Authorities, arrested a total of 15 people who breached the RMCO rules for visiting Karaoke, pubs, nightclubs, reflexology centre and massage parlour, these centres have yet to receive the green light to operate.
Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Senior Minister for Security claimed these individuals were apprehended during regular checks conducted by his officers. With most businesses already operating under their own SOP approved by MOH, there are still a small segment awaiting approval to resume, the reflexology and entertainment like clubs and cinema. However, we did not notice some of these places already opened for business catering to small groups.
The 15 have been remanded while some have been released after bail, what is considered to be a common practice in the past is now regarded a criminal offence, this is the new norm we live in. All these folks wanted was a relaxing massage after a stressful evening, enjoy some drinks with long lost friends and to sing out as a form or release, these acts taken for granted before is desperately needed to regain some form of sanity in this virus infected world.
Authorities, should regard them as therapy and recategorise these activities and give the common man a place to let go steam so to speak. Mind you, Roman counselors have been known to take a dip or a massage to calm themselves down.
