If there’s ever an urgent need for any of you reading this to travel to other states here in Malaysia, you may get the permission at the closest Police Station where you are required to fill out a particular document (soon to be provided to all the police stations across the country) as to why there’s an urgent need for you to travel to your destinations (health complications, families to take care of, etc.).
Those planning to travel to Sabah or Sarawak might face a whole different issue as the state’s government might enforce mandatory quarantine periods for those travelling or even deny the air travel altogether in the effort to stop this very contagious virus.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who are facing hardship not just here in Malaysia but everywhere else around the world. Together, we can beat this IF we take proper measures to ensure that we stop the spread of the Coronavirus or COVID-19.
