Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohammad Isham bin Haji Jaafar yesterday reminded the public to exercise their responsibilities, especially when holding private events.

The minister said this in response to the Bulletin’s query on the spike of 16 local cases announced yesterday after the country has been seeing low numbers of late.

Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham confirmed that yesterday’s 15 local cases are categorised into two clusters and surfaced from wedding events hosted at residences.

“I would like to reiterate to the public to exercise better control and conduct thorough preparations before holding events while strictly following the SOPs and guidelines,” the minister reminded.

He said hosts and guests must ensure no one attends the event with symptoms, all guests should wear face masks and follow SOPs in place. The minister also said QR codes should be created for the event at the residence to allow for the ease in contact tracing, should the need arise.

Addressing another query, the minister said that the country is still waiting for vaccines to arrive in the first quarter of this year and will be administered to children aged five to 11.
