Dzul: It’s the ‘living with Covid-19’ phase now

KUALA LUMPUR: The people are currently in the phase of living with the Covid-19 virus and in the transition towards continuing life as usual, says Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad (pic).

He said this distinction was decided at a post-Cabinet meeting at the Health Ministry level recently.

“In the post-Cabinet meeting of the ministry, we made a decision that we will now live with the virus.

“We take the attitude to start this phase of living with the virus like all other viruses such as influenza and Chikungunya.

“If anything happens, the Health Ministry is always monitoring ... we are always ready to bounce back into action.

“There will be communications from time to time if there are cases,” he told a press conference after officiating the Gotong Royong Mega Perangi Aedes 1.0 National Level programme in conjunction with Asean Dengue Day 2024 at the Armed Forces Family Housing in Setia Wira Village here yesterday, Bernama reported.

Dzulkefly also advised the people to always be aware of the latest developments of Covid-19 by visiting to enable them to monitor the status of any outbreak in the country.

“If you have symptoms, go see a doctor for consultation and treatment; if you are in public areas, always protect others by wearing a face mask,” he said.
