Medical tourism as green bubble precursor to reopening borders, says private hospitals association

PETALING JAYA: The green bubble concept for the medical tourism sector should be created as a precursor to the opening of borders to foreign tourists, said Datuk Dr Kuljit Singh.

"Green bubbles for medical tourists are safe and regulated. They could be the first to start before the reopening of the tourism sector," the Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia president said during the virtual National Recovery Summit on Thursday (Sept 9).
