KUCHING: Give the new anti-Covid-19 strategy a chance instead of blindly criticising it, said political analyst Datuk Peter Minos.

Recently, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had introduced anti-Covid-19 measures which were severely castigated by some politicians.

“In my opinion, the criticisms are unfair and insensible because the strategy is actually a simultaneous way of saving lives and the economy.

“Enforcing a total lockdown will only destroy the country’s economy and bankrupt our nation.

“However, those who criticise this matter refuse to listen and are not convinced of this strategy. That is why they insist on implementing a total lockdown,” he explained.

Minos further stated that both the government and the citizens want to end this war against the virus but at the same time, they do not want millions of fellow Malaysians to lose their jobs, incomes, and collapsing business.

“Hence, this is where the anti-Covid-19 strategy takes place which focuses on compromising and balancing the livelihood of the citizens as well as saving the economy through enhancing the movement control order (EMCO),” he added.

He revealed that in the beginning, he too thought that a total lockdown is the way to end Covid-19.

“On second thought, our prime minister presented a very strong and valid point. It is wiser that we exercise patience and understanding on the whole situation instead of attacking our prime minister.

“In these dark times, we cannot afford to be divided and have disunity. We need to cooperate and work together in order to win this war against Covid-19,” he said.

He further opined that if within the next seven months the infection and death rates get higher, then it is time for the government to review and revamp the situation.
