Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has urged the public to wait for “big news” which he will announce tonight after a meeting with all ministries and government agencies involved in handling the Covid-19 outbreak.
“I’ll announce today quite a big news, please just bear with me until this evening,” Muhyiddin said in a press conference at the Prime Minister’s Office in Putrajaya today.
He said the government views this problem with the utmost seriousness, especially now that “we are coming to the second wave of the problem”.
The Health Ministry has similarly asked the public to wait for an announcement from the prime minister tonight.
Earlier, Muhyiddin had also announced a series of expanded schemes under the economic stimulus package first presented on Feb 27, by then-interim prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
