THE current coronavirus outbreak is an alarming matter. But it seems like the news concerning the Wuhan outbreak is more viral than the virus itself!
And what seems to be worse is the fact that the information that’s going viral may not be factually correct, and all it does is just create unnecessary paranoia.
Nevertheless if let’s say our worst dreams come true, and the virus spreads dangerously within our borders, we’d probably worry about whether there are enough doctors to save this nasi lemak loving population right?
Well, as one Astro Awani anchor hilariously pointed out, shortage of doctors shouldn’t be a worry of ours because the Malaysian Cabinet itself has ... 6 doctors!
Dr. Mahathir, PM
Dr. Wan Azizah, Deputy PM
Dr. Hatta Ramli, Dep Minister
Dr. Lee Boon Chye, Dep Health Minister
Dr A. Xavier Jayakumar, environment minister
Dr. Dzulkefly Ahmad, Health Minister
So probably Malaysian’s should just continue to keep calm and berate foreigners for not liking nasi lemak, because there are enough doctors for these troubling times. And as for creating national policies to prevent further spread of the virus, who better to have in government than 6 doctors.
In the meantime, we don’t think it would be necessary for Dr.M to start donning his stethoscope.
