Smoking banned in private sector

Such a good news to hear today when the Health Ministry has decided to enforce the smoking ban at work places and offices in the private sector that are installed with central air-conditioning systems.

The inclusion of smoking ban on private sectors offices and work places would raise the total number of places designated as no smoking areas to 21.

Earlier 19 areas, including hospitals/clinics, public lifts and toilets, air-conditioned restaurants, public transport, government premises, educational institutions, petrol stations, Internet cafes and shopping complexes, were designated as no smoking areas.

Those who lit up in non-smoking zones risked being fined up to RM10,000 or two years' imprisonment.

I am of one very glad the Health Ministry has further its enforcement. Bravo!
