Citizens approve of Health Minister decision to minimise surveillance
The decision of the Health Minister to minimise surveillance as the nation head towards an endemic has been approved by citizens.
Khairy Jamaluddin said that having roadblocks to examine the vaccination status of each individual is not viable, citing that it is not the government’s way of washing their hands.
The Rembau MP added, “It’s not viable. It will also cause a traffic jam and only anger people who only want to return to their hometowns after not being able to do so for a long time.”
Malaysians have agreed with the statements made as they acknowledged people should bear responsibility too.
Sam Ong believed that families, communities and society have to start taking responsibility for their actions.
Having received protection like masks and vaccines, it would be a waste if the nation goes back to a critical stage because of some breaking SOPs.
Khairy claimed that if some managed to interstate travel, their movement will be limited due to their vaccination status.
“As we transition towards the endemic phase, it is upon ourselves, to be honest, and responsible,” he said.
Zahidi Ahmad insists that the government can no longer babysit us anymore in an endemic stage.
He said, “The public had two years of experience. Time to fly solo.”
Zahidi suggested that unvaccinated citizens should be allowed to interstate travel to meet families but are not allowed outside their homes.
