The interstate travel ban is set to be lifted soon as the nation’s vaccination rate against Covid-19 is fast approaching the 90 per cent adult population target.
Referring to the latest vaccination data, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin posted on Twitter that there is a mere four per cent to go until the government lifts the interstate travel ban.
“86 per cent adults have been fully vaccinated. 4 per cent more until we lift interstate travel. With greater mobility, there will be more gatherings. We need to take responsibility for our actions. If you develop symptoms get a test kit and test. If positive, isolate quickly,” he posted this morning.
Previously, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said interstate travel would be allowed when 90 per cent of the country’s adult population have been fully vaccinated, based on the Ministry of Health (MoH) data and analysis.
According to MoH’s COVIDNOW portal, 20,317,843 individuals or 86.8 per cent of adults have completed their jabs as of yesterday.
