PUTRAJAYA: After more than two years of releasing daily reports on the country’s Covid-19 situation, the Health Ministry is now switching to weekly reports as the country transitions to endemicity, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The Health Minister said that Thursday (April 28) would be the last time a daily statement would be issued by the ministry.

“After this, the Health director-general will be releasing weekly reports,” he said on Wednesday (April 27).

Khairy said that while the country was “one or two final steps” from reaching normalcy, the current Covid-19 situation remains at a pandemic level.

“We are not yet at a level that we can declare safe.

“The Health Ministry will continue to monitor the situation, especially in other countries and on the emergence of new variants,” he said.

Khairy said it was important to keep a close eye on developments abroad as it would affect the management of Covid-19 in Malaysia.
