Malaysia National Recovery Plan Changes Criteria!

On 7 August 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Finance announced that the government would be replacing one of the National Recovery Plan’s criteria to determine when states can transition to a different Phase :

The average daily new COVID-19 cases will be removed and replaced by “number of new symptomatic cases that were hospitalised“.

However, this new criteria will only be adopted when a Phase 1 state has achieved the vaccination rate of at least 50% of the adult population.

The new criteria is also based on new hospitalisations of Category 3, 4 and 5 patients.

These are the new thresholds for daily hospitalisations of Category 3, 4 and 5 patients nationwide.

Shift In

Symptomatic Cases
(Nationwide)

Phase 2 to

Phase 3 to
Phase 3

How Does New National Recovery Plan Criteria Work?

Here is an example of how the new criteria for the National Recovery Plan will work.

The Klang Valley, Johor, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah and Melaka are still in Phase 1.

When they achieve vaccination rates of at least 50%, they will start using the “new symptomatic hospitalisations” criteria.

From that point onwards, any state that achieves the new symptomatic hospitalisation threshold of 6.1 per 100,000 population, and a Moderate ICU use capacity, will shift to Phase 2.
