Hos­pi­tals need phone charg­ing sta­tions: Fomca

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETAL­ING JAYA: The Federation of Malaysian Con­sumers As­so­ci­a­tion (Fomca) has called for ma­jor hos­pi­tals to pro­vide phone charg­ing sta­tions for safety purposes.

Its se­nior vice-pres­i­dent, Datuk K. Koris Atan, said a charg­ing sta­tion is much safer and can charge about 20 mo­bile phones at a time.

“Con­sumers are in­creas­ingly re­ly­ing on their phone to stay con­nected, so I sug­gest that the Health Min­istry should make it com­pul­sory for all hos­pi­tals to have charg­ing sta­tions just like the one at the Kuala Lumpur International Air­port (KLIA).

He said the charg­ing kiosks were af­ford­able and had safety fea­tures which would re­duce the risk of short cir­cuits. – by Aiezat Fadzell
