Chinese posturing as kindest and most Rohingya-caring

Home Minister Hamzah Zainudin said yesterday it is arrogant of refugees (Rohingya) to go around declaring “I have a UNHCR card”.

Sinchew digging ‘pendatang’ hole ever deeper

I mentioned that the Sin Chew editorial published yesterday was worth reading, mainly because it had Rohingya and Vietnamese boat people on its radar.

Regular readers of my blog would, of course, be aware that I’ve been covering Rohingya extensively and I’ve also brought up the topic that Vietnamese boat people were actually ethnic Chinese. Continue reading “Sinchew digging ‘pendatang’ hole ever deeper”

The figures are sourced from a 17 Nov 2020 research paper in The Lancet titled ‘Clinical characteristics and risk factors for severe Covid-19 infections in Malaysia: A nationwide observational study’.
