GEORGE TOWN, Nov 9 — The Penang State Health Department (JKNPP) has proposed that the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) imposed on the state Remand Prison and prison quarters here be discontinued as scheduled on Wednesday, said Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow.
He said the state government wants these two localities to be under the statewide Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) which came into force today.
However, the state would recommend that the EMCO on the Seberang Perai Prison and prison quarters be extended when it ends on Nov 18, he said.
“The Penang State National Security Council (MKNPP) will present the relevant proposals to the central level for further consideration. In order to curb the spread (of COVID-19) from the Intan cluster, a majority of which are in Mukim 13, JKNPP has been asked to continue with the monitoring and to consider if the EMCO should be enforced on the relevant localities,” he said in a statement today.
Chow also said he had requested the MKNPP to submit an appeal to the central MKN regarding the reopening of private childcare centres to assist parents who need to work during the CMCO period.
“Regarding religious activities for Muslims and non-Muslims, the guidelines will be refined and determined by the Penang Islamic Religious Affairs Department as well as the state government including the SOP for Deepavali celebrations in the state,” he said.
Meanwhile, Chow said 31 roadblocks have been mounted for the statewide CMCO beginning today, involving 1,294 personnel from the Royal Malaysia Police, Malaysian Armed Forces, Malaysian Civil Defence Force and the People’s Volunteer Corps.
“For guidelines at the local authorities level, the Penang Island City Council and Seberang Perai City Council will make the necessary announcements from time to time including on the reopening of parks and recreational locations under their jurisdiction,” he added.

Please See A Doctor If There Are Symptoms, This Doctor Has A Story To Tell
The number of positive cases for COVID-19 has been increasing by days even after a year of battling it here in Malaysia. Other than that, the number of death caused by COVID-19 has also been shockingly increasing and this has made everyone worried about this.
Despite all that, there are also people who still think that COVID-19 is just a conspiracy and never exists. Unfortunately, people who dare to say that got infected with this dangerous virus. The saddest part would be, their condition is getting worse day by day and they really regret what they have said.
According to a recent Facebook post by a doctor, she told the story of a patient who was stubborn and refused to admit that she had been infected with the Covid-19 virus. The doctor named Dr. Malar Santhi Santherasegapan has posted on her Facebook social media post to share the story of a female patient who came to the clinic for treatment because she felt a change in her body after three days.
According to the post:
“Unwell but no fever, cough, or flu. No loss of sense of smell. So what’s sickness? Just feeling uncomfortable, no appetite and fatigue”, said the patient.
“The third day she was feeling unwell, she went to the GP clinic, and was examined by a doctor who recommended her to take a Covid test. She did not want to because her husband does not believe in Covid. The doctor deliberately wants to make a profit. That’s why they asked for a test”, said her husband. Dr. Malar wrote that the patient did not have close contact so she could not be forced to do a swab test, so she had to be released with medication only.
It is understood that on the sixth day, the patient was still unwell, but the story is the same. The patient did not have a fever, and there are no other symptoms of Covid-19. This time around after examination, the doctor heard an unpleasant sound in the lungs. They conducted a chest x-ray and the doctor saw a ‘Pneumonia’-like covid infection. Once again, they advised and persuaded the patient to do a swab test. Still, the patient rejected.
“Her husband said for sure that is not COVID-19 because Covid is a conspiracy”, shared Dr. Malar. Due to the patient’s stubbornness to take the swab test, her health condition worsened upon entering the ninth day. As her condition continued to worsen, the patient finally went to the hospital.
“Her breath seemed a little fast; she looked tired and breathless. The husband looked a little worried—oxygen in 94% -95%. Conducted x-ray again. That’s it. Full-blown Covid-19 Pneumonia, it’s nothing else!”. This time, she just agreed to take a swab test. But her husband had a hard time saying, “You just made us take the swab test because you want to charge us expensively right?”
But the result of the RT PCR COVID-19 test swab is positive! The doctor was not surprised at all. According to Dr. Malar, what was surprising is the honest confession made by the patient as soon as their result was confirmed positive. They both admitted that they had a fever for 10 days, diarrhea 10-15 times a day because they are taking more vitamin C than they needed, which is why the kidney blood tests showed all the high numbers.
After being referred to the Covid hospital in the state, this patient is still dying and fighting for her life. Her husband is also positive and was given respiratory assistance. Both are in a coma. The doctor then posed a rhetorical question.
“Is this COVID-19 a hoax?”. She wrote again.
At the end of her posting, the doctor advised. ” Please go see a doctor and follow the doctor’s advice if you have symptoms, whether there is a close contact COVID or not. Now there are so many symptoms that have just been detected as positive COVID. Not mcm before this where most patients are positive COVID, but not symptomatic”.
