When the government calls for total lockdowns full movement control order (FMCO) v3.0, I follow, to make sure the government can execute it. But after 3 days, I notice, and just like our respectful Dr. Mahathiar in one of the online media video expressions, we all expect total lockdowns, where suppose like round 1 of lockdowns, the street, no car and people.
But as everyone knows, these are the most partial lockdowns, not sure where to go wrong, the execution or maybe due to the government wanting to please both sides, so it ends up executing this hybrid. The result, let’s see how it goes. For me, even the company already got the MITI approval letter to operate, but to respond to government calls, we inform them of the lockdowns and stay at home for the 2 weeks, to follow government calls.
From the readings, the rise of the new Vietnam variant mix of India and UK, it now spread quickly and claims can be spread via the air. Really this is something worth close looking with, since this will break all the existing ways to contain and break the COVID-19 pandemic chain of spread.
Everyone knows lockdowns are two edged swords, the longer and more frequently we use it, the more economic impact it will make. You need to adopt a holistic approach, once the factory is closed down or shut down, it does not matter for reboot, a lot of people are jobless and unemployment will rise. I saw some people interpret the figure based on published government figures, they forget and underestimate how many are not reporting and follow business shutdown procedures. It has a lot of figures that can not be captured in the official figure, you need to be in the field to understand that.
As I recall, I was driving to a new part of the city area, the street scene I saw, mostly already empty or put advertisements to look for tenants in retail business and districts. That is before we call for FMCO v3.0 yet.
Anyway, what matters most, everyone take care of your own and your family, be safe. The next-normal is not really coming, since the new COVID-19 variant is coming up one after another.
