Speech by M.Kula Segaran on the occasion of launching of basic medical check up and awareness services campaign in Ipoh
Malaysia has done a remarkable job in containing the Covid 19 pandemic in comparison to other countries who are much developed.
Inspite of this success it is vital for Malaysians not to be complacent,and learn from the new spike of Covid 19 cases in other countries.
According to medical professionals the covid 19 related death rates are higher among people with pre-existing illness and those who are in the margins of society who cant afford medical check ups.
In this context it is vital that Malaysians with pre -existing illness follow a schedule medical check up with commitment to ensure pre-existing illness like diabates and hypetension are kept under control.
Those who feel they are healthy should also go for frequent medical check ups as a preventive measure.
Keeping this in mind , Team
would be launching a basic medical check up process for Ipoh residents with the presence of a doctor.
We have been providing consistent basic services to our constituents over the years and this new medical check up and awareness campaign are in addition to that.
We hope in a small way we can assist people to be aware of the current medical condition and to take necessary follow up action.
Health is wealth and all efforts must be streamline to assist the B40 and the less fortunate.
Team Ipoh barat is commited to make this medical project inclusive to all irespective of race and religion.
