All healthcare providers must maintain highest standard in infection control, says MMA
PETALING JAYA: All healthcare providers must maintain and adhere to the highest standards of infection control that is already in place to protect themselves in the line of duty in caring for their patients, says Dr N. Ganabaskaran .The Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) president said the healthcare providers - doctors, pharmacists, nurses, assistant medical officers, lab technologies and support staff - must take care of themselves at all times in reference to the four confirmed cases of Wuhan novel coronavirus (nCoV) in Malaysia. "MMA also urges the public to only get updates and information concerning the cases in Malaysia from the statements released by the Health Ministry and other relevant ministries through the media. "The public should not share unsubstantiated information that may create unnecessary fear and panic among the people. Advice by the ministry on precautions must also be taken seriously," he said in a statement on Sunday (Jan 26). Now is the time for all to place our trust in the government in handling this complex situation, he added. "We have full faith that it is being handled well by the Health Ministry under the leadership of Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad and that the government is doing its best in carrying out all necessary measures," Ganabaskaran said.
