Greetings!

We understand your worries especially we’re now in the midst of coronavirus outbreak.

This virus spread through droplets from the respiratory tract. There’s risk of contracting this virus if the droplets get into the food after it was cooked and you consumed it. Hence, it is not advisable for positive individual to share food or any utensil they use.

You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.

After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/tanya/.

I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you to stay put at home as ordered by the authorities. With everyone’s cooperation, I hope we can conquer this outbreak before it get any worse. Thank you.
