THIS is the second year that we’ve held room visits for Raya. My wife and I will visit our children’s room which will be decorated especially for the occasion.
My second daughter has also sent me an invitation for this year’s Hari Raya celebration at her room.
It is up to us to be creative in making Raya more interesting.
As we celebrate Hari Raya in the new norm, try to make Raya fun in your own way and for frontliners, continue to be positive and don’t ignore the Raya celebration entirely.
Remember to take care of yourselves, both mentally and physically, so that you are able to take care of others.
For our frontliners at the department, we have prepared Hari Raya food so that they can continue to experience the Raya spirit and not be let down by the current situation.
We are now considered the last line of defence so we need to strengthen that defence with the help of the public to ensure the health system does not break.
We are now facing the threat of increasing Covid-19 cases and dealing with more infectious variants of Covid-19.
We cannot let our guard down even for a minute as sporadic cases are increasing and widespread in our community.
The success of the movement control order rests on the compliance of the public with the regulations and standard operating procedure.
It was proven that we were able to fight against Covid-19 during the first movement control order and I’m certain that we can do this again.
Take care of yourselves. Together we can get through this. — Dr Samsu Ambia Ismail, head of Teluk Intan Hospital Emergency and Trauma Department
