Vaccination rollout successful


KUCHING: The vaccination rollout has reduced the Covid-19 cases in Sarawak, said the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) advisor Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian.

“Previously, there were 600 to 700 cases per day. This week at least, Sarawak recorded around 300 cases and below.

“This clearly shows that the infection rate in the community has decreased given the increased vaccination rate.

“That is why the government is working hard to accelerate the vaccination process to protect and save the lives of the people.

“Otherwise, we do not have enough beds in the hospitals. On top of that, I  hope that Sarawak’s economic sector will start to open soon.

“I also hope that the Covid-19 pandemic in Sarawak will end soon,”  he added  during the food aid distribution at the Hui Sing Community Hall on Saturday (July 3).

Dr Sim also pointed out that food donations   to the community were just as important as the vaccination rollout in Sarawak.

“We are aware that when the Covid-19 pandemic happened, everyone was facing difficulties in their livelihoods, especially during the implementation of the movement control order (MCO).

“With the spirit of ‘Kita Jaga Kita’, we will be able to save people’s lives by donating to the less fortunate,” he added.
