KOTA BARU, Aug 24 — Sending patients who have recovered from Covid-19 at the Covid-19 Quarantine and Low-Risk Treatment Centre (PKRC) back to their homes is not the responsibility of the Ministry of Health (MOH), says Kelantan State Health Department director, Datuk Dr Zaini Hussin.

He however said the department would still assist the patient by providing ambulance services with the cooperation of several other agencies.

“The task of sending patients back to their homes is not the responsibility of MOH, but it is an initiative we provide at the PKRC with the cooperation of other agencies like the district office for ambulance services.

“It is not our job since they have recovered but we are still taking the responsibility to ease their movements,” he told reporters after visiting the Gelanggang Seni PKRC today.

Dr Zaini was commenting on a video which had gone viral on social media after a woman went “live” to express her anger when she was told to go home on her own from a PKRC here.

During her “live” broadcast, the woman claimed that it was the responsibility of MOH to send patients home from PKRC.

Dr Zaini also said they had investigated the video and concluded several aspects of the communication process could be improved to avoid any misunderstandings.

He said, patients are allowed to return home from the PKRC when they are free from the virus, which means they can return to their homes on their own using public transport such taxi and e-hailing.

“True, we hope to provide the privilege but the people must also know that health workers are dealing with thousands of patients.

“Apart from that we are also facing a shortage of health workers since they are offering their services to the people of Kelantan as well as other states,” he said. — Bernama

  1. We are preparing to rollout 756,000m2 of bioplastics in year 1,
    following the pilot machinery hass been developed.
    We are at our final stages and testing the bioplastics pilot machinery should be completed
    by mid-September, while our fertiliser side is already att
    full scqle production. We noticed that firms had been beginning to look
    at sustainability as a core situation in thjeir apparel
    production cycle. Secondly, we seriously need to have investors who are prepared to appear at this pproject from a long-term viewpoint and can invest in production assets that
    can scale to mewt demands rather than pondering of generating a
    fast flip. Startups need to have to be inventive
    and innovative, foster collaborative partnerships with other players, ass effectively as larger corporations,
    government agencies and investors. There’s also a toon of
    tech-associated startups in Malaysia startup now, so a lot off possibilities to
    function in the tech business, and I see the economy and
    jobs moving too tedh extra iin tthe years to
    come.
