MMA: Stick to highest disease control standards

PETALING JAYA: All healthcare providers must maintain the highest standards of infection control to protect themselves while caring for their patients, said Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) president Dr N. Ganabaskaran.

He said that healthcare providers such as doctors, pharmacists, nurses, assistant medical officers and support staff must take care of themselves at all times in view of the four confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in Malaysia.

“MMA also urges the public to only get updates and information from statements released by the Heath Ministry and other relevant ministries concerning such cases in Malaysia.

“The public should not share unsubstantiated information that may create unnecessary fear and panic among the people, ” he said in a statement.

“This was now the time for all Malaysians to place their trust in the government in handling this complex situation.

“We have full faith that it is being handled well by the Health Ministry under the leadership of Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad and that the government is doing its best in carrying out all necessary measures, ” Ganabaskaran said.
