KOTA KINABALU (24 March 2020) – Democratic Action Party (DAP) Member of Parliament for Kota Kinabalu Chan Foong Hin and his team handed out protective equipment to several Covid-19 frontliners around the Kota Kinabalu constituency.
Chan, who is also DAP Sabah Secretary, said that the protective equipment handed out by his office included face masks, gloves, sanitizers, as well as mistblowers. They are meant for fighting the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.
“I am pleased to inform you that six units of mistblowers and five boxes of gloves were handed over to Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (DBKK) in the past two days to assist with the preventing of the spread of Covid-19,” said Chan.
Chan said that the mistblowers are for disinfection purposes, and that he would like to thank Multielements Resources Sdn Bhd, a local Sabahan company that is also a member of Sabah West Coast Lorry Association, for donating them to DBKK during a time of need.
Chan further informed reporters that Patrick Chia, Chief Liaison Officer from his MP’s office, had yesterday personally delivered 90 bottles of sanitizers to the Karamunsing police station. Five more bottles of sanitizers and five boxes of gloves, each box containing 50 pairs, were also delivered to the Kota Kinabalu traffic police station next to the iconic Atkinson Clock Tower in town.
Another five boxes of gloves and five bottles of sanitizer were also delivered to the Jabatan Perkhidmatan Kebajikan Am Sabah near Jalan Sembulan for the use of caregivers for those who are homeless.
“On behalf of DAP Sabah, I would also like to hereby take this opportunity to thank all of our Covid19 frontliners (doctors, nurses, policemen, enforcement officers, etc) for their hard work in the battle against Covid-19,” said Chan.
“I would like to urge everyone to keep calm and continue to stay at home until the end of the Movement Control Order so as to prevent getting infected by the Covid-19 coronavirus.”
