Bagi menghargai mereka, tema Hari Diabetes pada tahun ini ialah “Diabetes: Jururawat Nadi Perubahan”.

Dengan kerjasama Perbadanan Putrajaya, bermula pada jam 7.00 malam ini sehingga 15 November 2020, “LightUpBlue@Putrajaya” akan berlangsung di mana bangunan-bangunan dan persekitaran di Putrajaya akan dilimpahi dengan cahaya biru, sebagai tanda sokongan dan penghargaan kepada para jururawat dan lain-lain petugas barisan hadapan yang terus cekal dalam memberikan penjagaan penyakit diabetes dan penyakit-penyakit kronik yang lain terutama dalam waktu mencabar ini.

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:

  • Elakkan 3S / 3C : iaitu elakkan kawasan yang sesak (Crowded place), elakkan kawasan yang sempit (Confined space) dan elak sembang atau bertutur dengan jarak yang dekat (Close conversation).
  • 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.

World Diabetes Day: “Nurses Make The Difference” (Jururawat Nadi Perubahan)

This Saturday, 14 November 2020, we will celebrate World Diabetes Day, which coincides with Deepavali Celebrations. In our fight against COVID-19, it should be remembered that non-communicable diseases (NCDs) must also be controlled. To date, there are an estimated 3.8 million adults in Malaysia living with diabetes. Nurses play a very important role in the prevention, screening, treatment and rehabilitation of people living with diabetes. To mark our appreciation, the theme of this year’s World Diabetes Day is “Nurses Make the Difference” (Jururawat Nadi Perubahan).

In celebrating Deepavali, please do not forget mindful eating, comply to the prescribed SOPs, and also do regular health screening. In collaboration with Putrajaya Corporation, starting at 7 pm tonight until 15 November 2020, “LightUpBlue@Putrajaya” will take place, whereby buildings and the surroundings in Putrajaya will be flooded with blue light, as a sign of support and appreciation to nurses and others frontliner who continue to persevere in providing care for diabetes patients and patients with other chronic diseases, especially in these challenging times.

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).
