Recently, a clip showing footage of a crowd swarming at a waterfall spot made its round on social media. The video has garnered attention of netizens on social media with many displeased with the situation as the crowd was seen not complying to the SOPs implemented by the government.
Singer and entrepreneur Fynn Jamal came forward to reprimand certain individuals who can be deemed as selfish for crowding a waterfall recreation area last weekend. According to Fynn, the community should use discretion and common sense because in a such crowded place, it is definitely hard to comply with SOPs or maintain social distance.
She added in a lengthy post on her Instagram that one should be aware of their surroundings and it is better to engage in activities in private and less crowded places to ensure the safety of family members especially children who are at higher risk to be infected. “Whatever activity that you want to do, use your common sense. If there’s no logic to maintain your distance or comply with the SOP, just go home,” the singer-songwriter remarked.
“I know this might sound cruel, but if you really want to do an activity, do it in a private place. It is a bit pricey, sure. But it could not compare with the price of your life,” she wrote. The “Arjuna Beta” singer also asked people to be patient and consider the risk of infection outside before thinking of going somewhere.
“If you can’t afford it, it’s okay. Be patient. Yes, it seems unfair when people with more money can afford to go out but those who do not have to be stuck at home, feeling bored. I know, I understand. But this is the only way. It’s really dangerous out there. It’s not worth it,” her Instagram caption read.
Fynn Jamal also stressed that even though a person has been completely vaccinated, it is certainly not a ticket to declare oneself immune to the Covid-19 virus. Her concerns are becoming more apparent as the rate of infection among children who have yet to be vaccinated is increasing each day.
The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has recently announced that Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya have transitioned to Phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) on Friday (10th September). Citizens are now allowed to travel in permitted areas in addition to being allowed to stay in hotels for those who have completed two doses of vaccine.

Nah kepada si p*kimak yg sibuk defend those who went to the waterfall.
1. Bukan tak boleh keluar, tapi pakailah otak sikit, if the place is crowded, fuck off je lah.
2. THIS is another issue, because nobody is monitoring/controlling the place, look at the aftermath. 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️ https://t.co/nVIaUScVMp

Influencer Ceddy also expressed his disgust at people who simply loitered rubbish at Sungai Pisang. Earlier, he stressed, “The issue ISN’T about how people should not go out at all, in fact, even I myself am craving for a little getaway BUT do it wisely, we talked about the importance of social distancing so why are people forming a huge crowd?”
