No wonder A (H1N1) cases are on the rise

I WAS made to understand, through media reports, that health screening has been put in place at all entry points into the country. To my disappointment, this is not true!

Last Sunday, my colleagues and I returned from Singapore via the Second Link. At the Tuas checkpoint, we cleared Immigration and Customs. However, there was no health screening on the thousands who entered Malaysia via the checkpoint.

This was in total contrast with what we experienced when we entered Singapore. The authorities there did their parts right.

The Malaysian authorities need to buck up or we will be faced with more people coming down with the A (H1N1) influenza.

Even at Tuas (Johore) checkpoint where Immigration and Customs are supposedly equipped with the neccesary screening aparatus and yet "there was no health screening on the thousands who entered Malaysia (from Singapore) via the checkpoint". as revealed by MH. What can we expect from the various points of entry in Tawau (Kalabakan) and Sandakan where there are daily entries of Indonesians and Filipinos respectively? Are we doing enough to prevent the spread of A (H1N1) influenza or "Swine Flu" in Sabah?
