Daily cases has been steadily on the rise, and after receiving over 4k cases in two consecutive days (today 4,744), Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin took to Twitter stating that, an Omicron wave has begun in Malaysia.
Gelombang Omicron bermula di Malaysia. Kes akan namun InsyaAllah terkawal dengan kadar vaksinasi yang tinggi. Sistem kesihatan sudah bersiap siaga. Kes serius semakin kurang. Sama2 kita mengatasi gelombang ini. Mask. #TRIIS. Booster. #PICKids. https://t.co/KYLzwPon1w— Khairy Jamaluddin (@Khairykj) January 26, 2022
However, he also noted that with high vaccination rates, a decrease in serious cases as well as the public following government implemented SOPs (masks and social distancing), we would be able to beat the wave.
That being said, let us all do our parts to stay safe, strictly abide by SOPs, and flatten another curve.
