#Covid - 19, @DrAdhamBaba & his team has done a fantastic job for Malaysia

On the 9th of March 2020, Dr. Adham Baba was appointed the new Health Minister of Malaysia. His appointment correlated with the start of the Covid - 19 pandemic crisis in Malaysia. Upon his appointment as the new Health Minister, the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) welcomed Dr. Adham Baba and his deputies and noted that both Dr. Adham and his deputy, Dr. Noor Azmi are trained doctors who had worked in the Malaysian healthcare system. In addition, MMA believed this will be a plus point and beneficial in policy-making of our nation's healthcare system [1]. 

Fast forward to 4th of April 2020, the Health Ministry, with support of the civil servants and also with the guidance and decision making of the Health Minister and his two deputies have shown tremendous result in combating the Covid - 19 virus in the country. Malaysia has one of the highest number of recovery rates throughout the world and our best practices are being sough after by countries worldwide as they also try to curb the spread of the Covid - 19 virus. 

Success Stories 

We at #KLChronicle take cognizant of the success of our very own Health Ministry. For example, we take note of the fantastic achievement by Dr. Adham Baba and his team where it took the government only three (3) days to transform the exhibition halls of the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park (Maeps) into a gigantic temporary makeshift hospital for Covid-19 patients [2]. 

What is more interesting is that the hospital, which is the brainchild of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, can accommodate a maximum of 604 patients. It was set up to ease congestion at gazetted Covid-19 hospitals by accepting low risk patients who only show mild symptoms of the virus.

The Health Ministry and other government agencies, such as the police and army, rolled up their sleeves and worked day and night to ensure the project was completed within the stipulated time. 

It has to be noted that the MAEPS temporary hospital was built to complement the 40 already gazetted hospitals to treat Covid-19. Basically, the government wants to ease the congestion at normal hospitals so that the front liners there can focus on patients that needs urgent care and others who are low risk patients can be moved to somewhere else and be taken care of.

We at #KLChronicle also were made aware that the facilities are fully air-conditioned and each patient will be provided a single bed and two pillows, a drawer, and a small study table for them to store their belongings. The centre is also equipped with WiFi, televisions and computers.

Other medical facilities are also available at the premises, such as a pharmacy, X-ray machine, pathology laboratory, occupational health and safety services, and a dietician.

The hospital also provides a safe working environment for medical staff and nurses, as they will have special working rooms separated from the other areas.

All this was done in a space of only 3-4 days and within a month of Dr. Adham Baba appointment as the Health Minister. 

Kudos to Dr. Adham Baba and his team again for putting the effort and demonstrating fantastic leadership and responsibility in ensuring that we can fight this Covid - 19 pandemic as best as we can. 

Thank You!

P/S: The second part of the success story will be published tomorrow! 😉

BRICS Nations Creating BRICS Pay As Cloud Platform Accessible Via Smartphone To Avoid US Dollar Trade. Good bye US Dollar..

Do you know 'exactly' why the 5G and Huawei smartphone ban in USA.!?

Yess this is tool to make gateaway payment without using Dollar transation. At the same time, BRICS Pay will increase the popularity of national payment systems, which are gradually replacing Visa and MasterCard.
Visa & Mastercard will sailed away from this new system.

China’s Huawei telecommunications corporation, together with the UnionPay payment service, is launching its own system in Russia: Huawei Pay. Russia will become the second country after China where Huawei Pay will function.

This is being seen as a major step on the path to de-dollarization and a de-coupling from the current US controlled global banking system.

The BRICS grouping of countries, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa are creating a single payment system, BRICS Pay, as part of the drive to establish a common system for retail payments and transactions between the member countries.

These nations, all among the worlds leading and most powerful emerging markets, plan to introduce a special cloud platform, which will connect their national payment systems.

An online wallet will be developed with access to these payment systems, which will also include mobile apps similar to Apple Pay, which can be installed on smartphones for purchases in any of the five BRICS countries, regardless of which currency the payment and the money in the account of the buyer are denominated in.

Five BRICS countries to online wallets, which will offer them the ability to pay using a smartphone.

Noticeable in Southeast Asia, and Russia where the Chinese system UnionPay is the leader; in 2015 it surpassed Visa in terms of total operations. UnionPay has already issued over 6 billion cards.

This means that nationals of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa will be able to use their own national currencies as a direct basis of exchange for external payments.

China and Russia in particular have been highly critical of the United States defacto use of global payments systems, which have been used as trade and sanctions weapons.

Either inhibit or punish nations whose polices do not fit with those of Washington. Both have been actively seeking for some time now to de-dollarize their trade, and the BRICS Pay system is a major step in that direction..!!

Wake up Malaysia..!! This is a time Malaysia should joint BRICS member actively to become role model in ASEAN country to redollarisation transation among members in Southeast Asia.

This is a time make World War in US Dollar. USA will bangkrupt nation without Dollar..
