Bersatu Deputy President and Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu says that the public should not blame politicians for the recent spike in Covid-19 cases nationwide.

According to FMT, the politician urged the public to stay calm and reminded that the virus did not choose its victims and that anyone could be infected.

Whether it is the president of the United States or an ordinary citizen, anyone can get infected.

His comments come shortly after ongoing uproar on social media with Malaysians conveying their anger at politicians who travelled between Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah in September to campaign for the state elections on 26 September.

As Malaysia broke it’s record for new cases three times since the pandemic began in the first week of October alone, several hashtags have been trending online including #RakyatJagaRakyat , #PoliticiansPuncaVirus, #KlusterMenteri and #SiswaJagaSiswa among others.
