Interstate travel: Do not be complacent, practise self-control, says Muhyiddin

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): National Recovery Council (NRC) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has advised Malaysians to practise self-control and not to be complacent even though interstate travel is allowed from Monday (Oct 11).

He reminded the people to screen themselves with Covid-19 self-test kits for quick detection, adding that those found positive should go into isolation to effectively break the chain of infection in the community.

"If one could afford, carry out screening with Covid-19 self-test kits more frequently at home as the kits are now sold at reasonable prices in pharmacies and online,” he said in a Facebook post.

The former prime minister also praised the government for consistently providing vaccines to as many people as possible in the country and reducing the burden on the health sector as well as to enable more economic and social sectors to reopen.

"The relaxation was only given when the risk sectors had been evaluated and the government had implemented its responsibility well in dispensing vaccines to as many people as possible in Malaysia,” he said.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob in a special media conference on Sunday (Oct 10) said the government had agreed to allow movements across states without the need to obtain a police permit starting today. - Bernama
