Malaysian govt to consider allowing those fully vaccinated to travel and relax – PM

muhyiddin yassin recovery plan

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysian government is discussing to relax or lessen restrictions for those who are fully vaccinated, including allowing them to travel or dine at restaurants, as part of the national recovery plan.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said he has asked for relaxation to be considered for those who have received two vaccine doses.

“This could be for their travel or dining in at restaurants. This will show that while we battle with Covid-19, we can gradually return to normal life.

“The national recovery plan will take until the end of the year, so let’s be patient. Be confident that we can win this war,”  Muhyiddin told reporters at an event today.

Muhyiddin said the national vaccination programme is a “light at the end of the tunnel” in the country’s battle against the Covid-19 pandemic. The country will gradually adjust towards returning to normal life, The Star quoted him as saying.

“We managed to vaccinate over 421,000 people in a day, and hopefully this can be maintained. Now, our focus is the greater Klang Valley. Through our targeted measures, we can deal with the Covid-19 infections better.

“We hope that our vaccine supplies will also continue increasing this month and next, so we can keep to our projection of completing the recovery plan by the end of the year,” added the Prime Minister.
