When interstate travel resumes

by | Oct 1, 2021 | NEWS | 0 comments

In possibly less than two weeks, Malaysians are looking forward to the possibility of interstate travel but health and medical experts caution that people must continue to adhere to strict SOPs at all times.

These experts contend that while interstate travel is justified, people should remain on high alert and be vigilant.

An epidemiologist stated that she believed the decision to be made by the government to allow interstate travel or reopening of borders would be based on risk assessment and vaccination rates as well as important clinical and hospital indicators.

She also felt the reopening of international borders should not be an issue as long as the procedure follows the appropriate SOP.

National Recovery Council (NRC) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin disclosed that interstate travel would likely be allowed in early October or latest, the middle of the month.

Muhyiddin also said the government was mulling the idea of reopening the country’s borders to tourists and business travellers as well as whether to allow fully vaccinated Malaysians to travel abroad.
