Sarawakians looking forward to NRP Phase 2


MIRI: The Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) is happy to see that Covid-19 cases in Sarawak have been on the decline for the past few days, and many Sarawakians are looking forward to more businesses re-opening in Phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).

“According to the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) infographic, in Phase 2, certain economic activities such as barber shops, car wash, furniture shops and others can open but under strict standard operating procedures (SOPs),” said SUPP secretary-general Datuk Sebastian Ting.

“However, working capacity is limited to 50 per cent, including operations and management.”

Ting said the re-opening of activities also very much depended on the vaccination programme. 

“Currently, it is progressing well and as announced by Sarawak health director Dato Dr Mohamed Sapian Mohamed on July 4, Sarawak is targeting at least 80 per cent of its population vaccinated by mid-August.

“We hope by July 22, we will hit the 50 per cent mark of Sarawakians receiving two doses of the vaccine.”

During the Phase 2 of the NRP on Wednesday (July 14), dine-ins will be allowed.

“Maybe start off with a smaller number of people (for dine-in) then slowly increase the number and loosen the SOPs as cases continue to drop.”

He emphasised that the re-opening of more economic activities is crucial for the economy’s recovery and to save the industries from further collapse. 

“The gradual lifting of restrictions will give hope and encouragement to the people to see the end of the pandemic and to be able to go about their daily lives without worry.

“I believe with all Sarawakians working together and staying united, we can emerge victorious and overcome the pandemic, soon. As a responsible and caring Sarawak government, we will always continue to implement the necessary plans and measures to help all Sarawakians.”

Ting also reminded Mirians who have yet to register for vaccination to do so via MySejahtera or the District Office.

“You can WhatsApp your personal details to 01159284348 and 01159424290.”

Ting also thanked frontliners and volunteers, saying: “They are the true heroes for this past one and a half years.”
