Covid-19: Suggestion on antibody test is outside police jurisdiction, says IGP

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The statement advising individuals who are worried about being injected with an empty vaccine syringe to do the Covid neutralising antibody test is outside the jurisdiction of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), says Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

In this regard, he said any difficulties or questions that arose following the statement issued by Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan were regretted.

"PDRM remains committed to supporting the National Covid-19 immunisation programme and will take steps in line with the Health Ministry,

Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force and Special Committee on Covid-19 Vaccine Supply to ensure the best vaccination services are delivered to the public," he said in a statement on Sunday (July 25).

On Saturday (July 24), Abd Jalil said that vaccine recipients who are anxious and feel cheated could do a Covid neutralising antibody test at a licensed medical laboratory, 30 days after receiving the second dose to confirm the presence of antibodies in the body. - Bernama
