Okay, seriously though, who is coming up with these rules and why were they not standardised? One person says something and another says something else. We as the people are honestly so confused!
So recently, there has been a case where a viral voice clip of a man claiming his father was fined RM1,000 for failing to register the MySejahtera app before filling up at a fuel pump despite wearing a face mask. That got a lot of people talking.
Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department deputy director DCP Mior Faridalathrash Wahid justified the fine saying that a petrol station is a public space with heavy human traffic, so it is compulsory for customers to wear a face mask, have their body temperatures scanned and check in using the MySejahtera app in order for the authorities to trace them.
Then suddenly, we’re now being told that it’s not compulsory to do so if we’re not entering the petrol station’s convenience store. Wait, what? Senior Minister for Security Cluster, Ismail Sabri Yaakob clarified the matter during yesterday’s Movement Control Order media briefing.
Minister Ismail pointed out that you don’t necessarily need to scan the MySejahtera QR code at the petrol station if you don’t intend to enter the station’s store and pay for your fuel by using credit or debit card through the payment machine on the petrol pump.
The only time you will need to scan if you are entering the store to use the restroom, buy items, or use the ATM. Other than that, there’s no need to scan if you’re just outside filling up your fuel tank. So I really hope this clears up any further confusion.
Covid-19, although a new virus, we’re almost at the end of 2020 so there should be a more systematic and effective way for everyone to be informed of these new rules. If you’re gonna come up with the rules, everyone should be informed what is and what is not okay cause a lot of us cannot afford to pay the fine. We can barely afford breakfast now.
