Actress and TV host Janna Nick has taken to her social media to express her outrage following the rise of new positive Covid-19 cases on Thursday, 8th July. She also expressed her frustration over the current worrying situation of the Covid-19 pandemic in Malaysia.
Through her Instagram story post on Thursday, the “Melodi” host conveyed her disappointment regarding the increasing number of positive cases that did not show any sign of lessening despite a series of Movement Control Orders (MCOs) being implemented.
“Are you deliberately waiting for people to go on full rage? Malaysians, on the other hand, are still being patient and nice. As long as we keep endorsing the hashtag #RakyatTolongRakyat, the authorities will keep silent and not do their job. Can’t you people in power do your jobs right?” the actress remarked in one of her Instagram story posts.
“MCO, CMCO, RMCO! Cases in Selangor keep increasing to more than 4,000 positives daily and cars are already filling the road,” she added, “There is no need to update the number of daily cases anymore! There is no need for the restrictions. We have to just bear and get on with our lives facing the Covid-19 pandemic.”
She further commented that all the SOPs and plans implemented by the government, has not helped in dealing with the spread of the deadly virus. “The supposed plan doesn’t even work. It’s a waste of time. We can earn more money, but how can we retrieve back the time that we have lost?,” she stated.
She continued her posts by expressing her worries about the fate of the younger generation that have lost their opportunity to obtain a perfect education at an early age. “Our youth have lost their right to a perfect education. What will happen to our next generation? Not everyone can afford to send their children to school in France like you,” she wrote, hinting at a minister and his wife.
The actress also raised the issue of small business owners who had to bear the cost of their losses during the MCO period. She remarked in her post, stating that “How about the small business owners? They still need to pay salaries to their staff. Do you think they can sleep and eat well, while staff payment and wages have yet to be paid out?”
“If the cases drop by even one percent, Malaysians would understand and we can still be patient but it keeps on increasing. How much longer do you want to waste time?,” she said. She concluded her posts by uploading a video of her screaming to relieve the stress she is facing at the moment.
On Friday, 9th July, Malaysia recorded a total of 9,180 Covid-19 positive cases, bringing the total number of cases to 817,838.
