Battling COVID-19 is Muhyiddin’s greatest failure, ain’t his biggest success
“Malaysia lost control of the COVID-19 pandemic when the Perikatan Nasional (PN) was power-greedy and forced the holding of the Sabah state general election in September 2020”
(Focus Malaysia) – RETIRED DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang has branded as “utter rubbish” the recent claim of Bersatu Youth chief Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal that Malaysia lost control of the COVID-19 pandemic because the then Pakatan Harapan (PH) administration made the mistake in February 2020 by being slow in barring tourists from risky countries.
“Malaysia lost control of the COVID-19 pandemic when the Perikatan Nasional (PN) was power-greedy and forced the holding of the Sabah state general election in September 2020,” asserted the veteran lawmaker and former Iskandar Puteri MP in his latest blog.
“We are in an era where there are people who believe it is possible to make a wrong into a right. This is most apparent in the social media, as lately there has been in circulation WhatsApp of past events passing off as current events.
“In the modern era of information technology, it is easier to try to rewrite history and whitewash the sins of the past.”
Dishing out the truth to refresh the memory of people brainwashed by the untruth, Kit Siang who was a major critic of the then ‘backdoor’ government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, pointed to the very fact that in the National Day month of August 2020, Malaysia had 364 COVID-19 cases and two deaths from the pandemic.
“But in the National Day month of August 2021, Malaysia had more than 630,000 COVID-19 cases and more than 7,400 deaths – an exponential increase of 17,000 times for the number of COVID-19 cases and more than, 3,700 times the COVID-19 deaths!” claimed then former Opposition leader.
