THE recent death of yet another young child from diphtheria, a disease that can be easily prevented by immunisation, is a national tragedy.We should ask ourselves some searching questions: When a young child dies from a preventable disease, whose responsibility is it?It is of course the parents who failed to vaccinate the child. These are not “bad” parents who intentionally want to harm their child, but there is no denying the fact that their reluctance to immunise the child caused his death. Were they unaware of the other children who died recently?There has been sufficient media coverage to know that in 2018, there were 18 cases of young children with diphtheria, and that five died. So why did they expose their child to such a risk?

So why do these parents take such a risky course of action?A certain group of people is also responsible for this child and other children’s death. This is the group that is very loud on social media and quick to give “expert” opinions but fail to be present to take responsibility when children die from easily preventable diseases.They are the alternative and complementary medicine practitioners and some medical doctors. They have brainwashed and misled parents. Religious sensitivities to them are more important than the lives of children.No one is denying the fact that vaccines have side-effects but any sensible review of historical and scientific data will show how vaccines have helped to control many lethal diseases that used to kill and damage thousands of children. The re-emergence of diseases long controlled in the past is due to these anti-vaccine practitioners.I want to ask everyone why we are not taking these anti-vaccine proponents to task. They are the ones who are primarily responsible for the death of the young boy in this latest case.

KUALA LUMPUR: Kumpulan kongsi gelap dipercayai menjadi pelindung kepada pendatang asing di kebanyakan pasar borong, terutama di Lembah Klang bagi memastikan perniagaan mereka ‘kebal’ daripada tindakan pihak berkuasa.Mereka dikatakan menguasai tapak niaga tidak berlesen di luar pasar borong utama serta mendakwa mereka mewakili persatuan peniaga dan penjaja tertentu.Di Pasar Borong Lama Selayang di sini, sekurang-kurangnya 80 peniaga warga asing dipercayai bernaung dengan kumpulan kongsi gelap ini sehingga mereka berupaya memonopoli tapak perniagaan haram di luar bangunan utama pasar.Siasatan wartawan BH ke atas beberapa peniaga asing di pasar borong Selayang lama mendapati mereka dikenakan ‘wang perlindungan’ atas nama sewa harian serendah RM50 bagi satu tapak.Malah, wang perlindungan yang dikutip setiap hari ada yang mencecah RM200 sehari bergantung kedudukan tapak yang biasanya lebih tinggi jika terletak di laluan utama ke pintu masuk pasar.Kongsi gelap mampu meraih antara RM120,000 hingga RM480,000 sebulan bagi satu pasar borong hasil sewa tapak haram dan kutipan wang perlindungan.

Kegiatan sejak 10 tahun lalu

Katanya, kegiatan itu sudah wujud lebih 10 tahun, namun masih berleluasa termasuk berselindung di sebalik nama persatuan yang tidak aktif.“Selain isu monopoli perniagaan pasar borong, peniaga asing turut dikesan mencuri bekalan elektrik dari surau sementara yang dibina di bawah jambatan berhampiran pasar...

PETALING JAYA: The total cost of taking over the highways in Malaysia may breach RM100bil, with the equity portion of the concessionaires’ companies forming a larger amount than the RM52bil worth of bonds owed by the highway companies.With 23 companies having issued RM52.83bil worth of bonds and sukuk as of May last year, analysts said the equity portion of any takeover is estimated to be between RM60bil and RM80bil, which would push the total cost to RM130bil.

They said the total cost of the takeover of highways would depend on which method of valuation is used in the acquisitions. The discounted cash flow method or the enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation could feature, like it did when Permodalan Nasional Bhd bought Silk Highway.Cost could, however, fall dramatically should the government flex its muscle in pushing through any deal with national interests in mind with the concession companies.“While the solution and content of the nationalisation exercise may be net positive, the term expropriation sends shivers down investors’ spine,” said an analyst.

The government announced on Saturday it had begun talks with Gamuda Bhd to buy the concession agreements of four highways as part of its promise to abolish tolls in stages.The Prime Minister’s Office said the four highways are Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong (LDP), Sistem Penyuraian Trafik KL Barat (Sprint), Lebuhraya Shah Alam (Kesas) and the Smart Tunnel.It is expected that negotiations with other companies are underway as KPMG is acting on behalf of the Malaysian Highway Authority. It was reported that Ernst & Young is working on a study on the tolled highways.
