No oneâ€™s quite sure when the pandemic will end, but experts are warning that Malaysia will hit its peak by mid-April.
Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah has advised Malaysians to do their part to flatten the curve by continuing to stay at home and observing the Movement Control Order (MCO).
