Malaysia Has 4 Most Dangerous COVID-19 Cities In Asia?

Malaysia Has 4 Most Dangerous COVID-19 Cities In Asia?

Does Malaysia have four of the most dangerous COVID-19 cities in Asia?

Take a look at the viral infographic, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Malaysia Has 4 Most Dangerous COVID-19 Cities In Asia?

People are sharing this infographic, claiming that Malaysia has four of the most dangerous COVID-19 cities in Asia, according to WorldAtlas.

  • Kuala Lumpur : second most dangerous city in Asia
  • Petaling Jaya : third most dangerous city in Asia
  • Klang : fourth most dangerous city in Asia
  • Johor Bahru : tenth most dangerous city in Asia

Note : This is fake news, so we placed a FALSE overlay to prevent it from being abused further.

 

Malaysia Does NOT Have 4 Most Dangerous COVID-19 Cities In Asia

This is more fake news being shared on WhatsApp.

This infographic is real, but it was edited to convey a completely different message. Here is what you need to know

Fact #1 : This Infographic Is From 2016

This infographic is genuine, but it was originally posted in April 2016, not 2021.

The fake news creator just added the words “Covid terror countries” at the top.

Fact #2 : Infographic Was About Crime, Not COVID-19

The infographic above was about crime, not COVID-19. Obviously, COVID-19 did not exist back in 2016.

Fact #3 : Ranking Was Roundly Mocked

The WorldAtlas ranking was not based on actual crime statistics, but user surveys on the website, Numbeo.

Needless to say, it roundly mocked when it was released, as it did not reflect actual realities.

Fact #4 : Klang Isn’t A City

Klang is not a city, it’s a town. That’s another reason why the WorldAtlas ranking in 2016 was mocked.

Kelana Jaya Health Clinic Now Only For COVID-19 Patients?

Is it true that the Kelana Jaya Health Clinic has been closed, and will now be used only for COVID-19 patients on oxygen?

Take a look at the viral message, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Kelana Jaya Health Clinic Now Only For COVID-19 Patients?

This warning and picture have gone viral on WhatsApp, claiming that the Kelana Jaya Health Clinic (Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya) is now officially closed, and will only be used for COVID-19 patients on oxygen.

Pls viral to all ur friends in kelana Jaya pj. Klinik kesihatan kelana jaya is officially closed now. Positive cases are on their way here on oxygen. The doctors are put on call in shifts starting from 8pm tonight till tomorrow. They have converted it into a covid battle field.

 

Kelana Jaya Health Clinic Not For COVID-19 Patients, Operating As Usual

This is yet another COVID-19 fake story that has gone viral on WhatsApp. And here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Kelana Jaya Health Clinic Operating As Usual

The Kelana Jaya Health Clinic (Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya) confirmed that this is fake news, and said that they are operating as usual.

Pihak pengurusan Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya ingin memaklumkan ini adalah BERITA PALSU. Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya beroperasi seperti biasa.

Please be informed that this is FAKE NEWS. Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya is operating as usual.
#semaksebelumkongsi #pastikanbenar

Fact #2 : Picture Was Taken At HTAR In Klang

This is for those who ask, “What if the government is lying???”

If you look closely at the background of the photo, you can see that the place has a fence made of unpainted red bricks and vertical iron bars.

It would match the fence at HTAR (Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah) in Klang, but not the actual Kelana Jaya Health Clinic (Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya), which has white walls and both horizontal and vertical iron bars.

Fact #3 : Those Patients Were Not On Oxygen

If you look at the picture carefully, you can see that the COVID-19 patients were not on oxygen at all.

Fact #4 : Those Patients Were Waiting For Beds

Due to the sudden surge in COVID-19 cases, HTAR ran out of beds in the wards, and had to set up makeshift beds outside their Emergency Department.

The patients in the photo were already treated at the Emergency Department before being assigned a makeshift beds, while waiting for new beds in the wards are being readied.

This was explained in a Selangor State Health press release on 8 July 2021.

AEON 1 Utama Reopening After Sanitisation + Swab Tests!

AEON is reopening their 1 Utama departmental store after shutting it down for sanitisation and swab tests!

Here are the LATEST updates…

 

AEON 1 Utama Closed 3 Days For Sanitisation + Swab Tests!

On 4 July 2021, AEON announced that they are closing their 1 Utama departmental store for 3 days as “part of precautionary measure”.

This came after unverified rumours of over 50 cases of COVID-19 in AEON 1 Utama circulated on WhatsApp :

Update : 1 Utama just announced that “there is NO confirmed DELTA variant case” at their shopping mall.

