Netizens are sharing their fears and frustrations on social media amid a possible second lockdown
As coronavirus deaths pass one million across the world, the recent number of COVID-19 cases in Malaysia are also rising.
Currently, most cases originate from Sabah and Sabah returnees to Peninsular Malaysia.
Terms such as ‘PKP 2.0’ and ‘MCO 2.0’ are trending on Twitter as Malaysians are anticipating a second Movement Control Order (MCO).
Several students shared how they are struggling to complete their studies properly
According to Malay Mail, students are feeling pressured practising online learning because of stress, inefficiency, and poor Internet coverage.
On top of that, the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) noted that the unemployment rate among fresh graduates may increase up to 25% this year.
Meanwhile, other Malaysians are strongly against PKP 2.0 fearing abuse and mental health issues
In a report by Malay Mail, more than half of Malaysians were experiencing negative mental wellness during MCO.
