MAEPS Converted Into 600-Bed COVID-19 Hospital

On 28 March 2020, the Director General of Health Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah confirmed that MAEPS was being converted into a temporary COVID-19 hospital.

The conversion, which lasted 3 days, was part of their preparation for the anticipated third wave of cases in April.

“Let us prepare for the worst and hope for the best. It’s better to over-prepared than under-prepared, so we will use this as a model for how to utilise an indoor stadium in case we need it.

“The reason is, now we are seeing 150 to 200 cases a day. But if the surge is 1,000 cases per day, then we need to look for beds.”

MAEPS or Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang is a large exhibition venue located on 130 hectares of land belonging to MARDI, the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute.