On 7 July 2021, AEON announced that they are reopening on 8 July 2021, after completing “a comprehensive sanitisation exercise” and performing “a full swab test on [their] employees“.

They also confirmed that the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) informed them that they have “no knowledge of any information regarding the Delta strain” in the COVID-19 cases at AEON 1 Utama.

I’m not sure if it was a slip on their part, but their 7 July 2021 statement refers to “the COVID-19 cases at AEON Bandar Utama“. That would suggest that there may been COVID-19 cases in AEON 1 Utama.

Recommended : 1 Utama : No Delta Variant COVID-19 Infections!

 

AEON 1 Utama : Official Statements On COVID-19 Concerns!

Here is the official 4 July 2021 statement by AEON 1 Utama on their closure.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Value Customers and Business Partners

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY

With your best interest at heart, AEON Bandar Utama in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor is undergoing a full sanitisation exercise as part of precautionary measure, thus it is closed for three days from 5 July 2021 until 7 July 2021.

The health and well-being of our employees, customers and business partners are our utmost priority. We will continue to observe stringent adherence to MKN guidelines and comply fully with preventive measures set by the Ministry of Health.

The strict adherence is necessary in our effort to create a safe environment for everyone and effectively operate in the new normal.

We appreciate your continuous support and look forward to providing you with AEON’s excellent service standard when we resume operations.

Thank you, take care and stay safe. #KitaJagaKita #PatuhiSOP.

The Management
AEON CO. (M) BHD

4 July 2021

And here is the official 7 July 2021 statement by AEON on their reopening and the rumours of Delta variants in the COVID-19 cases at AEON 1 Utama.

AEON Bandar Utama
7 July 2021

Dear Valued Customers,

AEON Bandar Utama has taken measures to voluntarily close for three days from 5 July 2021. To ensure the safety and well-being of our customers and employees, the outlet is undergoing a comprehensive sanitisation exercise as part of SOPs. As part of the exercise, we had also performed a full swab test on the employees. With these actions taken and the guidance from the respective authorities, we will be reopening on 8 July 2021.

We would also like to respond to the current circulation of information going around social media and WhatsApp groups.

MOH has informed us that that [sic] they have no knowledge of any information regarding the Delta strain in the COVID-19 cases at AEON Bandar Utama as claimed, and that all rumours are from unverified sources.

We are committed in continuing to be transparent and upfront in our communication to ensure our customers and community are well-informed in curbing the spread of COVID-19.

 

AEON 1 Utama COVID-19 Concerns : Should You Be Worried?

If you visited AEON 1 Utama on or before 4 July 2021, you may be contacted by the Malaysia Ministry of Health if you are identified as a close contact.

If you are identified as a close contact, you will then be asked to immediately self-quarantine and get yourself tested for COVID-19.

There is NO NEED to get tested for COVID-19, unless you have been identified as a close contact.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the outlet of any infectious particles.

But most important of all – we need to remember to always wear a face mask in public. Face masks have been proven to prevent the spread and reduce the risk of being infected.

1 Utama : No Delta Variant COVID-19 Infections!

Were Delta variant COVID-19 infections detected at AEON 1 Utama, or the 1 Utama Shopping Centre?

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Rumour : 50+ Delta Variant COVID-19 Cases @ AEON 1 Utama!

Unverified rumours of over 50 cases of COVID-19 in AEON 1 Utama have circulated on WhatsApp for several days :

According to a friend … Aeon 1U, there are 50+ staff & customers infected with covid positive cases … Those who have been to 1U last few days are advise to go for Covid test …

Don’t go shopping at 1 Utama as there’s a Delta cluster there.

A friend

Apparently there are 50+ staff & customers infected with covid positive cases… Those who have been to 1U last few days are advised to go for Covid test …

They have confirmed that cases in Aeon bandar Utama is Delta Variant.

The Delta variant has been a real concern globally, because it is much more infectious and has been shown to be partially resistant to vaccines.

Recommended : Why Delta Variant Causes MORE Breakthrough Infections!

 

1 Utama : No Delta Variant COVID-19 Infections!

We earlier reported on the rumours of the 50+ COVID-19 cases, when AEON shut down their 1 Utama outlet for three days.

At that time, AEON only stated that their 1 Utama outlet was being closed for “a full sanitisation exercise as part of precautionary measure“.

Their statement, which was not posted in their Facebook page, avoided any mention of COVID-19.

On 7 July 2021, 1 Utama announced that “there is NO confirmed DELTA variant case” at their shopping mall.

