PM Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that the government will be allocating about RM471.6 million to provide Covid-19 Care Packages (PPC) to B40 households. This move was to ensure the B40 individuals and families stay free from Covid-19 infections and ease their financial burden.


The Covid-19 Care Package includes reusable face masks (4 per family), self-test kits (4 per family), 1 oximeter, 1 thermometer, usage guide leaflets, and health information.


“The current PPC grant will start with the recipients of Bantuan Prihatin Rakyat (ACA) who already have families. These are among B40 households who are married with or without children; or a single mother or father with children. The initiative is expected to benefit approximately 3.6 million B40 families. In total, there are 8.4 million BPR recipients,” he said.
