Dear Travellers, Travel & Media Partners,
In the wake of the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-2019), we would like to bring to your attention the latest updates on the travel situation in Malaysia:
TUESDAY, 07 APRIL 2020
Dear Friends of Malaysia,
We acknowledge this is the challenging time for us to face the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as tourism industry is one of the hardest hit.
With travel restriction imposed, this could have serious repercussion on the economy. But let us show our solidarity and be more responsible by putting people first.
Together, we must cooperate with health authority and support recovery measures for our industry to rebound.
In Malaysia, our medical frontliners are working tirelessly in battling second wave of pandemic COVID-19 throughout this Movement Control Order (MCO).
As of April 6, the total number of recovered and discharged patients is increasing tremendously, soaring up to 1,241 cases compared with 159 cases, two weeks before (23 March 2020).
This shows our government's utmost commitment and readiness to combat the growing number of reported cases amid coronavirus outbreak as it now surpassed one million of confirmed cases worldwide.
The fact that our Health Director-General, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah has joined global coalition to accelerate COVID-19 clinical research in resource-limited settings, reflected the quality of our healthcare expertise on the international scene.
Our government is also committed to take pre-emptive measure by setting up the Quarantine and Treatment Centre for low-risk COVID-19 patients, under coordination of National Disaster Management Agency.
Not to mention, many organizations and government agencies have ramped up their efforts to contain the infection by sanitizing public amenities including hotels, banks and petrol stations.
Not only the assistance rendered by our universities and non-governmental organizations, Malaysian designers also lend their hands in sewing the much needed personal protection equipment (PPE) gowns for our medical front line workers.
In a meantime, since current situation might not be the best time to travel in Malaysia, let us hope for a better tomorrow. We truly understand that our traveller's priority is to stay safe, secure and healthy.
From pristine beaches to the breathtaking islands and rich tapestry of culture, Malaysia has it all, thus keep dreaming of your favourite destinations in Malaysia.
