2020 has been a tough year for the world – we’re now living a new normal which includes wearing face masks everyday, queuing up in shopping lines, getting our temperature checked everywhere we go, among other safety precautions.
But, as the world readjusts, brands are realigning their efforts to make sure families meet the new norms. So, here are two of the latest debuts and initiative that cater to the new norms.
1. Korea’s Dr Clo brings sterilisation devices to Malaysia

Additionally, it is harmless to infants, the sick and the elderly – the product is also commonly used in nursing homes and aged care facilities.
Dr. Clo’s debut in Malaysia comes at the right time, where there is a greater consciousness of the need to sterilise, disinfect and deodorise air in living spaces within homes, as well as in private vehicles. Dr Clo has is now available on the shelves of selected pharmacies and via e-commerce platforms.
These multi-purpose patented portable sterilisation sticks are customised for use in various aspects of modern lifestyles.

Safety precautions to take:
Although our government has implemented the Recovery Moment Control Order (RMCO) and the economy is in the midst of reopening in stages, families are now free to travel interstate and weekends are now no longer restricted to the confines of your home.
However, what we cannot ignore is the fact that coronavirus still exists and ensuring you and your family adhere to the new norm helps the nation in avoiding any further spread of this outbreak.
Here are some key pieces of advice, besides wearing a mask, from the World Health Organisation (WHO) to remember when going out:
- Wash your hands regularly: Wash your hands thoroughly with an alcohol-based hand rub or with soap and water. This will kill viruses that are on your hands.
- Social distancing: Maintain at least one metre between yourself and others. When someone coughs, sneezes or speaks they spray small liquid droplets from their nose of mouth which may contain the virus. If you stand too close, you may breathe in those droplets.
- Avoid crowds: In crowds, you may be in close contact with people and it will be difficult to maintain your distance.
- Avoid touching your face: Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. This is because hands pick up viruses and you can transfers these viruses to your eyes, nose or mouth which allows the bacteria to enter your body.
- Stay home if you are sick: If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, please seek medical attention. If you have minor symptoms such as a cough, headache or mild fever, stay home until you recover. If you need to leave the house, wear a mask.
