Negri Sembilan, Pahang and Johor will move on to the next phases of the NRP, says PM

PETALING JAYA: Negri Sembilan would be entering into Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) effective Friday (Sept 24), says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Prime Minister said that on the same day, Pahang would be moved into Phase Three while Johor would enter Phase Two.

Ismail Sabri said the Special Committee on Pandemic Management made the decision to move the states into the next phases of the NRP for each of the states on Wednesday (Sept 22).

"The transition of this phase is in accordance with the guidelines set by the National Recovery Plan taking into consideration the hospitalisations for symptomatic cases, the usage of ICU beds as well as the percentage of those who are fully vaccinated.

"This decision is also made based on the current risk assessment made by the Health Ministry and the National Security Council (NSC)," he said in a statement on Wednesday.

He added that the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for states entering Phase Two, Three and Four are the same as the SOPs before.

Ismail Sabri said the latest SOPs will be updated by the NSC on its official website:
