SUBANG JAYA: Penang has become the second state after Malacca to have smoke-free zones.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the ministry approved six areas to be gazetted as smoke free zones. They include reservoirs and recreational parks, including the Botanical Gardens.
These areas have been gazetted as smoke-free since October last year.
"I hope they'll apply for more historical sites to be smoke free," Liow said after launching the Blue Ribbon campaign at the Sunway Medical Centre here.
Under the Smoke Free Malacca programme, five areas in the state had been gazetted as smoke free zones since 2011
