Heavy responsibility

WORKING on a Sunday is not something many would look forward to, but not for Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, who is always ready to serve.

Chow was recently seen carrying a large box containing 10,000 face masks that were to be handed out during the movement control order (MCO).

Chow (in pic, right) was accompanied by Machang Bubok assemblyman Lee Khai Loon (left), as they loaded Lee’s car with the boxes at Komtar on Sunday.

In a social media post, Lee said despite it being a Sunday, he and Chow were always ready to serve Penangites.

“The Covid-19 pandemic situation in Penang is much to be worried about and we urge everyone to always follow the standard operating procedures.

“We hope everyone stays at home if they do not have important affairs outside, ” he said.

The MCO was implemented from Jan 13 to Jan 26 to flatten the curve of Covid-19 cases, which has now breached the 4,000 mark as of Saturday.
