Malaysians tackle pandemic life with humour in TV drama 'Covid Oh Covid'

Local drama 'Covid Oh Covid', which premiered April 2, seeks to capture life during the pandemic but with a dose of humour.

Having lived through the numerous MCOs and its many variations (CMCO, RMCO and so forth), Malaysians know firsthand the difficulties and stresses that come with pandemic life.

Local drama Covid Oh Covid, which premiered April 2, seeks to capture this but with a dose of humour.

The series is set in one Tuan Ariffin's (Tony Eusoff) home. His wife Habsah (Adibah Noor) is extremely worried about being infected with Covid-19 and is a stickler for following all the government-mandated SOPs.

Together, they have four adult children – Suhaila (Nora Danish), an influencer who has to keep postponing her wedding due to the MCO; Safura (Tiz Zaqyah) who tirelessly helps the needy during the pandemic; Salmiah (Nabila Huda) who has a tense relationship with her mum due to a past incident; and Shazrul (Nasiruddin Alaydrus) who is determined to get to the bottom of his dad's recent suspicious behaviour.

Also in the mix is Habsah's mum, Tok Wan (Umie Aida) who has Alzheimer's.

Inevitably, personalities clash as they navigate through these uncertain times as a family, giving rise to plenty of hilarious and heartwarming moments.

Covid Oh Covid airs Wednesdays to Saturdays at 9pm on TV3.
