(Kuala Lumpur) The Malaysian-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) cautiously welcomed the government's decision to allow for the conditional opening of nearly all commercial sectors, but reminded all that once the exercise of vigilance relaxed, the third wave of the CV-19 would result in backlash on our national economy!

Taking the example of Hokkaido, Japan, which had to resume its lockdown the 26 days after lifting it. Stated in a statement issued by MCCC today.

Viewing of this, MCCC President, Datuk Tan Yew Sing pointed out that commercial activities that allowed to operate must strictly adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOP) set by the Ministry of Health. The employers could provide a supportive environment for their employees and not to hold back the potential asymptomatic to protect their own interest.

He further said that although the CV-19 in Malaysia has shown sign of curve flattening, we should not let our guard down, we should exercise self-discipline and maintain a high level of hygiene indeed.

Datuk Tan urged the relevant businesses or sectors to co-operate with the government’s conditional movement control order, to refrain from organizing mass gatherings or religious activities, to help to curbing the spread of CV-19.

It has been more than 40 days since the implementation of MCO on 18 March. We have also entered a new normal, like less going out, keeping social distance, wearing masks, washing hands frequently and so forth. MCCC do hope that every one of us will continue to adhere to and practice these good habits and guard against the resurgent risk of the pandemic.

MCCC called on the government to set up roadblocks in areas where MCO is still in enforcement to avoid a deterioration in traffic congestion.

MCCC also hopes that law enforcement officials will take more considerate measures during the conditional opening period and will not compound people who have unintentionally violated the law, and help people adjust and adapt to the normalcy, while minimizing the misinterpretation of the relaxation order.

MCCC hopes that the government would allow limited visitors, especially donors to visit hospitals, homes for the elderly, nursing homes and orphanages.

The government should also allow the funeral process be conducted for no more than 25 people. After all, it is something that cannot be waited for.

In addition, MCCC considers that to better prevent the spread of the disease, the government should publicly declare the buildings which are restricted to closure for the detection of new cases, to keep the public away from the relevant areas.
