Give cooperation in fight against Covid-19

Date:

KUCHING: Residents in Kuala Rajang were reminded to cooperate with the authorities to reduce the spread of Covid-19 cases in the state.

Urban Development and Natural Resources Assistant Minister Datuk Len Talif Salleh said one way of doing so is by getting the Covid-19 vaccine jabs.

“I call on all residents of Kuala Rajang to obey and give full trust to the government in tackling the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic through the use of vaccines,” he said in a Facebook post today.

Len said at the same time the residents and their family members need to practise the set standard operating procedures (SOPs).

He said one of the easiest measures that can be taken to prevent the spread of Covid-19 is by wearing the face masks properly.

“It is very important to maintain the cleanliness of the environment such as the workplace, outside and inside the house, especially the locations that involve the presence of others.

“Hopefully by practising cleanliness in our daily lives, we are free from any dangerous diseases,” the Kuala Rajang assemblyman said.

On Friday Sarawak registered a new record high of 2,548 Covid-19 cases, placing it third right behind Selangor’s 6,974 and Sabah’s 2,738 cases out of 23,564 nationwide.

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah in a Facebook post said this brought Sarawak’s cumulative number of cases to date at 94,564, out of the nationwide 1,513,024.

As of Friday, Sarawak had vaccinated about 83.6 percent of its eligible population with two doses of Covid-19 vaccines.
