Are We In For a Fourth Wave of COVID-19?

COVID-19 cases are back up across Malaysia, having surged above the 2,000 mark for four days in a row. Some health experts are concerned that we’re entering a fourth wave, and with Ramadan bazaars and many social gatherings continuing despite the rise in cases, many are calling on the government to reconsider suspending them. To zoom in on what can be done to tackle the surge, we speak with Dato Professor Dr Adeeba Kamarulzaman from University Malaya.