However, 1 Utama did not refute the rumours of 50+ COVID-19 cases at their shopping mall recently.

So we can only deduce that AEON 1 Utama was shut down over COVID-19 concerns. Whether there are 50 cases or no cases at all – there’s no way to know.

All we can now confirm is that – no Delta variant case has been reported at the 1 Utama Shopping Centre.

 

1 Utama Statement Refuting Delta Variant Claim

Here is the official statement by 1 Utama refuting claims that there was a Delta variant cluster at their shopping mall :

Dear All, we refer to the various messages and unverified rumours circulating over social media and WhatsApp regarding staff and customers being infected with the COVID DELTA variant at 1 Utama.

We wish to state that this is FAKE NEWS and that there is NO confirmed DELTA variant case reported at 1 Utama to date after checking with the Health Department in charge of Petaling District.

We understand that everyone is worried but please stay calm and DO NOT FORWARD unverified messages and rumours as it will create unnecessary anxiety and panic during this challenging time.

Rest assured, we remains fully compliant with all required SOPs to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees, shoppers and tenants. This includes frequent cleaning and sanitisation using hospital grade disinfectants as well as purifying indoor air with comprehensive air filtration systems and UV lights.

Lastly, we urge everyone to adhere to the routine SOP’s and maintain a high standard of personal hygiene so that we could keep each other safe.

Thank you for your continuous support.

AstraZeneca Vaccination @ Universiti Malaya : A Video Guide!

The Leong family were amongst the first to receive the AstraZeneca vaccination at Universiti Malaya (UM).

They shared with us their experience, and a video to help you get there and show you what the process is like at the vaccination centre!

If you are headed to the WTCKL (PWTC) vaccination centre, take a look at my video + picture guide!

If you are headed to the UKM Bangi vaccination centre, be sure to check Sharmine Ishak’s experience too!

 

AstraZeneca Vaccination @ Universiti Malaya : A Video Guide!

The Leong family were amongst the first to receive the AstraZeneca vaccination at the Universiti Malaya (UM) vaccination centre.

The dynamic duo, Melissa and Denise Leong, created this awesome video to help you get to the UM vaccination centre, and show you what the process is like once you get there!

Here is a step-by-step pictorial guide :

  1. When you get to the arch at the entrance of Universiti Malaya, just head straight for about 800 metres.
  2. Take a left turn when you see the sign Pusat Pemberian Vaksin (Vaccination Centre) at Persiaran Gagasan.
  3. Drive straight until you see the sign Penerima Vaksin (Vaccine Recipients).
  4. Take a left turn and look for a parking space.
  5. Walk to the examination hall, but only enter about 15 minutes before your appointment.

  1. Before you enter, make sure you scan the MySejahtera QR code to log your visit.
  2. They will then verify your appointment date and time, upon which you are given a numbered card.

  1. Once inside, you will be seated at Station 1 to wait for your turn.
  2. At Station 2, you will register yourself and scan the QR code for vaccination. Then you are given two copies of the consent form.
  3. You will sign the consent forms at Station 3, where you will have the opportunity to consult the attending doctor.

  1. At Station 4, you will queue for your turn to be vaccinated with the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
  2. After receiving your AstraZeneca vaccination, you will be asked to wait in an observation area for 15 to 30 minutes, before you are allowed to leave.

All in all, the entire process took less than an hour, including the observation time. They went in at 11:20 AM and came out at 12:10 PM.

I would like to thank Jory, Melissa and Denise Leong for not only sharing their experience and pictures with us, but also the great video guide!

This will be immensely useful to those who are going to Universiti Malaya for the AstraZeneca vaccination soon!

 

Post AstraZeneca Vaccination Side Effects

Jory had soreness at the injection site, and mild fatigue.

Melissa had soreness at the injection site, mild fatigue and some body aches.

Denise had soreness at the injection site, on-and-off fatigue, mild fever, headache and nausea that resolved after the first night’s sleep.

AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine : A Quick Primer!

The AstraZeneca Vaxzevria vaccine, codenamed AZD1222, is a viral vector vaccine against COVID-19.

It uses a chimpanzee adenovirus – ChAdOx1 – which has been modified to prevent replication, to introduce a DNA sequence of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

Once injected, the vaccine enters the cell and “teaches” it to produce the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins and express them on its surface.

These spike proteins triggers the immune response to create antibodies that will protect you against the real SARS-CoV-2 virus.

This is a 2-dose vaccine, with the second dose given 12 weeks after the first dose.

SJKC Puay Chai 2 : Reopens After Multiple COVID-19 Cases

SJKC Puay Chai 2 in Bandar Utama has been allowed to reopen, after multiple students tested positive for COVID-19!

