Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin today said that the the relaxation of SOPs for those who have completed two doses of Covid-19 vaccine will be announced within the next few days.

“We will finalise (the details) and I will announce it as a total package,” he said in a special interview with the media.

He said the relaxation of SOP restrictions would include travel to Malaysia, interstate movement for spouses working separately, social activities, sports and dine-in at restaurants.

“I do hope that this (relaxation) will give room or space, breathing space, for the people to live a slightly better life,” he said.

Muhyiddin on July 17 had announced that the easing of restrictions for individuals who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be decided at the National Recovery Council meeting this week.

He said this would be in line with the opening of more economic sectors when states transition to Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan (NRP, especially in the Klang Valley.

The NRP is scheduled to be tabled by the prime minister at the special meeting of the third session of the 14th Parliament on Monday.

On this, he said although the session would be opened for debate, the government remained firm in its decision to proceed with the NRP until the country is back on track, which he said should not be too long from now.
