National Recovery Council chairman Muhyiddin Yassin today advised Malaysians to practise self-control and not to be complacent even though interstate travel has been allowed.
He reminded the people to conduct screening with Covid-19 self-test kits for the quick detection of infection, adding that those found positive should go into isolation to effectively break the chain of virus infection in the community.
“If you can afford it, carry out screening with Covid-19 self-test kits more frequently at home as the kits are now sold at reasonable prices in pharmacies and online,” he said in a Facebook post.
The former prime minister also praised the government for consistently providing vaccines to as many people as possible in the country and reducing the burden on the health sector as well as enabling more economic and social sectors to open.
“The relaxation was only given when the risk sectors had been evaluated and the government had implemented its responsibility well in dispensing vaccines to as many people as possible in Malaysia,” he said.
Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob in a special media conference yesterday said the government had agreed to allow movements across states without the need to obtain police permit starting from today.