Find out what’s going on, and whether you need to be concerned!

 

SJKC Puay Chai 2 : Reopens On 22 April 2021!

SJKC Puay Chai 2 just announced that they have been allowed to reopen on Thursday, 22 April 2021.

All classes will return to school, except for Class 2B, which is still under quarantine.

They also announced that all teachers and school staff underwent a PCR test on 15 April 2021, and they all tested NEGATIVE.

The school also asked that parents and guardians please DO NOT SEND their children to school, if :

  • colleagues (of parents and guardians) tested positive for COVID-19
  • parents and their family are on sick leave
  • any member of the family has a cough, fever or flu symptoms
  • any member of the family has symptoms
  • any member of the family underwent a swab test or is waiting to get one, or waiting for the results
  • family members of PUI (Patient Under Investigation) or PUS (Patient Under Surveillance).

 

SJKC Puay Chai 2 : Closed Over Multiple COVID-19 Cases!

On 7 April 2021, SJKC Puay Chai 2 in Bandar Utama announced that a student in the 2M class tested positive for COVID-19.

On 9 April 2021, they announced that another two students in the 2U and 5B classes also tested positive for COVID—19. They too were infected from outside the school.

On 11 April 2021, another two students (from the same family) tested positive for COVID-19.

All five affected classes were closed, and their students and teachers asked to quarantine at home.

However, on 14 April 2021, the District Health Office ordered that Puay Chai 2 be closed indefinitely.

  • the afternoon session on 13 April 2021 is suspended
  • the school will be closed from 14 April 2021 onwards
  • the district health office will notify the school when they are allowed to reopen.
  • online learning and teaching at home (PDPR) will begin on 14 April 2021.

Puay Chai 2 has suffered multiple COVID-19 cases despite sanitising the classes every day. A year ago, they shared these pictures and videos of how they sanitise their classrooms after a positive COVID-19 case.

To be frank, sanitising schools will not prevent COVID-19 cases, as the SARS-CoV-2 virus is transmitted through droplets.

So it is far more important for teachers and students to strictly wear their face masks and maintain good hand hygiene, since physical distancing is impossible.

 

SJKC Puay Chai 2 : Official Statement On COVID-19 Cases

Here is the official statement by SJKC Puay Chai 2 (in Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia) on their opening after multiple COVID-19 cases.

Autism + Special Needs Q&A With Dr. Rajini Sarvananthan

In support of Autism Awareness Month, we are sharing this exclusive Q&A session on autism and special needs with Dr. Rajini Sarvananthan!

May her knowledge and insight continue to help and inspire parents of children on the ASD spectrum, or with special needs!

Shopping Malls With COVID-19 Cases : Misleading!

A PowerPoint presentation on Klang Valley shopping malls with COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days has gone viral, but it is really misleading.

Find out what happened, and what the facts really are!

 

Shopping Malls With COVID-19 Cases : The Viral List

The PowerPoint presentation was prepared by Sensata Technologies Malaysia, apparently for their internal use.

It boasts that no Sensata Technologies Malaysia employee has tested positive for COVID-19, and included a list of shopping malls with COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days.

It appears to suggest that STM employees should not go to these shopping malls, or any shopping mall, to ensure they won’t get infected.

 

Shopping Malls With COVID-19 Cases : Misleading!

The list of shopping malls with COVID-19 cases was compiled by Sensata Technologies Malaysia based on the MySejahtera app.

The list accurately shows what MySejahtera reported, but the list is MISLEADING and here are the reasons why…

Reason #1 : KKM Confirmed That It’s Misleading

The Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) confirmed that this list is misleading, because of the reasons below…

Reason #2 : MySejahtera Does Not Show Cases For Specific Locations

The MySejahtera app allows you to look up specific locations, but it will NOT show the case numbers for any specific location.

It is not possible for anyone to use MySejahtera to find out that IKEA Damansara has 3 cases, for example.

MySejahtera will only show you the number of reported COVID-19 cases within a 1 km radius. That’s a 3.14 square kilometre area.

Reason #3 : MySejahtera Shows Cases In 1 KM Radius In Past 14 Days

The MySejahtera Hot Spot tracker feature only lists the number of reported COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days.

If you try it out now, you can search for Pavilion KL, and it will say,

There have been 804 reported case(s) of COVID-19 within a 1 km radius from your searched location in the last 14 days.

It cannot be used to confirm that Pavilion KL has 834 cases on 1 January 2021, and 804 cases on 2 January 2021.

