When asked to comment on the rising Covid-19 cases, Abdullah said the community must be disciplined and adhere to the directives from the authorities.

He said this was to ensure life in the endemic phase would be smooth. 

“When we enter the endemic phase, we still must be disciplined, responsible, comply with the preventive measures and directives from the authorities even though majority of the people have been vaccinated.

“The coronavirus will not be fully eradicated for many years to come similar to the aedes mosquitoes which are impossible to kill completely to prevent dengue fever,” he added.
