Lack of SOP compliance captured at UM Medical Centre! #en

Location: University Malaya Medical Centre (PPUM)

Scanning the MySejahtera code wherever we go has become a common routine for us Malaysians. Not scanning it means getting slapped with a RM10,000 fine and we’ve already seen big names such as Najib and Mahathir being guilty of this.

What if there’s no one monitoring whether the members of the public are checking-in using MySejahtera and getting their temperatures scanned? That’s exactly what’s been happening at the University Malaya Medical Centre (PPUM).

As seen from the video below, members of the public can be seen zooming past the entrance and blatantly breaching the SOPs. To make matters worse, there was no one there to monitor the people entering, meaning that any contact tracing as well as classification of risk-assessments can be difficult if anyone entering the building is found to be tested positive.

One man was even seen casually using his palm to scan his temperature, despite the MOH’s advice to scan the forehead instead. It’s surprising, as we’ve been dealing with this pandemic for over a year now, and even KKM has mentioned that scanning with other parts of the body are not effective nor an accurate method of measurement.

We the rakyat often criticise high-profile ministers for violating the SOPs but it is evident that many members of the public are doing the same as well. We should all strive to be better, not only for ourselves, but also for those around us and even for the sake of Malaysia.

Just today, Malaysia recorded 7,857 new cases alone, the highest ever number recorded to date. Many mistakes have led us down this road, there’s no better time than now for us to wake up and start making the pandemic our priority. Let’s all come together to stamp out Covid-19.

We at Newswav urge everyone to adhere to the SOPs and to stay safe especially during this critical period of the pandemic.
