KOTA KINABALU: A total of 5,858 people in Sabah have received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine as of Saturday (March 6), says Datuk Masidi Manjun.

The state Local Government and Housing Minister said this was based on the report by Sabah's Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF).

"The CITF target is for 42,164 people (under Phase 1) to be vaccinated here," he said in a statement on Saturday.

Sabah received its first batch of vaccines on Feb 25, and the state-level programme was launched on Thursday (March 4).

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor was the first to receive the jab during the event.

On another note, he said the state government will allow the sports and recreation activities to resume on Monday (March 8), with the standard operating procedures (SOP) to be issued soon.

Sabah recorded 74 new cases on Saturday, bringing the cumulative figure to 53,387. One fatality was recorded in Tawau district while 13 districts recorded zero new cases.
