JOHOR BARU: Do proper research first before making any content that could lead to misinformation among the public, says Johor health and environment committee chairman Ling Tian Soon.

He added that a video, which has gone viral for the past few days, showed an abandoned building next to Klinik Desa Bakar Batu here, likening it to a “ghost house”.

“However, the person who made the video may have misunderstood that the abandoned building was originally used as quarters and had been abandoned for many years.

“The Johor Health Department has plans to transform the abandoned building into an additional space to expand the existing clinic,” he said in a Facebook post here on Monday (Feb 19).

Ling added that the clinic was upgraded in 2010 where it has been providing a comfortable environment to both medical staff and patients.

“I really hope that before sharing any information, it should be properly researched first because incomplete information has led to misunderstanding among the public thinking the clinic is in poor condition,” he said.

The Yong Peng assemblyman, who is also MCA Youth chief, thanked the public for showing their concern towards medical facilities in Johor.

He said that he would ensure that all medical facilities and their services in the state will always receive proper attention.

“Last year, Johor received funding to upgrade 29 clinics with an allocation of RM13mil and this year, we will continue to work hard to ensure that old health facilities are repaired and upgraded so that the public can get better healthcare,” he added.
