Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin today said a new setting will be included in the MySejahtera app to make it easier for people to display their risk level and vaccination status, a day after announcing that the government was working to simplify SOPs ahead of October when the endemic phase of Covid-19 is expected to begin.

“This will ease living with Covid, together,” he said in a Twitter post.

“Will further update and improve the app over the coming weeks.”

Khairy said at a press conference yesterday that the government would simplify health SOPs to help Malaysians prepare for the endemic phase of Covid-19.

He said Covid-19 would be managed like any other endemic disease, and that his ministry was preparing a road map for the country’s transition to the new normal.

“We must accept the fact that even if we get this pandemic under control, Covid will be endemic. We have to live with it.

“Most countries have decided to live with Covid. We cannot shut down and contain the pandemic anymore,” he said.

He also said the SOPs would be simplified so that they are “not too many in number or too complicated”.
