PUTRAJAYA SEPT.9: The problem of fully vaccinated certificate not shown on MySejahtera for those already had two dose of COVID-19 vaccinations will be solved within a week.
Minister of Health (MOH), Khairy Jamaluddin said, for the meantime the people could use the physical vaccination card as a prove that they have received two doses.
“Everything will be done virtually to avoid people from travelling to far places or to cross district just to solve the problem of the digital certificate,” Khairy said at a press conference via TV1 live telecasted here today.
Khairy also announced the MOH website on the pandemic will be changed to a new name “COVID Now” with a format easily understood and new updates and more detailed information on the daily COVID-19 cases.
Regarding the question of why there are still deaths due to COVID-19 among the people who had been fully vaccinated, Khairy said, only 0.009 per cent died or in another word, in one million only 90 persons died.
Khairy added, from the deaths, 81 per cent were co-morbidities and 80 percent were above 60 years old. The vaccine on the whole is good and gives protection to many people with small breakthrough deaths.
In another development, Khairy said in August there were 2,417 cases brought in dead (BID) and out of which 217 or 14 per cent were under the care of the Ministry of Health (MOH), private clinics and COVID-19 Assessment Centre (CAC) while 86 per cent were not under any direct supervision either by the CAC or general practitioners (GP).
Khairy also highlighted on the surge of COVID-19 cases in Terengganu and Sarawak and instable situations in Perak, Perlis, Kelantan, Johor and Sabah.
He said, MOH and other agencies are closely monitoring the public health facilities nationwide.
The people in category 3 will be taken to the COVID-19 Quarantine and Low Risk Treatment Centre (PKRC) and those in category 2 high risk including those in the home quarantine will also be considered as admissible patients. – Malaysia World News
