Uh oh, but, but.... Pateur tested, like 20 people.
PETALING JAYA: The health ministry has tonight confirmed that an 83-year-old American woman tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of cases detected in Malaysia to 22.
She was one of the passengers of a cruise ship that docked in Cambodia on Friday. The 1,500 passengers on the m.v. Westerdam disembarked at Sihanoukville port after the ship had been rebuffed by Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines and the US territory of Guam.
She is reportedly in stable condition and is being treated at the isolation ward at the Sungai Buloh Hospital.
If there is one there are more like the Japanese ship.
Also if she was among the first people to disembark she probably hugged all the ministry people and customs officers that were ordered to not wear protective gear.
And don't we still have over 1000 people between PP and SHV from that ship right?
I am rather pissed at the way the government is handling the virus here.
Hopefully is some high official gets sick and croaks they will take more serious measures to protect the country. Might be too late, or might not be due to the lack of elderly and hot weather, still it's very virulent and easy to spread.
I am quite sure it is already spreading here especially considering that among the 3000 people from Whuan and the people that the previous cases met they only tested 100 individuals.
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - An 83-year-old American woman who had been a passenger on a cruise ship that docked in Cambodia has tested positive for the new coronavirus on landing in Malaysia, health authorities said on Saturday.
The American woman flew to Malaysia on Friday from Cambodia along with 144 others from the ship, the Malaysian health ministry said in a statement. The woman’s husband had tested negative, it said.
The MS Westerdam, operated by Carnival Corp unit Holland America Inc, docked in the Cambodian port of Sihanoukville on Thursday after being shunned by five countries on fears that passengers could be carrying the virus.
The Westerdam, carrying 1,455 passengers and 802 crew, spent two weeks at sea. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-chin ... SKBN2090IW
I used to wonder if I ended up in the wrong parallel universe. Now I'm wondering how many times I fucked up in previous lives in order to get here.
Brilliant. The MoH say that they did proper tests (20 in total, which were flown by helicopter to PP and came back in hours), and suggest that Malaysia should do another test, because maybe the test in KL got it wrong.
Bringing the news a few hours or days before the other channel, or a few minutes after. You stay classy, nah, Cambodia.
I remember watching on TV in the early 80's several of those British scaremongering series about the virus leaking out of the lab, and one month later following the few survivors (like 500 in the whole of the U.K.). Now suddenly they have come true. The truth eventually comes out in many cases, like Tricky Dick experienced, so maybe the 100 residents left in PP will learn (in 30 years time) the true origins of this Whoopla (WuHan Out Of control PLAgue).
But nevertheless we now have the virus out. It seems it can't be contained and we'll just have to accept that it will spread across the globe and infect hundreds of millions of people. The world economy will implode due to the debt bubbles not being serviceable with the consequential bursting but I guess a country like Cambodia where not much has happened in a few hundred years will survive like it always has.
'Murrica och the E.U. will fare far worse.
