WITH the Covid-19 pandemic severely affecting the Klang Valley, public-listed company Yong Tai Bhd together with several organisations, distributed 300 aid packs to help those in need through these tough times.

Also participating in this endeavour were Malaysian Selangor Chinese Medicine Lions Club, Chinese Media Club, Borneo Ambassador Organisation and Malaysian Welfare Charity Association.

The event, held at the People’s Housing Project Community Centre of Taman Ikan Emas in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, was themed “Sending warmth throughout this pandemic along with Yong Tai”. The company’s community activity, with support from its employees and participating organisations, also saw distribution of 300 packs of white rice.

Yong Tai chief executive officer Datuk Wira Boo Kuang Loon said the company was hoping to bring in the Kangtai vaccine from China.

He said the ultimate goal was to introduce China’s vaccine research and production technology to Malaysia.

This involves setting up factories to develop and produce Covid-19 and other vaccines in meeting long-term demand for vaccines in the future.

“If it succeeds, this will be the first Covid-19 vaccine research and production facility established by Biokangtai in South-East Asia, and Yong Tai will be Biokangtai’s partner in Malaysia,” said Boo.

Malaysian Selangor Chinese Medicine Lions Club founder and president Dr Wong Bao Ming, meanwhile, said that vaccines would be the main weapon against Covid-19 infections in the future.
