In a press conference today (17 July), Muhyiddin said that the easing of restrictions for individuals who have receive 2 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine will be decided at the National Recovery Council meeting next week.
He added that the initiative serves as a benefit or incentive for those who are fully vaccinated and to encourage the public to register for the vaccination.
“… and after this we will announce the details on the relaxation for those who have received two doses so that they would not continue to be tied down (by restrictions). There must be some advantage for them.” he told reporters from Bernama after visiting pharmaceutical company Pharmaniaga LifeScience Sdn Bhd.
Meanwhile, he said that the easy of restrictions might include permission to go shopping or cross districts when the Movement Control Order (MCO) is in force.
He added that this initiative is also in line with the Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan (NRP), where more economic sectors will be allowed to operate, especially in the Klang Valley.
Muhyiddin said that the main focus of the Government is to ramp up the vaccination rate in Klang Valley to reduce the number of Covid-19 cases in the area.
“We have set up a task force to, among others, ramp up vaccination in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.”
“Now we have a supply of 3 million vaccine doses for people in this region to ensure a reduction (in new cases) in the next two or three weeks, so that it can enter Phase Two of NRP soon.” he said.
Nonetheless, the SOP remain in force now, whether for those who are vaccinated or not. Muhyiddin reminded the public to continue adhering to the SOP to curb the spread of Covid-19.
