Mental health experts in Malaysia are concern that the 266 people reported to have committed suicide from March 18 to Oct 30 could be just an indication of a far larger issues concerning mental health. This number translates to one suicide per day since the MCO was imposed on 18 March 2020. On top of that, there were 500 cases of suicide attempts reported in Malaysia in 2020. It has also been suggested that the number is far higher since there are cases that are unreported as requested by family members of the victim, likely to due to the archaic law in Malaysia that criminalize suicide attempts.
