SOP operasi Taska, Tadika diketahui hari ini

April 30, 2020 | News | No Comments

Pelaksanaan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP) yang masuk hari kedua dalam fasa empat, menyaksikan kerajaan terus berusaha keras untuk mengekang penularan wabak koronavirus (Covid-19).

Hari ini, rakyat bakal mengetahui prosedur operasi standard (SOP) berkaitan pembukaan operasi taman asuhan kanak-kanak (Taska) dan Taman Didikan Kanak-Kanak (Tadika) sepanjang PKP keempat yang bermula 29 April hingga 12 Mei.

Semalam, Menteri Kanan (Keselamatan), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob memaklumkan perkara berkenaan akan dibincangkan dalam Mesyuarat Khas Menteri-menteri Berkenaan Pelaksanaan PKP hari ini.

Selain isu berkenaan, Ismail Sabri juga memaklumkan bahawa pada mesyuarat yang sama, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri (Hal Ehwal Agama), Datuk Seri Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri akan membincangkan SOP berkaitan ibadah sepanjang bulan Ramadan ini selain nasib penganjuran aktiviti sukan seperti Liga Malaysia (Liga-M).

PKP fasa empat turut memperlihatkan kelonggaran yang diberi kerajaan dengan membenarkan dua individu dari rumah yang sama dan keluarga terdekat bergerak dalam satu kenderaan untuk keluar membeli makanan dan barang keperluan harian.

Sebelum ini, hanya ketua keluarga dibenarkan bergerak untuk membeli makanan dan barang keperluan harian.

Kelonggaran SOP fasa empat juga menyaksikan kerajaan membenarkan pergerakan melebihi 10km untuk mendapatkan barang keperluan serta perkhidmatan kesihatan dan perubatan, jika keperluan dan perkhidmatan itu tidak terdapat dalam radius 10km dari kediaman mereka.

Pada masa sama, Ismail Sabri turut menegaskan bahawa tiada istilah hukuman dua darjat bagi mereka yang melanggar PKP kerana kerajaan sentiasa bersikap adil dan tindakan undang-undang yang diambil adalah mengikut tuduhan dikenakan.

Dalam pada itu, Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah berkata, Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM) amat menitikberatkan garis panduan yang ditetapkan sebelum ini ke atas mana-mana sektor susulan beberapa sektor ekonomi sudah mula beroperasi pada fasa empat PKP.

Sama ada Taska, restoran atau institusi berkaitan ekonomi sekalipun, mereka perlu mengutamakan garis panduan yang ditetapkan dan perkembangan ini akan dipantau KKM sebelum membenarkan sektor lain seperti pendidikan dan sosial pula dibuka untuk beroperasi.

KKM sudah boleh mendabik dada kerana negara mencatatkan kes positif Covid-19 terendah sejak PKP dilaksana pada 18 Mac dengan 22 kes sahaja dilapor.

Bagaimanapun, susulan terdapat 72 kes import membabitkan warganegara dan pelajar pulang dari Indonesia, ia terus mencecah kepada 94 kes secara keseluruhan.

Rakyat juga boleh berasa lega kerana tiada pertambahan kes kematian berkaitan Covid-19 dengan kekal 100 kes, selain terdapat 55 kes telah pulih dan dibenarkan discaj semalam, menjadikan jumlah kumulatif kes yang pulih sepenuhnya ialah 4,087 kes.

Jika kita ingin statistik berkaitan Covid-19 terus menurun, pastinya pilihan terletak di tangan kita untuk terus mematuhi arahan PKP. Kalau bukan kita, siapa lagi?

Permintaan tinggi dalam kalangan pengguna di Malaysia dan seluruh dunia ekoran wabak Covid-19 telah menyebabkan berlaku peningkatan penjualan ubat-ubatan yang tidak berdaftar dan palsu dalam talian.

Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah berkata, penularan wabak itu telah memberi peluang kepada penjenayah siber untuk mengambil kesempatan berdasarkan permintaan tinggi untuk produk kesihatan dan perlindungan diri.

Beliau berkata, sepanjang tempoh Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP) dari 18 Mac sehingga 20 April lepas, sebanyak 38 aduan berkenaan ubat-ubatan dan produk farmaseutikal yang didakwa boleh digunakan untuk merawat Covid-19 telah diterima pihaknya.

“Sejumlah 182 pautan di laman sesawang yang menjual ubat-ubatan yang tidak berdaftar yang mempunyai tuntutan rawatan Covid-19 telah disaring dan disekat manakala 556 notifikasi dikeluarkan kepada platform e-marketplace bagi menurunkan penjualan produk-produk tidak berdaftar atas tujuan yang sama,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan di sini, hari ini.

