Sarawakians urged to remain vigilant as state enters Phase 3 of NRP

Date:

KUCHING: Sarawakians are again reminded to be vigilant as the state, including its Southern Region, enters the third phase of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).

Federal Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said it was imperative that the number of cases remain under control.

“We must be careful so that daily cases are no longer as high as before. If the cases increase again, it will not only threaten the health of the public but will also affect the newly reopened economic sectors,” he said this in a Facebook post on Friday (Oct 1).

Wan Junaidi however said inter-district travel would still require police permits.

“I believe that Sarawakians will abide by the standard operating procedures of NRP. The fight against Covid-19 is not over yet.”

On Monday, the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee decided that the Southern Zone would move on to Phase 3, effective Oct 1.

“This is after the state Health Department and state National Security Council had made a risk assessment and taken into account the threshold values for the three indicators of the NRP for Southern Zone.”

The Southern Zone covers eight districts, namely Kuching, Bau, Lundu, Samarahan, Asajaya, Simunjan, Serian and Tebedu.

On Aug 4, others parts of Sarawak except the Southern Zone entered Phase 3.
