KOTA KINABALU: Kadamaian State Assemblyman Datuk Ewon Benedick expressed his appreciation to all the frontliners for their hard work in combating the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic since the first quarter of this year has affected the state on various ways.

"The people's economy has been affected, infrastructure development is hampered, previous norms have changed. I welcome the Head of State’s mandate that we all need to work together in order to address the impact of this pandemic.

"On behalf of the Kadamaian people, I would like to thank Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, the Director General of National Health and all health frontliners for working hard to address the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I would also like to thank all fronliners from various teams, volunteers and philanthropists who have helped the people during this health crisis. Their contributions and sacrifices are very valuable,” he said at the State Legislative Assembly sitting here, on Monday.

Ewon added that the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) has affected thousands of people in the state and now soliciting government sympathy, especially daily necessities such as food baskets and other related assistance.

“When the follow-up CMCO is extended, many are unable to continue their activities for their source of income.

“People who are affected and need the help of food baskets are not only those listed under e-Kasih or involved in the mandatory quarantine order but the villagers whose areas are also involved in strict control orders.

"Many are faced with the stigma of worrying about dealing or working outside the home and choosing to stay home as advised by the government," he said.
