The Consequences Of Our Rising Covid-19 Cases

Malaysia's COVID-19 cases have been progressively rising leaving many to wonder what the increase in numbers means in our fight against the pandemic. First - we hear the case numbers updated daily, and they’ve been alarming. We look at what on-the-ground impact this will have on our healthcare system and communities. We then find out what has been happening with the recent headlines of overcapacity and a lack of coordination at COVID-19 Assessment Centres and Quarantine Centres.
