Tindakan ini adalah sama sekali tidak bertanggungjawab yang boleh menimbulkan keresahan dan kerisauan orang ramai.

Bagi mendapatkan maklumat lanjut yang sahih mengenai kejadian COVID-19 di Malaysia:

  • Ikutilah Sidang Media COVID-19 oleh KKM, yang kini dijalankan setiap hari;
  • Laman-laman media sosial rasmi KKM,

Orang ramai dinasihatkan supaya tidak menularkan sebarang berita palsu atau maklumat yang diragui kesahihannya. KKM mengucapkan terima kasih kepada masyarakat yang membantu Kerajaan dalam menyebarkan maklumat yang sahih.

NASIHAT KESIHATAN BERKAITAN COVID-19

KKM ingin menasihati orang ramai agar terus patuhi saranan serta nasihat-nasihat kesihatan yang sering ditekankan. Jadikanlah nasihat-nasihat ini satu kebiasaan baharu dalam kehidupan harian:

  • Amalkan 3W : iaitu kerap mencuci tangan dengan air dan sabun (Wash), memakai alat pelitup muka (facemask) di tempat awam yang telah diwajibkan oleh pihak Majlis Keselamatan Negara (MKN) mulai 1 Ogos 2020 atau jika bergejala (Wear), dan (Warn) iaitu amaran dari KKM yang lebih berkonsep peringatan seperti:
  • Elakkan bersalaman / bersentuhan termasuk melagakan mana-mana bahagian tubuh badan sebagai menggantikan cara kebiasaan bersalam;
    • Amalkan etika batuk dan bersin;
    • Dapatkan rawatan segera jika bergejala;
    • Duduk di rumah dan elakkan kunjung-mengunjung; 
    • Lakukan aktiviti disinfeksi dan pembersihan di kawasan yang kerap disentuh.

Patuhlah kepada S.O.P sebagai normal baharu iaitu:

  • S : Syarat-syarat seperti yang ditetapkan di bawah Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Pemulihan (PKPP);
  • O : Orang yang berisiko tinggi seperti kanak-kanak, bayi, warga emas dan orang kurang upaya (OKU) perlu dilindungi, individu tidak sihat dan bergejala dikehendaki segera menjalani pemeriksaan kesihatan;
  • P : Penjarakan fizikal (physical distancing) sekurang-kurangnya 1 meter diamalkan pada setiap masa.

KKM akan terus memantau perkembangan kejadian jangkitan di dalam negara, dan juga luar negara melalui maklumat yang diperolehi daripada pihak Pertubuhan Kesihatan Sedunia (WHO). Orang ramai akan sentiasa dimaklumkan sebarang perkembangan terkini mengenainya. Begitu juga, KKM akan memastikan langkah pencegahan dan kawalan yang sewajarnya adalah dilaksanakan secara berterusan.

Validity of COVID-19 Information

The government is doing its best to keep the public informed of the latest COVID-19 situation by channeling verified, accurate and timely information. While the Government deals with the spread of COVID-19, the Government also needs to address the issue of viralled messages i.e. the spread of fake news and unverified information that are deliberately created by parties with vested interests. This action is absolutely irresponsible because it causes public anxiety and worry.

To obtain verified information on the COVID-19 situation in Malaysia:

  • Follow the COVID-19 Press Conference by MOH, that is currently held daily;
  • MOH official social media sites;
  • CPRC, MOH telegram channel
  • The MySejahtera application;
  • Information, infographics, videos, MOH official media statements and the latest COVID-19 Guidelines can be obtained from the MOH website: http://covid-19.moh.gov.my; and
  • For COVID-19 health-related issues, the public can contact the National CPRC, MOH at the hotline and the official email

The public is advised not to spread any fake news or unverified information. MOH would like to thank the community for assisting the Government in disseminating verified information.

Health Advisory on COVID-19

MOH advices the public to continue to comply to the recommendations and health advisories that are often emphasised. These advisories must be incorporated as the new normal in our daily life, including:

  • Avoid the 3Cs: Avoid Crowded places; Confined spaces; and Close conversations.
  • Practice the 3Ws: Wash hands frequently with water and soap; Wearing facemasks is now mandatory in public areas (starting from 1 August 2020 as directed by the National Security Council) or highly recommended if symptomatic; Warn self and others for the following, in line with MOH’s advisories:
  • Avoid shaking hands or touching others, including bumping parts of the body in lieu of shaking hands
    • Practice good coughing and sneezing etiquette
    • Seek early treatment if symptomatic
    • Stay at home and avoid from visiting others
    • Regularly clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces in common areas

In addition to the SOPs, continue to adhere to THiS as the new normal:

  • T: Terms set under the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO)
  • Hi: High-risk groups such as children, infants, older adults and the disabled must be protected, and if unwell with symptoms, to seek early treatment
  • S: Safe physical distancing is practiced at all times, of at least 1 metre away from others

MOH will continue to monitor the development of the COVID-19 situation, both in the country as well as internationally, based on available information from the World Health Organization (WHO). The public will be continuously updated on the latest information. In addition, MOH will ensure that appropriate preventive and control measures are continuously implemented.

Thank you.
