Govt focusing vaccination on industries operating currently

MELAKA: The government is currently focusing on completing the vaccination process for industries sector allowed to operate during the movement control.

Covid-19 National Immunisation Programme (PICK) coordinating minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the government will only look into other sectors such as tourism once this is completed.

“We will first focus on industries that are operating during the movement control. (Currently), many factories have to operate. Only after that, we will look at the other sectors.

“Perhaps, when we get to phase two or three (of the National Recovery Plan), I will have talks with the Chief Minister (Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali) and shift our focus to the tourism sector such as hospitality, hotels, trishaw riders and so on,” he said.

He was speaking to reporters after attending a state-level Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) meeting that was chaired by Sulaiman. – Bernama
