Frontliners in tears after witnessing public’s “tidak apa” attitude

By John Isaac

FRONTLINERS risking their lives to save other around the clock have expressed their frustration and disappointment towards the public for their “tidak apa” attitude towards the Covid-19 virus.

According to Sibu Division Disaster Management Committee (SDDMC) coordinator Dr Annuar Rapaee, he received numerous messages from frontliners after an incident where a huge crowd was seen queuing outside McDonald’s, Jalan Sanyan in Sibu yesterday.

During a Facebook live streaming session, Dr Annuar said they were there to apparently purchase the South Korean band inspired BTS meals.

“This is so embarrassing and upsetting. I have been bomb-barded with messages from frontliners expressing their anger and frustration over this incident.

“These frontliners do not even have time to eat as then tend to the increasing number of patients and are so upset looking at people’s attitude,” he said.

He urged the people to be more vigilant and take the pandemic seriously.

“Hospital beds are filling up fast and if each and everyone of us do not do our part, it will be a disaster,” he said.

He said some frontliners were in tears when they saw viral videos of the McDonald’s incident.

“I appeal to you all to please stay home, unless there is an emergency,” he added.
