Tighter border health checks not meant to discriminate: PM Anwar

CNA – The Malaysian government’s decision to tighten border controls amid concerns over a spike in COVID-19 cases is not meant to discriminate against any country, said Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim on Wednesday.

In a press conference held after the weekly Cabinet meeting, he also said that the health of the people is the government’s main concern and this will not be superseded by tourism or economic growth.

“We have taken the stance of not discriminating against any country because if we look at the infection rate said about China, we know that the number of deaths in the United States because of COVID-19 is high, and other countries as well.
