Despite alarming growth in COVID-19 cases over the past month...despite warnings for those who oppose MCO Phase 2 laws...despite reports of punishment for law breakers...there are still people who just don't care about safety (of themselves and others) and rules implemented to stop the spread of the virus.
Over the weekend, 19 youngsters were arrested for hosting a private party in Kajang -- and we dare say that they deserve what they got.
“Inspections at the residence located on the 15th floor found that 14 men and five women in their 20s and 30s were enjoying music and drinking in the living room."
"Initial investigations revealed that the home was being rented on a daily basis by the owner of one of the individuals for a fee of RM140 per day,” says Kajang district police chief Assistant Commissioner Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yussof.
All 19 of these law breakers were charged under Section 6 (1) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 and will be kept in Kajang District Police Headquarters (IPD) till 7 APRIL 2020 for further investigation.
We're not trying to be being cruel here...
I mean we get it...MCO sucks, but wouldn't staying Coronavirus-free till the end of the MCO be better?
...then you can party with your friends OPENLY.
We continue to encourage everyone, youngsters included, to abide by the law and #JustStayHome.
Stay out of trouble and hopefully you may even save your own life and the lives of your friends.
