Service has no boundaries


KUCHING: Sibu Division Disaster Management Committee (DDMC) coordinator and Nangka state assemblyman, Dr Annuar Rapaee has no problems serving people outside his constituency.

“There is no personal interest in serving people outside my own area as long as that the communities there get vaccinated,” he said in a livestream on the weekly Covid-19 update for Sibu in his Facebook page on Saturday (July 17). 

Commenting on the vaccination drive in Pasai, Dr Annuar said that the armed forces were urged to help bring their combat medic vaccination team (CMVT) to inoculate the residents there.

“I know that this area is not in the Nangka constituency but my responsibility is beyond Nangka and I appealed to the armed forces to help bring their vaccination team to expedite the vaccination rollout there.

“In Nangka, we have done similar initiatives although we used mobile vaccination centres (PPVs) instead of CMVT.

“Don’t be mistaken, I just want to make sure that all the people of Sibu and those in Kanowit and Selangau are vaccinated to lower the number of Covid-19 cases there,” he said.

The Nangka assemblyman said while the authorities were targeting the vaccination of 70 to 80 percent of the population, it was better to inoculate more people.

“The CMVT was deployed from Kuching to Nanga Ngungun and it stopped by Sibu to go to Pasai.

“After this, it will be going to Mambong, Long Busang and return to Pasai to inoculate the residents with their second Covid-19 vaccine dose,” he said.

Dr Annuar said for the Tiong Hua and Tong San areas in Sibu, the team had gone from door to door to vaccinate the people.

“I have also tapped the Sarakup Indu Dayak Sarawak (SIDS) and the Sarawak Dayak National Union (SDNU) for their help.

“To me, there is no boundary to service, I hope everyone is clear on that,” he said.
