Malaysian Health Ministry proposes interstate travel be postponed for Raya

KUALA LUMPUR (CNA) – The Malaysian Health Ministry has proposed that interstate travel be postponed for the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri, as daily COVID-19 cases continue to rise.

Speaking after a ministry event yesterday, Health Minister Adham Baba said the proposal to put off approval for interstate travel was due to two reasons.

“One, there are new variants of COVID-19 in the community. Two, the vaccination programme is still ongoing, so we need to control the situation,” he said.
