Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak commented that Putrajaya’s decision to allow interstate travel and lifting CMCO in several states is a sign that the government has not been successful in breaking the Covid-19 chokehold.
He added that Putrajaya’s focus is no longer on breaking the Covid-19 chain, but to ensure that there is no upsurge in the number of cases while waiting for vaccination to be distributed.
“It is hard to gauge as to whether or not this new move is right because in reality the people and the economy are hugely burdened by the never-ending CMCO.”
“I assume more restrictions will be lifted to allow the economic sector and social activities to run as usual.”
Najib also said that Malaysia is far worst that Indonesia when it comes to Covid-19 based on the number of population which will hinder foreign tourists from coming into the country.
“Thus far, Malaysia has recorded 2,234 cases for every one million people, Indonesia is at 2,096. Recording a total of 72,694, we will also surpass China (86,619) in the number of cases within 10 days.”
The government has recently announced that the public is now allowed to cross the state line beginning 7th December 2020, except for several areas still under RMCO.
