PETALING JAYA: Contact tracing using the MySejahtera application is still relevant, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The Health Minister denied suggestions that the application has become obsolete as the daily cases in the country are increasing while transitioning to the endemic phase.

“It has been proven that during the peak of the Omicron wave last month, we sent out notifications to casual contacts and 45% of them were positive.

“It showed that the application is still relevant,” he told a press conference on Thursday (April 14).

However, Khairy added that the ministry will look into any possibility of ceasing the use of the application for "micro-tracing" during the transitioning phase and an announcement will be made in the next two to three weeks.