Sementara itu, Dr Noor Hisham berkata, Malaysia telah terlibat dalam Operasi Pangea XIII yang merupakan satu tindakan kolektif peringkat antarabangsa terhadap penjualan ubat-ubatan dan produk perubatan yang dijual secara haram dari 3 hingga 10 Mac lepas.

Operasi Pangea XIII telah diselaraskan oleh polis antarabangsa (Interpol) dengan penglibatan polis, kastam dan pihak berkuasa kesihatan dari 90 negara.

Dalam operasi antarabangsa ini penutup mulut dan hidung, pensanitasi tangan yang tidak menepati piawaian, ubat antivirus yang tidak sah dan ubat-ubatan yang berbahaya bernilai lebih dari AS$14 juta (RM60.8 juta) telah disita dan dirampas selain 2,000 pautan dalam talian yang mengiklankan item yang berkaitan dengan Covid-19 turut ditemui.

Operasi kali ini menunjukkan peningkatan sekitar 18 peratus dalam rampasan ubat antivirus tidak sah, dan peningkatan lebih daripada 100 peratus dalam rampasan hydroxychloroquine dan chloroquine yang juga dikaitkan dengan wabak Covid-19.

Menurut Dr Noor Hisham, sepanjang operasi itu di Malaysia, sebanyak 347 laman sesawang peribadi, 360 akaun di laman sosial dan 585 pautan di platform e-marketplace yang didapati menjual produk farmaseutikal yang menyalahi peruntukan undang-undang yang dikuatkuasakan telah dipantau, disiasat dan diambil tindakan.

“Sebanyak 853 bungkusan pos telah diperiksa. Daripada jumlah itu, 79 bungkusan pos yang didapati mengandungi produk farmaseutikal yang tidak berdaftar telah dirampas.

“Antara produk utama yang dikesan dan dirampas adalah kosmetik yang tidak bernotifikasi dan juga produk kesihatan yang kebanyakannya tidak berdaftar dengan KKM,” katanya.

Mengulas lanjut, sepanjang tempoh itu juga, Dr Noor Hisham memaklumkan pihaknya turut merampas 23,278 produk farmaseutikal yang menyalahi peruntukan undang-undang bernilai RM633,455.60, berikutan serbuan ke atas 50 premis tidak berlesen yang kebanyakannya menjual produk farmaseutikal dalam talian di seluruh negara.

Operasi Pangea di Malaysia telah melibatkan kerjasama antara Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM) dengan Jabatan Kastam Diraja Malaysia (JKDM), Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM), Pos Malaysia, pihak kurier dan juga platform e-marketplace

Doctors are some of the most amazing beings on earth for their selflessness in putting themselves in the face of danger just to treat their patients.

A Thai doctor named Doctor Soi who works in a rural health clinic in the Nan province has achieved internet fame for hiking two mountains and crossing a stream to treat a child. The story was shared on a Nan Province Facebook page. Without further ado, let’s dive into the story.

It was a hot day and Dr. Soi was working at the health clinic like any other day. She had a very simple lunch and is going through some files. Suddenly, a person came in to report of a child who has a fever while in quarantine with their family in another area.

Dr. Soi said that she’ll visit the child to take a look at them. With that, she got dressed in her full PPE as a safety precaution, wore some rain boots as she knew she had to cross a stream and put some medical supplies in a bag. She then set off to the village on a motorcycle with an assistant. As they were in a rural area, there were only steep, narrow dirt roads and often times Dr. Soi would need to walk while her assistant rode the motorcycle. It was 38°C.

Right before their destination, there is a super steep road and Dr. Soi was already exhausted that time. When her assistant reached the top, he asked her if she was okay. Although she was tired to the bone, she said that she was fine. With the weight of the bag making itself known on one side, she held onto any roots or trees that she can find. Due to her fatigued state, she kept slipping and falling. When she finally reached the top, she saw a small little hut in the distance.

Getting closer, she can see that the little wooden hut is in the middle of a farm and there were about six people there, two older ladies with four children. They were very happy to see the doctor and her assistant. Overwhelmed, Dr. Soi felt her tears welling up but she covered it up by asking the children whether staying at a farm was fun. Everyone said that it was fun.

Dr. Soi set out to work and examined the sick child as she didn’t want to go down those dirt roads in the dark. The child had a slight fever and a sore throat, so she gave them some medicine and asked the mother to monitor the child’s condition.

When Dr. Soi reached her home that day, she was thoroughly exhausted but her sleep was troubled with the thought of the sick child. After three days, the person who sends food and water to the family of six came to the clinic and told Dr. Soi that the child has recovered.

Feeling relieved, Dr. Soi says that by interacting with the villagers, she forgot all the tiredness and hardships she faced during work. All she wanted was for them to receive good healthcare.

