What’s the discussion about?
During the weekend, a foreign media alleged that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, his family and several Malaysian VIPs received the Sinopharm vaccine, which has yet to be approved by Malaysia’s pharmaceutical regulator.
The report pointed out that His Majesty also obtained 2,000 doses of China’s Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine so that the family and friends can be vaccinated.
However, Minister of Health Dr Adham Baba has denied the report and denounced the allegations in the article as unfounded. It is an attempt to create a negative impression of Malaysia.
Many netizens are concerned about this subject of the royal family members were given priority for the vaccination, and have tagged the Twitter of the Special Committee on Guaranteed Access to Coronary Disease Vaccines (JKJAV), hoping to get the government’s attention.
