We urge all Sarawakians to be united to fight against Covid-19 and we must take the fight against Covid-19 seriously. The state government can't do much without the help and coperation of citizens.
In order for us to beat this Covid-19, Parti Bumi Kenyalang urged the 12th Sarawak Elections to be deferred or postponed. This is because we can't take risk because lives of the people are more important than elections. As it is now, we don't see the situation will improve soon because new variants keep on appearing and they are more dangerous now.
The effectiveness of the vaccine is unknown and we have heard many people suffered side effects and even death after vaccination. With cases reaching over 10,000 cases per day now, it is not something we can take lightly.
It is a sad thing that hospital staff is over worked and we do not have enough staff, medicines, hospital beds and equipment to effectively fight Covid-19. This situation is expected to get worse in coming months with resignations of medical staff who are tired of their job and who are not given permanent job by the Health Ministry or authorities. With these problems faced by the government, postponement of elections is wise
We must all have in our minds that, all people are Covid-19 positive unless proved otherwise. If we don't have this awareness, we would be complacent and will keep ourselves from social distancing and stay at home
Please stay safe
