The Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri in a statement today (22 July) said that the government is currently looking into the SOP relaxations for Malaysians who have completed their vaccination.
While Malaysians are waiting anxiously for the full list, Ismail Sabri may have given some hints into what Malaysians can look forward to.
Ismail Sabri took it to his Facebook and said that after having gone through the comments of netizens on social media, he found many long-distance couples and parents who were being separated due to the Movement Control Order (MCO) had been longing to reunite with each other.
Nonetheless, he said that this is one of the issue that caught his attention and it was being brought up to the National Security Council (MKN) too.
“As a father, I realize how important the institution of the family is to human beings. Even for safety reasons, a mother or father should not be forced to be separated from their children for too long.”
“Especially if the parents have already received two doses of the vaccine.” he said in the Facebook post.
He mentioned that this is the reason for him to bring this issue up for discussion at the National Security Council meeting for the relaxation to be considered for those who have already completed their two doses of vaccination.
As of now, he said that the government is refining this proposal to enable these long-distance couple and families to be reunited.
