7M Malaysians have not yet received a Covid-19 booster dose.
Seven million Malaysians have not to receive their booster dose against Covid-19, according to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, who urged them to do so quickly.
Although the booster dose is not required, according to him, it is still essential since it will help combat new viral varieties, particularly the highly contagious Omicron BA.5 strain, as well as the increased trend in positive Covid-19 cases.
He wants to urge individuals who haven’t yet taken the booster dose to do so right away in order to protect themselves from infection. If they are already experiencing the symptoms, he suggests they visit a doctor for confirmation.
Ismail Sabri responded that the Ministry of Health will have the final say on whether or not to reopen large-scale immunisation facilities to assist people who have not yet received the booster shot.
Despite the rise in the number of Covid-19 positive cases, the prime minister also stated that the government had no plans to reopen the commercial sectors.
Ismail Sabri claimed that despite numerous relaxations since the nation reached the Transition to Endemic phase on April 1, the public were still encouraged to take adequate precautions to prevent Covid-19 infection.
Regarding the Korban Perdana programme, he stated it has been customary for his constituency to host the programme, and 79 cows were given out this year to that end.
