PUTRAJAYA, March 16 — Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today called for calm, reassuring Malaysians that there is enough food for all, amidst reports of panic buying in parts of the country in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.

“Buy what is necessary, stop what is unnecessary, and we will ensure that food is available for you at all times,” Muhyiddin said.

He said that the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry (KPDNKK) will ensure there is enough supply for all, and advised against panic buying.
