PM: Consider relaxing movement control for those who have received two Covid-19 vaccine doses


PUTRAJAYA: The government is looking into relaxing restrictions for those who are fully vaccinated, including allowing people to travel or dine at restaurants, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin

The Prime Minister said this is part of the national recovery plan as the country gradually adjusts towards returning to normal life.

“I’ve asked for relaxation to be considered for those who have received two vaccine doses. This could be for their travel or dining in at restaurants. This will show that while we battle with Covid-19, we can gradually return to normal life," he said.

“The national recovery plan will take until the end of the year, so let’s be patient. Be confident that we can win this war,” added Muhyiddin at a press conference after witnessing preparations for the national Prihatin food basket programme at the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry here on Thursday (July 15).

Muhyiddin said the national vaccination programme is a “light at the end of the tunnel” in the country’s battle against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We managed to vaccinate over 421,000 people in a day, and hopefully this can be maintained. Now, our focus is the greater Klang Valley. Through our targeted measures, we can deal with the Covid-19 infections better," said Muhyiddin.

“We hope that our vaccine supplies will also continue increasing this month and next, so we can keep to our projection of completing the recovery plan by the end of the year,” added the Prime Minister.

Also present at the event was Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Harun.

At the event, Muhyiddin received contributions worth RM16mil from five corporate companies for the Prihatin food basket programme.
