An announcement will be made after Hari Raya Aidiladha on the relaxation of SOPs for those who have completed both doses of Covid-19 vaccine, Deputy Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said today.

He said the technical committee is still looking into the matter to determine the type of flexibility to be given to these people.

“We are also studying which business sectors can be given relaxed restrictions. A detailed study is in progress,” he said at a press conference after the launch of Mindef Prihatin at Wisma Pertahanan.

When asked about those who cannot be vaccinated due to health factors, Ismail said the matter would be referred to the health ministry.

On proposals to raise the fine for factories found flouting the SOPs, Ismail said the rate is subject to amendments to the emergency ordinance.

He said under the emergency ordinance, the government had earlier increased the RM1,000 compound under Act 342 to RM50,000.

“The emergency will end on Aug 1 and we will reinstate the RM1,000 penalty,” he said.
