AS an appreciation for the dedicated services of the frontliners in battling Covid-19 pandemic, Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow today handed over Covid-19 supplies to the Muntri Street Health Clinic.
Chow presented 17 sets of face masks, hand sanitisers, hand soaps and thermos flasks to Dr Kuldip Singh Pretam Singh, who is the clinic’s medical officer and person-in-charge, in a brief handover ceremony.
“It is our aim to appreciate those frontliners, who are working tirelessly during this Covid-19 pandemic.
“I believe that other elected representatives are also doing their part to serving their constituents during this time.
“The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (NIP) is progressing smoothly by getting the people to be vaccinated. In a few days’ time, 90% of our adult population in the country will be fully vaccinated.
“However, we still need to take extra precaution and remain vigilant as we are not out of the woods yet.
“Everyone needs to play our responsibilities well and strictly adhere to the relevant standard operating procedures (SOPs).
“Lastly, we hope that our presence here will be an encouragement to the frontliners,” said Chow, who is also Padang Kota assemblyman.
Muntri Street Health Clinic is located in the Padang Kota constituency.
Dr Kuldip Singh said he appreciated the contribution by the chief minister.
“We sincerely thanked Chow and state for their concern rendered to us.
“We are very honoured to receive the supplies as they are very helpful to us,” he said.
Also present were Lau Keng Ee, who is Chow’s special affairs officer in Padang Kota, and staff members from the service centre.
