. The suspicion is that fake science — scientific consensus for grant dollars — has eclipsed real science i.e. based on scientific method.

There are lessons from the US, India and Brazil, the worst case scenarios.

They have decided not to alternate between shutdown and safe reopening.

These three countries are keeping the economy open, virus or no virus, infections or no infections, vaccine or no vaccine, data or no data, science or no science, politics or no politics.

The cure cannot be worse than the disease. The economy decides. The virus is the people’s responsibility.

There’s no focus on keeping the lid on related hospitalisation and educating the people on the virus.

The media in the US, the hysterical CNN in particular, has gone rogue and has politicised the issue to get Trump out of the White House.

The cure cannot be worse than the disease. The economy decides. The virus is the people’s responsibility.

They are now even blaming the fires in California on Trump.

What kind of cable news network is CNN running? For example, newscasters take turns to run the same news: Trump not masking, for example. The newscasters even interview the same people including Sanjay Gupta and Anthony Fauci.

Trump has dismissed Fauci as a public alarmist.

Gov’t focus on the pandemic cannot extend beyond keeping the lid on hospitalisation related to the novel Corona virus and educating the people on the virus.

It’s not the gov’t with the virus but the people.

The onus is on the people to make sure the virus has no place to go and dies out.

This calls for protecting the respiratory system, sneezing and coughing into the T-shirt, hand sanitising, observing physical distancing, masking in public to filter air before breathing, avoiding crowding and large gatherings, eating at home and if possible working from home.

There’s no need to seek medical attention related to suspect CV-19 situation unless one experiences breathing difficulties.

It was grave strategic error to stop international flights to help related hospitalisation. AirAsia, Air Malindo and Malaysia Airlines should have been consulted by the Ministry of Health (MoH).

The economy should be kept open while keeping a lid on related hospitalisation.

The hotels can be turned into quarantine centres at gov’t expense to prevent the collapse of the hospitality sector.

The paranoia over the pandemic knows no bounds. MoH’s interest should be confined to related hospitalisation. At present, the MoH is nothing more than a public alarmist waxing lyrical on the pandemic.

Let’s just look at the figures.

At the most, one person dies daily in Malaysia of symptoms ALSO related to CV-19, the disease brought by the novel Corona virus.

Such deaths can also be attributed to undetected underlying medical conditions.

It should be mandatory for those aged 40 years and above to go for regular medical reviews, get on a regime of diet, treatment, management, and control if necessary, include moderate exercise and make lifestyle changes.

In fact, it’s not the virus that kills. But let’s not go there.

About 800 people die DAILY in Malaysia of non-CV-19 causes.

The figures in the same category are as follows in the US, India and China: 8K, 24K, and 30K.

About 1K people are dying DAILY in India and US of symptoms ALSO related to CV-19.

China seems to have no figures on the daily CV-19 related deaths, if any. In any case, the communists are great liars as can be seen on Jho Low, the 1MDB Scandal, the South China Sea and Tibet’s undemarcated border with India.

Putrajaya will kill AirAsia for good if it doesn’t heed IATA’s call.

It’s not good for the Malaysian economy.
