Sometimes the heroes go unnoticed

The Movement Control Order and the country’s battle against the Covid 19 pandemic has seen the rise of the front liners in the medical services and security forces stepping up and putting their lives and those of their families on the line.

But the restriction on movement and the #StayAtHome campaign has seen the rise of these selfless unappreciated heroes on motorbikes – the food delivery riders from Foodpanda, Grabfood, Lalamove and other online food delivery service providers.

While the streets are devoid of traffic bar those attending to essentials and urgent matters, these are just about the only motorcycles roaming the streets, ensuring Malaysians are not left hungry, while themselves being at risk of infection.

Let’s give these boys a pat on the back and show them some appreciation.
