Flattening The Curve Doesn’t Mean No More COVID-19 Cases

Hakim Hassan

Flattening the infection curve doesn’t mean that we’re free from COVID-19 cases in the country, according to Ministry of Health Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

He explained that it would mean that the situation is manageable and hospitals are able to cope with the number of patients.

The concern now will be on the increase in imported cases which is why the Movement Control Order (MCO) is tightened within these two weeks.

We fear that imported cases will increase, that is one of the reasons why we implemented MCO and we will continue our active case tracing especially in hot-spot areas, and by doing so we can identify them early, test them, isolate them and treat them.
