Klang Valley hospitals are buckling under the surge of Covid cases. Could this crisis have been anticipated and planned for?

Astro Awani’s Sharaad Kuttan and Melisa Idris ask Dr Christopher Lee, the national advisor for infectious diseases in the Ministry of Health; Azrul Mohd Khalib, a social activist; and Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj, a medical doctor and chairperson of the Socialist Party of Malaysia, what immediate action is needed now.

The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.
