As instances continue to rise, the Malaysian government has been questioned about why it removed emergency Covid laws.

Malaysia has reported over a million cases and 8,000 deaths so far, but experts warn that the true numbers are likely to be far higher due to the low testing rates.


Hospitals are overcrowded and overloaded, with patients reclining on chairs and sharing oxygen cylinders in recent photographs.

A state of emergency is also in effect throughout the country, which will end on August 1st and will not be extended.

Opposition leaders claimed they were unaware of the annulment, which occurred last week, and asked to know what influence it will have on the general population.


"Why weren't we notified? Who made the decision? "During a parliamentary session on Tuesday, those questions were asked by Democratic Action Party deputy chairman Gobind Singh Deo.

People who violated movement restrictions could be penalized under these emergency ordinances.


Malaysia is currently registering over 14,000 cases each day, with a high of 207 deaths on Tuesday. Patients have been turned away from hospitals, and even those who are admitted are not assured a bed.
