PETALING JAYA: As Covid-19 cases cross the five-figure mark for the first time with the Klang Valley contributing to the bulk of infections, the Greater Klang Valley special task force has been given the mandate to make quick decisions on behalf of the Health Ministry.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said this was to ensure resources could be deployed in the fastest way possible to provide relief for the healthcare system that had been weighed down by rising Covid-19 infections, especially in the Klang Valley.
