No fist bumps with your buddy as a preventive measure to stop the spread of Covid-19, says Health Deputy Minister I, Datuk Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali.

He said that it’s best to avoid any physical contact when greeting people.

(There should be) no ‘salam’ (Malay style of greeting with hands together) and other forms of body contact, but today I see that the fist bump has not only become a trend but some people even embrace each each other.

He said that MOH recommends instead to place the hand on the chest and bending the head slightly.

Currently, Dr Noor Azmi said the Ministry will continue to monitor the pandemic as they learn more about the disease.

The weapons we have currently in fighting the disease are the face mask, hand sanitiser and physical distancing.
