As Covid-19 cases continue to surge in the past few days, singer Ayda Jebat took to Instagram on Oct 6 and pleaded for a lockdown.
"I'd like to ask for a lockdown or a tightening of the movement control order." the 28-year-old wrote.
"If a lockdown isn't implemented or the SOPs aren't tightened, cases will rise as families and friends continue to go out, aside from going to work and school, to have meals and roam about."
"I'm worried and I love my family and everyone."
Beginning a week ago, over 200 cases have been recorded in Malaysia each day. Shortly after uploading the social media post yesterday, the number of cases climbed to its highest yet – 691.
"What do you guys think?" she asked her 5.3 million-strong followers. "I'm so sorry. Need to post this. May we all be protected from this disease."
The Temberang hitmaker got engaged to TV host Nabil Mahir last April in an online ceremony.
