During the Movement Control Order imposed by the Government of Malaysia, the best thing for us to do is remain calm at all times.
The partial lockdown, beginning from 18 March, is to curb the spread of #COVID19. There is no need to worry or panic because all business premises will close except for essential services such as supermarkets, wet markets, grocery shops, and convenience stores.
What is ‘Social Distancing’?
The idea is to maintain a distance between you and other people.
Moreover, the Government of Malaysia has already advised Malaysians to practise social distancing or staying at least one metre apart from each other to help slow the spread of #COVID19.
Washing hands could be a powerful weapon against #COVID19. It could be far more effective against germs than you might realize.
Coronaviruses, like COVID-19, are encased in a lipid envelope, which is basically a layer of fat. Soap can break that fat apart and make the virus unable to infect you.
Not only that, soap makes skin slippery so that with enough rubbing, you can pry germs off and rinse them down the drain.
Petrosains, The Discovery Centre and XPLORASI-Petrosains Gift Shop will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED from Wednesday, 18 March 2020 until further notice. The closure is in line with the Movement Control Order imposed by the Malaysian Government to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff.Read More
