Government To Cut Down Existing Covid-19 SOPs From 181 To Just 10
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Malaysians probably have had their fair share of confusing moments due to the many revisions and additions of Covid-19 SOPs. Luckily, the government has decided to streamline all 181 SOPs to just 10 as Malaysia prepares to head into the Covid-19 endemic phase next month.
According to Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, the revision of SOPs aims to strike a balance between reviving the economy as well as the people’s well-being and health. The National Security Council is expected to take two to three weeks to complete the new SOPs.
“It will be a lot easier for all to understand when there are 10 SOP rules. We have been working on SOPs for so long, one and a half years now, I hope it can be done so as to make it easier for all,” he said.
The new SOPs would be presented to the prime minister before they are announced to the public. Once that is done, the Communications and Multimedia Ministry will also help to promote the new set of SOPs to ensure there is no confusion.
