  1. let teach them with bullet instead of kept advising with no result of awareness of how serious the situation really are. Don't blame the government, blame yourself if that happen.

  2. To all the pilipinos in kuala Lumpur please stay at home, specially those who are undocumented, you are not in our country. God bless

  3. Omg!! Why so stubborn only 14days lock down la,stop whatever activities daily, adoiiii stupid la y'all! This virus very2 dangerous please la stay home!

  4. They so stupid..jogging now??? Malaysia government doing really good!!! Other country government never did like this…malaysian must follow their leader!!

  5. It's NOT okay. The virus stays on surfaces of most things for hours!!! You sweats when you jogged and you absolutely will touch things. Stay in. Most of the carriers do not have any symptoms during incubation periods.
    There's no place to go to VENT?? GO HOME!!!!

  6. Ey amoi arr don't be selfish can u? If u are The only one That get Infected then it's okay but U will spread the Freaking virus if u keep Being stubborn 🤦 aiyoo fikir lah sikit

  7. Hope all the people follow the instruction from KKM, ALWAYS KEEP CLEAN AND HYGIENE ALL THE TIME….PLEASE STAY AT HOME…..

  8. Lingam .
    Covid- 19 . Very post check screen test .
    Shopping center can started business . We cannot hope government .we have carrying on to job . We pay bills . House car student for school . We all never hopefully in Malaysia government .

  9. Ya'll can do home exercise, there's always an alternative but no u have to be salty about the move restrictions tho 🤦🏻‍♂️ you wanna have a curfew restriction next? Or a 30 days lockdown instead

  10. Pls learn from Italy and the UK mistake! See what happened. End up over crowded care centre to treat infected people
    Who are we Malaysian to be better then them??? 😱 😭😭

    It's because of the same mindset…taking it likely…still going out… jogging …shopping… it wud be the same people who will blame the government again later if they do contracted the covid-19. Blame yourself ok. Tak faham faham..😠

  11. If the virus turn people into zombies and spread through biting…malaysians will see how dangerous the situation…so they will understand when they see the effect with their own eyes….we are in same kind level of stay at home plis…build some gym inside…go out only for food or the most important…

  12. be like Philippines. they Quarantine the Whole METRO Manila. Infected is not that big. they also stopped the All Religion's mass

  13. UK caught Covid19 a month later than Malaysia already hundreds positive and a dozen deaths. Probably 10k unknown cos not tested. Malaysia still about 200 plus and only 2 died? UK government allocated £350b cos economy standstill. Read Guardian for global news, US 1 trillion dollars cos recession. Malaysia?

  14. you won't die not jogging or exercising for 2 or 3 months. are you guys even making any sense? somebody needs to tell you to getting into sense? what if this was airborne? are you going to give the same damn excuse? people are just ridiculous
