A seven-month-old boy and a 74-year-old woman are the latest victims of the influenza A(H1N1) infection, raising the death toll in the country to 64.
The government, through the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture should do more to help alert the people about the virus.
Both Liow Tiong Lai and Rais Yatim should place their top priority on combating the spread of the virus and stop the death toll from climbing. Liow should let his president, Ong Tee Keat, handle the PKFZ fiasco on his own. Liow is needed to show more leadership at the Health Ministry.
Rais should lay down his obsession with Internet censor and 1Malaysia and allow more media time to help educate Malaysians about H1N1 and ways to protect themselves.
