Visit Malaysia You May Catch Exotic Diseases, Malaysia Truly Infected!

Please visit Malaysia, but take precautions and be aware that:

Malaysia currently has outbreaks of leptospirosis, meningitis, viral acute pericarditis, and recently has had outbreaks of other diseases such a cholera, what is happening, it seems obvious that the health care system and standards of sanitation and hygiene are rapidly deteriorating in 21st Century Malaysia.

These are a few vexing questions:

Is the primary health care system in Malaysia failing?

Are the local town and city councils not doing their job, with respect to providing efficient sanitation and waste disposal facilities?

Is the basic education system flawed?

Are the people of Malaysia ignorant, or perhaps apathetic, or lackadaisical, about the need to be civic conscious?

Do some Malaysians, and immigrant workers, lack the basic knowledge about personal hygiene and cleanliness?


Has the Malaysia now been well and truly cursed?

One can but wonder about the latter!

But the answer to the early questions must surely be a resounding YES.

What is next, outbreaks of Coxsackie A & B virus?

Malaysia already has increases in the number of cases of Malaria, Dengue haemorrhagic fever and Chikunkunya, and Typhoid.

This letter, from the Malaysia Today web site, in some ways, hits the nail on the head, it is entitled:

'Malaysia’s public health nightmare may already have begun and could explode at any time. The signs are there.'
