Experts concerned over Malaysians’ attitude towards virus risk

KUALA LUMPUR: Health experts are concerned that some Malaysians are behaving as though there is no more Covid-19 after the country’s shift to recovery movement control order (MCO) and they have warned that the impact is expected to be seen as early as these few days if no precautions are taken.

Former deputy director-general Prof Datuk Dr Lokman Hakim Sulaiman said that with the easing of interstate travel as the country moved into recovery stage on June 10, new cases were expected to emerge as early as one week after that as the incubation period ranged from four to 14 days.
