Ministry of Health released an infographic for Dengue that has reportedly caused five deaths in Malaysia from 6 September to 12 September. Two of the deaths happened in Johor while the other three deaths happened in Pahang, Selangor and Melaka respectively.

They reminded that just like Covid-19, dengue also has no vaccine or specific treatment. Prevention is the best vaccine for dengue. Just in six months, from 29 December 2019 to 12 September 2020, the Aedes mosquitoes have killed 123 Malaysians making the death count higher than that of Covid-19.

Here are MOH’s recommendations to how you can avoid getting bitten by Aedes mosquitoes:

  • Using mosquito repellents
  • Wearing long-sleeved clothing and pants
  • Spraying mosquito repellent
  • Using mosquito repellent nets and sleeping in them as well
  • Avoid spending time in open places from 6-8am and 6-8pm as these are prime Aedes hours

As much as we need to worry about the Covid-19 outbreak in our country, let us not forget that dengue can be dangerous to you and your family as well. So, please make sure to remove all forms of stagnant water in your homes or any other possible breeding grounds.

On 12 September, the Kaduna State House of Assembly in Nigeria has approved of surgical castration as a way to punish child rapists. On 17 September, the governor of Kaduna officially signed and passed the law, as according to CGTN.

He says,

“Drastic penalties are required to help further protect children from a serious crime.”

If a man is convicted of raping a child under 14 years old, then he would have his testicles removed. If a woman was to rape a child under 14 years old, her fallopian tubes will be cut off.

Anyone who rapes another person over 14 years old will have to face a lifetime of imprisonment.

It is said that Kaduna’s law is the strictest against rape in Nigeria which is Africa’s most populated country.

For most of us, who’s familiar with the story of narcos, DEA, Pablo Escobar and smuggling, it is not a secret that they would do anything just to ensure that their cargo avoids detection and reaches its intended destination.

Three Malaysians and five Singaporeans were stopped by the authorities at several locations, including the River Valley Road, Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre, Clementi and Bukit Purmei for trafficking drugs inside papayas.

With an estimated street value of S$124,000 or US$91,383, the authorities from Singapore’s Central Narcotics Bureau found 375g of methamphetamine, 37g of heroin, 135kg of ketamine and one benzodiazepine tablet.

Noting that the unorthodox methods are giving authorities a hard time, Director of Singapore’s Central Narcotic Bureau Aaron Tang said that the bureau will “Persevere with our vigorous enforcement efforts to ensure that justice is meted out and our drug situation remains under control.”

The bureau also warned that Singapore has strict laws for drug trafficking and the agency conducts rigorous enforcement to stop the flow of drugs into the island nation.

A broken mother who accidentally ran over and killed her 17-month-old daughter has spoken of her life-shattering grief.

Anna Seagren was killed when she was hit at the family’s farm in Mount Jagged, South Australia, on Friday.

Distraught mum Jessi had just taken her four-wheel drive to pick up eldest daughter Grace when tragedy struck.

She hit the young child on their return home from collecting the eight-year-old from a bus stop.

Now she has detailed how she told her children – and sounded a warning to other parents.

“We just didn’t see her come out,” the devastated mother told Seven News.

“I saw her as soon after I’d made the mistake so I knew she was gone.

“She was really cheeky, really cuddly and affectionate. She was just a perfect, happy, boisterous, gorgeous girl.”

She added: “We’ve told the other kids that she’s an angel now and she’s not going to come home anymore – but we can still talk to her and we love her, and that we were lucky to be her parents for those 17 months.

“She loved going on the motorbikes. She loved the chickens. She would chase them around,” the emotional mum said.

She urged other parents to “slow down, just don’t rush, take that extra minute” and “give them that last cuddle” before leaving the house.

Major Crash investigators went to the property over the weekend and are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the fatal incident.

“The toddler was hit by the family 4WD,” local police said in a statement on Saturday.

“Sadly, despite the efforts of paramedics at the scene, the 17-month-old girl could not be saved.”

Dad Danny Seagren said the family loved little Anna “more than anything” as the try to come to terms with the events.

Monkey steals phone and takes selfies

MONKEY BUSINESS: A Malaysian man says a thief stole his phone, took pictures, and shot video. The thief isn't quite who you'd expect.

Posted by CBS News on Selasa, 15 September 2020

Zackrydz Rodzi said he believes a monkey came into his house while he was asleep and took his phone outside, where the primate apparently played with the device and inadvertently snapped some selfie photos and videos.

One video appears to show the monkey attempting to put the phone into its mouth.

“Something that you might see once in a century,” Rodzi tweeted.
