In a letter to the Star Newspaper on the 20 March 2020, Prof Sanjay Rampal and Prof Awang Bulgiba shared their view on the role of the movement control order or lockdown in the containment of the COVID19 infection. They said that the MCO was implemented may be due to the voluntary social distancing that the government have first implemented it. We now have forced social distancing with the MCO. We all need to comply with these directives for a safer future. Although our healthcare system has prepared for a pandemic scenario. However, health resources are infinite at any one time. All of us have to play our part to attend this epidemic curve over a longer period of time. We can do this by staying at home, shopping responsibly, staggering our shopping time, keeping a distance of one to two metres when outside, and not going out if we are sick.
