Malaysia May Ease Travel Restrictions and Dining in For Those Fully Vaccinated
The Malaysian government is mulling the idea of allowing those who have fully completed their vaccination to travel and dine in food outlets. While daily infections are setting record numbers, the vaccination centres are in full swing getting the rakyat (public) vaccinated. A few days ago, 460,000 doses were administered and out of that, 155,000 were second doses. So, that’s some good news so far.
Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said he had asked the JKJAV (Special Committee for Ensuring Access to Covid-19 Vaccine Supply), which is headed by Khairy Jamaluddin (Minister of Science, Technology & Innovation (MOSTI), to look into relaxing the Movement Control Order rules for the fully vaccinated.
“I think most of the people have received their (vaccine) shots. So, I have asked the JKJAV to look into giving some leeway for those who have completed taking two doses of the vaccine either for travelling or dining at restaurants. This will show that while we are handling the Covid-19, the people’s lives can gradually return to normal,” he said yesterday.
Let’s hope this comes to fruition so that we who are fully vaccinated can go about rebuilding the economy and our lives. Stay safe.
