KUCHING: Sarawak DAP is suspending all its political activities involving human contact for 10 days starting Friday (Oct 9) in view of the current Covid-19 surge.

Its chairman Chong Chieng Jen (pic) said walkabouts in public places as well as public talks and gatherings would be put on hold until Oct 18 when the Health Ministry and state disaster management committee are expected to issue new directives depending on the situation.

"We hope our little effort will help to flatten the curve and ease the burden of the medical staff and frontliners in their fight against Covid-19," he said in a statement on Thursday (Oct 8).

Chong said members of the public could still call the party's service centres and elected representatives or meet them in person.

He said the service centres would remain open during normal office hours while the elected representatives and their assistants would continue to provide service to the public.

"We also take this opportunity to thank the frontliners for their sacrifice in the fight. Let us work together to overcome the crisis," he added.
