Fadley Faisal

Travel restrictions are always under review, said Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister of Finance and Economy II Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah when asked if there were plans to ease travel restrictions, at a press conference yesterday.

The media inquired on the impact of import cases on the COVID-19 situation in the country and if there are plans to ease travel restrictions, reflecting that local transmissions made up most of COVID-19 cases.

The minister said statistics indicated that transmissions due to imported COVID-19 cases were at a rate of 0.5 per cent, which is relatively low compared to the total COVID-19 transmissions in the country as a whole.

The minister reiterated that the policies covering travel restrictions or its easing are always under review and assured that changes will be made in due time.
