Plea from the Chief Executive Officer

KUALA LUMPUR 31 MARCH 2020 : COVID – 19 had dominated the headlines of newspapers worldwide since December 2019. In the last 2 months, it has taken the world by storm, and claimed tens of thousands of lives. WHO had now declared COVID – 19 a pandemic, meaning that it is now a pandemonium of worldwide proportions.

While almost a million people were affected by the illness, more than 100 Million people have been affected economically. More than USD1Trillion in deficits world wide, and almost RM100B in losses in Malaysia. COVID – 19 is an economic disaster, worsened by the Movement Control Order (MCO) that was rightly ordered in order to curb the spread of the infection. Many companies, mostly SMEs and even large Multinational companies were being forced to shutdown due to the infections

Having learnt from successes in Japan and Korea, and the failures in the USA, Italy and Spain, we know that the way forward is testing. The higher the number of people tested, the higher the likelihood of segregating those positives from the negatives, and stumping the spread of the virus

Magnitude Healthcare, as a Healthcare Service Provider, has taken upon ourselves to do the following :

· COST PRICE TESTING for Corporate and Community Screening

· Corporate & Community testing to increase the number of screened population, and reduce the overall workload of the public healthcare system, which is at its maximal capacity

· Drive through and Home sampling for PCR Testing
