Life with Rona — Day 41

Up early to get working. Lunch and dinner was finished up yesterday’s fish briyani. Didn’t do a FlyProject workout, but 3 repetitions of Ping’s workout that I got from the Heineken Malaysia Instagram TV page. Much more fun. Work ended around 1.30am…

Malaysia’s Covid-19 situation: 5,820 (+40) total cases, 3,957 (+95) recoveries, 99 (+1) death toll. Only 37 patients are in ICU beds (17 on ventilators).

We claim to be wanting to do 22,000 Covid-19 tests next week. We are also seeing more hotels close down, e.g. Mercure Penang by Plenitude Bhd (public listed company), and even a hotel I’ve stayed at plenty of times (previously known as the Four Points by Sheraton Penang). It seems to be affecting several in Penang and Ipoh. We’ve also seen public listed companies like Sapura Energy cut management salaries by 50%, but worse, there will be a reduction in force, and also 5-45% pay cuts. Genting Malaysia did this before, as well.
