KUCHING: Sarawak’s transition to Phase 3 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) is good news, said Demak Laut assemblyman Dr Hazland Abang Hipni.

He said regardless, the community must continue to be vigilant at all times and adhere to the standard operating procedures.

“During Phases 1 and 2 of the NRP, Sarawak has managed to reduce the rate of Covid-19 infection in the state.

“This is in addition to the success of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme in each division where most eligible residents have received their jabs.

“In the third phase of the NRP, there will be some flexibility given,” he said recently.

Dr Hazland reminded the public that, despite having received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccines, the threat posed by the disease remains.

“The Delta variant, which is very infectious and dangerous, is spreading quickly in the community,” he said.

Meanwhile, on the postponement of projects in the constituency following the movement control order (MCO), the assemblyman said it was done to ensure the safety of the workers.

He said many clusters have emerged from the workplace which is worrying as the infection could then spread to their families and the community.

“The government’s decision not to allow the opening of construction areas during the implementation of the MCO is to prioritise the health and lives of the workers,” he said.