Dr. Soi is such an inspiring doctor for going all out to treat a patient during these troubled times! Thank you Dr. Soi!

As China begins to return to a state of normalcy after cases of Covid-19 across the nation have seen significant drops, more and more of the local population are doing their very best to adapt by what is now termed as ‘the new normal’. Which means washing your hands often, and of course, practising social distancing.

But the concept of social distancing may be pretty difficult for children to grasp, and more difficult for them to put into practice. Unless of course, you come up with a highly creative and visually engaging way to teach them about it!

According to a recently viral post on Chinese social media platform Weibo, one school in Hangzhou, China has decided to draw from old Chinese history in order to help their young students understand the importance of social distancing. How, you ask?

By getting their students to make their very own Song-dynasty style ‘social distancing’ hats, complete with the very very long flaps on each side!

Made out of homemade craft materials like balloons, cardboard and paper, the hats are meant to measure roughly 1-metre in width to help students get a tangible understanding of how to put social distancing into practice.

These hats are most likely to be familiar for audiences who watched old Chinese dramas set in the Song Dynasty, which were initially designed by Emperor Taizu to prevent palace officials from whispering to each other when they were attending court assemblies.

Food delivery riders are one of the MVPs during this MCO. They help us to tapau food, rain or shine when we can’t go out.

This abang rider was delivering a cake to a customer when it started raining really bad, reported Star. When he went to collect the order, the seller gave him two cakes, one for the customer and the other one for him. The skies were dark at that time and it had already started raining heavily. The distance to the drop off point is only 2km away.

The customer told him to wait until the rain stopped to deliver the cake. However, 45 minutes had passed and the rain still did not stop. Zulhairi (the rider), felt sorry for his customer as they had waited such a long time, so he just went on his motorbike and dropped the order off.

When he passed the cake to the customer, the customer gave him another envelope but he had no time to check the contents or to say “thank you” because it was raining dogs and cats.

After he was done with the delivery, he stopped at a nearby bus stop to wait out the rain. He opened up the cake and saw that there was an envelope inside it. Curious, he peered into it and found an RM50 note inside of it! He checked the envelope the customer gave him and saw that it contained another RM50 as well. He then texted them to say thanks and show his appreciation.

“They gave me so much even though the distance between the two places were really close. Maybe it’s because I was really soaking wet from the rain.”

In addition to that, abang Zulhairi would also like to remind the other riders to be extra careful when delivering food items during this rainy season.

“I myself would not take any orders when it’s raining very heavily. You can’t really see the road conditions and whether there is a pothole or not.”

It’s not just the consumers that are taking care of the food delivery riders, Grab is also taking an active step by establishing a “Partner Protection Fund”. Through this fund, RM1,000 will be given to drivers and/or riders who are Covid-19 positive or has been directed to self-quarantine.

There is also another fund, the “Partner Relief Fund” of up to RM300 in the form of vouchers for drivers and riders to buy their daily household needs. The voucher can be used on most Grab services such as mobile reloads, purchasing food or groceries at up to 50% off.

Other than the funds, Grab is also providing its partners free masks via GrabBenefits.

This is awesome! We hope that abang Zulhairi is staying safe on the job and for the rest of us, don’t forget to stay home and stay clean!

PDRM has successfully detained three Rohingya men who were responsible for a series of break-ins in Kulai, Johor that have been recurring since last year.

Kulai Police Chief, Tok Beng Yeow, said that the three suspects were caught conducting separate raids in a village lodge and two houses within the district last night from 8pm on Monday night t0 3am on Tuesday, following reports from Sinar Harian.

“During the raid, the police seized two cars, break-in equipment, different currencies of cash, bank books, passports, jewelry and two laptops, all worth more than RM80,000,” he said at a press conference in the District Police Headquarters, today (29th April).

This incident unfortunately caused more backlash towards the Rohingya community.

It was mentioned that this wasn’t the first of their reported criminal activity. According to the Police chief, the men were also “involved in several break-in cases and the most recent case in Indahpura which took place on 26th April involving a 40-year-old male victim.”

According to the suspects, their modus operandi was to break into the house through the front door and windows with a screwdriver before sneaking in. The group of men aged between 20 to 32-year-olds were arrested with two young girls, aged 8 and 9 respectively.

Despite the detainment of these three suspects, authorities are still on the lookout for the group’s main masterminds, 32-year-old Abdullah and 20-year-old Norjan, who have yet to be found.

“Further investigations revealed that the group committed a total of 10 home burglaries in Indahpura, Bandar Putera, Saleng and Senai since November last year,” added the police chief.

While some of the suspects had a United Nations Commissioner for Refugee (UNHCR) card with them, others didn’t have any form of documentation to verify their identities, “Police are still investigating all the unemployed suspects for how long they’ve lived in the country.”

Stay safe guys!
