Life as we know it has changed thanks to Covid-19.
Change can be challenging even when times are good, let alone in a pandemic that has had a profound impact on our world and cost millions their lives.
As the situation on Covid-19 is constantly evolving, people had to live with ever-changing standard operating procedures (SOPs).
Even more unfortunate is the fact that the authorities have been accused of double standards in enforcing Covid-19 curbs.
A case in point is a recent concert in Johor which had gone viral on social media.

1/2 Why were ordinary Malaysians fined if breaking SOP isn’t a crime? Is PM condoning crime? Double standards because violator is from UMNO? Shameless of PM @IsmailSabri 2 defend Hishammuddin.— Charles Santiago (@mpklang) February 14, 2022
In other countries ministers resign 4 violating SOP. Hishammuddin must resign too. https://t.co/ZaN7clyWQl
At the same time, netizens questioned the strict SOPs for people who want to pray in a mosque or surau.
The decision, which applies to mosques in Selangor, was implemented with consent from Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Al-Haj.
The decision was to prevent Covid-19 infection after seeking advice from the Selangor State Health Department, following the latest pandemic developments in the state.
Unfortunately, the decision had not been well received by some, with others being blamed instead including Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.