What those numbers mean is that on 1 January 2021, the area surrounding Pavilion KL had 834 cases, and that dropped to 804 cases on 2 January 2021.

MRT Kajang Line : Transit Officer Positive For COVID-19!

Rapid Rail, the operator of the MRT Kajang Line, today confirmed that one of their transit officers tested positive for COVID-19!

Find out what happened, and what you should do if you were on the MRT Kajang Line recently!

 

MRT Kajang Line : Transit Officer Positive For COVID-19

On 25 October 2020, Rapid Rail announced that a transit officer (also known as the train operator) of their MRT Kajang Line tested positive for COVID-19.

This transit officer last worked on 21 October 2020, and tested positive yesterday, 24 October 2020. He is currently being quarantined in the Sungai Buloh Hospital.

Rapid Rail conducted a deep cleaning and disinfection of that transit officer’s work place according to MOH guidelines.

They also cleaned all of their MRT trains, according to existing protocol to sanitise them every night after they stop operating.

All other Rapid Rail employees who were identified as close contacts of the affected transit officer were placed under self-quarantine for 14 days, and asked to undergo COVID-19 testing.

According to the statement, both MRT and Rapid Bus continue to be safe to use. But passengers are reminded to strictly follow the SOP, including :

  • properly wearing a face mask at all times
  • maintaining good hand hygiene using a hand sanitiser
  • recording their body temperature, and
  • signing in the physical logbook, or using MySejahtera

 

MRT Transit Officer COVID-19 Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?

Since the MRT is “driverless”, there is little interaction between passengers and MRT staff, so the risk of infection is low.

In accordance with the Malaysia Ministry of Health guidelines, they will be performing contact tracing, and contacting those who came in close contact with the affected employee.

If you happened to be in close contact with the employee, you will be contacted and asked to undergo a screening test.

This infection reinforces the importance of contact tracing, and the MySejahtera mobile app which logs the movements of its users.

While public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use the MySejahtera mobile app, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.

Using the MySejahtera mobile app also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the outlet of any infectious particles.

But most important of all – we need to remember to always wear a face mask in public. Face masks have been proven to prevent the spread and reduce the risk of being infected.

 

COVID-19 : How To Keep Safe!

Here are a few simple steps to stay safe :

  • Avoid suspected cases or disease hotpots, like hospitals, if possible!
  • Avoid public events and crowds
  • Keep our hands clean with soap or hand sanitiser
  • Keep our homes, offices, vehicles, etc. clean
  • If you need to wear a surgical mask, make sure you put it on and remove it properly!
  • Wash your food with water (and soap) after purchase and before preparation

PJ Digital Mall : Closed For Cleaning After COVID-19 Exposure

The PJ Digital Mall is closing on 18 October 2020 for deep cleaning, after a second All IT Hypermarket employee tested positive for COVID-19!

Find out what happened, and if you need to be concerned about this new development!

 

PJ Digital Mall : One Employee Positive For COVID-19

At around 11:30 PM on 17 October 2020, PJ Digital Mall announced that a second All IT Hypermarket employee tested positive for COVID-19.

All IT Hypermarket had earlier announced that an employee at their SOGO KL outlet tested positive.

Both the SOGO KL and PJ Digital Mall cases are actually siblings from the same household, just working in different All IT Hypermarket outlets.

This second sibling (Staff B) last worked at the Digital Mall outlet on Friday, 16 October 2020, reporting to work in the morning and clocking out at 2 PM.

He was asymptomatic and went for a COVID-19 test on Saturday, 17 October 2020, and was diagnosed the very same day.

As a result of this positive test result, PJ Digital Mall will shut down on 18 October 2020, to disinfect and sanitise all areas inside their mall.

They will reopen the following day, on 19 October 2020.

They are also placing those in close contact with the affected staff under self-quarantine, and sending them to get tested.

 

PJ Digital Mall COVID-19 Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?

As per MOH guidelines, they should be performing contact tracing, and contacting those who came in close contact with the affected employee.

If you happen to be in close contact with the affected All IT Hypermarket employees at their PJ Digital Mall or SOGO KL outlet, you will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine as well as undergo a COVID-19 screening test.

These shopping mall infections reinforce the importance of contact tracing, and the MySejahtera mobile app which lets its users quickly and easily log their movements.

While shopping malls and all other public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use the MySejahtera mobile app, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.

Using the MySejahtera mobile app also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clear the branch of any infectious particles.

But most important of all – we need to remember to always wear a face mask in public. Face masks have been proven to prevent the spread and reduce the risk of being infected by COVID-19.
