KUCHING (July 2): The Sarawak Health Department’s Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) revealed that those who have received their Covid-19 vaccines were among the daily positive cases in the state.
A spokesperson from the state CPRC when contacted today, confirmed this, adding that the breakdown of cases involving those who have been vaccinated would not be included in the daily Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) Covid-19 update.
“Yes, the positive cases include those who have received first dose and completed two doses of vaccination,” the spokesperson told The Borneo Post.
Sarawak’s daily Covid-19 report is prepared by the state CPRC, which would then be released to the media via SDMC’s daily Covid-19 update statement.
Meanwhile, Special Committee on Covid-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) in its website under the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section stated that the use of Covid-19 vaccine was one of the steps taken by Malaysia to stop the pandemic.
JKJAV however said that compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOP) and the practice of new norms, such as observing daily hygiene, wearing face masks and physical isolation were still necessary until as many residents as possible have been vaccinated.
