Makale Özeti: In general, we have seen some catastrophic events or natural disasters that took place in the country, including the Tsunami on December 26, 2004 and the huge floods throughout Peninsular Malaysia in 2006. However, what is interesting to interpret is that the government is basically seen illustrating on the crisis that happened specifically far more than handling anything that is actually related to the natural disaster. Having said that, when the country was stricken by the Covid-19 epidemic in late 2019 to the present day, it appears that the government has no specific reference or policy to deal with the outbreak that has affected thousands of people and killed more than100 people in the country. A crisis management team with specific crisis management policies must be in place to immediately mitigate and handle the crisis at hand efficiently. The chain of command must be in place to ensure smooth dissemination of proper information thus ensuring the government’s credibility and no contradiction of information by the respective authorities responsible in handling the disaster management or crisis at hand. Disasters are a combination of threat (hazard) and vulnerability (vulnerability). Threats are a phenomena, dangers or risks, both natural and non-natural that can (but do not necessarily result in catastrophic floods, landslides, drought, disease outbreaks, armed conflicts etc.) Vulnerability is a condition in a community that makes them helpless of threats including physical, social, and psychological influences. So through this study, the communication crisis or catastrophe faced by the country can be divided into two forms: (1) hazard or crisis by eye-sighting (macro crisis), and (2) vulnerability or unseen crisis eye-sighting (micro crisis).
