Is the Malaysian government expecting to see 10k to 20k Covid-19 deaths, asks Kit Siang


PETALING JAYA: Democratic Action Party (DAP) advisor Lim Kit Siang (pix) has posed a question on Twitter concerning the number of potential casualties from Covid-19 infections.

Making comparisons to the number of expected deaths in the US, Lim asked, “As we are one-tenth of USA population, is the Malaysian government expecting some 10,000-20,000 deaths from the Covid-19 pandemic as the American authorities are expecting 100,000 to 200,000 to die in the pandemic?”

Yesterday, a US government official from the White House Covid-19 Task Force said that the country can expect to see 1,000,000 infections with 100,000 to 200,000 deaths.
