The EMCO has been implemented to: "membendung jangkitan COVID-19 daripada menular keluar. Langkah ini akan membolehkan aktiviti pengesanan kes dari unit ke unit dilaksanakan sepanjang tempoh 14 hari." With that in mind we waited in anxious anticipation throughout the day for the KKM saringan team to visit our unit.
Sure enough, a young doctor visited our unit at approximately 4:30pm armed only with a form.
He seemed relieved that we were Malaysians, and remarked that he had an hard time dealing with the vast majority of residents in our condo who spoke very little English, and no command of Bahasa Melayu at all. We asked him what will become of the fate of migrants living here without any identification document; he gave us a wry smile and said it would be beyond him, and it would then be the duty of the PDRM to handle them (undocumented migrants).
He then sheepishly asked if we had been to the surau lately; to which we responded no, we are Chinese and Christians at that. Our answer seemed to give him even more relief, although we had no idea why. He looked tired and harried, and we thanked him profusely for doing his job.
We ask that everyone we know to pray for our continued health, safety and well-being.
