“For the sake of our loved ones, our neighbours and those out there treating the infected, please stay at home.
“Also this is the time to spend time with your family, children and connect online with friends that you don’t have time. Let’s stay positive, stay safe and stay at home.” she added when contacted.

“I hope the people of Lembah Pantai will continue to stay home and take care of their health.
“Even if you need to go out, it’s only when necessary. Maintain social distancing. Practice good hygiene at all times to stop the spread,” he added.
Fahmi said he is trying to get more information on the figures from the ministry.
“Some extra information is important for me to plan for the future, since Lembah Pantai is a large constituency, with many different communities.”
He urged constituents who had attended the tabligh event in Seri Petaling between Feb 27 and March 1, to get tested.
“If you have the symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), please go to the nearest designated hospital and get checked. Don’t take any chances,” he said, adding that the public should not discriminate, sideline or think badly of those who had attended the tabligh event or those who have tested positive for Covid-19.
“I have the utmost confidence in the (Health Ministry), the Royal Malaysian Police, Kuala Lumpur City Hall, the Malaysian Armed Forces and other agencies in controlling the situation and to break the chain of this pandemic,” he added.
