Earlier this week, Singapore recorded a spike in Covid-19 cases with 2,475, 15 of them were imported cases. However, Singapore and Malaysia's cross-border travel discussion is expected to continue despite the surge of cases.
According to Johor Menteri Besar, Hasni Mohammad assured that both countries are taking precautionary steps, including Singapore providing every household with a Covid-19 test kit and mulling on the 3rd Covid-19 vaccination shot. “The increase in Covid-19 cases in Singapore is not seen as an obstacle to our effort to discuss about reopening the borders,” he said.
Apparently, the MOH is working on a date for the SOPs to be presented and discussed. That said, PM Dato Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob informed Hasni to continue with the discussions with Singapore, particularly for Malaysians who commute to the neighbouring country for work purposes.
