How Schools Will Reopen In New PPN Phase 3 + 4 States!

The states moving to PPN Phase 3 or Phase 4 will reopen their schools next month.

Frankly, it’s all quite confusing, but let’s try to break it down…

 

New PPN Phase 3 + 4 : Schools To Reopen In 2 Weeks

These states will be upgraded to PPN Phase 3 or Phase 4, starting Monday, 18 October 2021.

  • Kelantan, Penang, Sabah and Kedah will be upgraded from Phase 2 to Phase 3
  • Melaka and Klang Valley (KL, Selangor, Putrajaya) will be upgraded from Phase 3 to Phase 4

As per the earlier Ministry of Education announcement, schools in states that get upgraded to a new PPN phase will transition after two (2) weeks.

However, this means schooling will resume for some students only for a few weeks before the December school holidays begin…

 

How Schools Will Reopen In New PPN Phase 3 + 4 States!

The latest press release by the Ministry of Education is rather confusing, so here is a quick summary of what they’re trying to say :

PPN Phase 3 Schools

These students in PPN Phase 3 states can start face-to-face classes starting Monday, 1 November 2021 :

  • Pre-school students
  • Special needs students (MBK) in National Special Education Schools and Integrated Special Education Program
  • Form 6 Semester 2 students
  • Pre-University students in Malaysia Sports School (SSM)
  • Students studying for public exams in boarding school / day school / private school.
  • Students studying for international exams like IGCSE O-Level, A-Level, Australia Higher School Certificate and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) and other international exams.

This applies to both public and private schools registered under the Ministry of Education.

PPN Phase 4 Schools

These students in PPN Phase 4 states can start face-to-face classes starting Monday, 1 November 2021 :

  • Standard 1, 2 and 3 students
  • Form 3 and Form 4 students

These students in PPN Phase 4 states can start face-to-face classes starting Monday, 8 November 2021 :

Foreign Workers To Pay For Vaccination In Klang Valley!

Malaysia will reopen COVID-19 vaccination for foreign workers in the Klang Valley, but it is NO LONGER FREE!

Here is what you need to know about this new COVID-19 vaccination initiative!

 

Vaccination For Foreign Workers : Used To Be FREE!

Malaysia earlier allowed all foreign workers, including those who are undocumented, to get their COVID-19 vaccination for FREE.

However, that walk-in vaccination programme for all foreigners only ran for a short time – from 9 until 22 August 2021.

The government seemed to have forgotten that we are only safe when everyone is safe.

 

Foreign Workers To Pay For Vaccination In Klang Valley!

On 23 September 2021, JKJAV appeared to have realised the folly of not vaccinating foreign workers.

They announced that foreign workers will be allowed to get vaccinated in the Klang Valley, but it will no longer be free!

Here are the details of the new COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers :

When?

The COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers in the Klang Valley will start on Monday, 27 September 2021 and end on Wednesday, 6 October 2021.

The COVID-19 vaccination programme will run from 9 AM until 6 PM every day.

Where?

The COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers in the Klang Valley will be conducted at a single vaccination centre :

CIDB PPV (COVID-19 Vaccination Centre)
CIDB Convention Centre,
Jalan Cheras, Kuala Lumpur

How?

Foreign workers, or their employers, are encouraged to register online at https://vaccine.cidblink.com/ to receive an appointment, and to expedite their registration process at the PPV.

The registration can be done individually by the foreign workers themselves, or by their employers.

The cost of vaccinating each foreign worker will be RM 90 for two (2) doses.

After registering and paying online, the foreign worker will receive an appointment through email and/or SMS.

Those who are unable to register online may walk-in for their vaccination at the CIDB PPV. However, they must be prepared to pay for their vaccination at the PPV, and will only be vaccinated if there are available doses.

Employers who are sending more than 10 foreign workers in one day must send a company representative to help manage them at the CIDB vaccination centre. The employer is also responsible to ensure that they understand the process and forms that must be filled.

What To Bring?

On the day of their vaccinations, the foreign workers must bring :

  • passport or other forms of identification (printed)
  • smartphone with MySejahtera
  • any evidence to show that they are working in the Klang Valley (pay slip, employer’s letter, etc.)

Daily Quota

The CIDB PPV is only able to vaccinate up to 2,000 people a day.

Those with appointments will be given priority. Those who walk-in will be vaccinated on a first come, first served basis, based on available doses.

Malaysia: Undocumented People To Get FREE COVID Vaccine

Please help to spread word that undocumented people in Malaysia are entitled to get the FREE COVID-19 vaccine too!

 

Malaysia : Undocumented People Can Get FREE COVID-19 Vaccine!

On 31 July 2021, JKJAV officially announced details of the walk-in vaccination programme, which is also open to foreigners including undocumented migrants and refugees!

This walk-in vaccination programme is currently available only in the Klang Valley, but should eventually be made available nationwide.

However, undocumented people in Malaysia might not be aware that they now have the right to get vaccinated against COVID-19 for FREE!

So please SHARE the following details of the walk-in vaccination programme for foreigners and undocumented people with them!

It is critical that we vaccinate foreigners and undocumented people to achieve herd immunity, because no one is safe until everyone is safe.

 

How Can Undocumented People In Malaysia Get COVID-19 Vaccine?

It was not possible for undocumented people in Malaysia to get access to the FREE COVID-19 vaccination earlier, as registration required a valid MyKad or passport.

That changes with the new walk-in vaccination programme, which NO LONGER requires any identification.

What Do They Need To Bring?

Undocumented migrants and refugees do NOT need to bring any identification or proof of citizenship. They only need to bring :

  1. Proof of address in Klang Valley (Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Putrajaya) *
    For example : utility bill, credit card bill, employment card, student card, etc.
  2. People with co-morbidities : doctor’s letter or any relevant document that confirms your health condition or history.

* This is possibly to prevent people from other states trying to travel interstate to get vaccinated.

Vaccine Consent Form Available In Their Native Language!

JKJAV has made the vaccine consent form available in 14 foreign languages, to help reach out to undocumented migrants and refugees.

These forms will be made available at the vaccination centre, but it will be helpful if you can print and explain it to them.

They can also pre-fill the forms and bring them to the vaccination centre.

Read more : JKJAV : Vaccine Consent Form Now In 14 More Languages!

When Can They Go?

The walk-in vaccination programme for foreigners, including undocumented migrants and refugees, will run from 9 until 22 August 2021.

  • Foreigners 40 years and above, or with co-morbidities : 9 to 11 August 2021
  • Foreigners 18 years and above : 12 to 22 August 2021

Where Should They Go?

The walk-in vaccination programme for foreigners, including undocumented migrants and refugees, is available only at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium vaccination centre.

But please note that they can only walk in for their free COVID-19 vaccination from 2 PM onwards.

Read more : Bukit Jalil Stadium Vaccination Centre : Video + Picture Guide!

Will They Be Eligible For Vaccine Outreach Programme?

It is currently UNKNOWN if undocumented migrants and refugees will be allowed to walk-in at vaccine outreach programme locations, but we certainly hope that will be the case!

JKJAV will only announce details of the vaccine outreach programme later, but here is what we know so far :

  • it will start from 9 August 2021 onwards
  • it will involve NGOs, mobile vaccination teams and other relevant agencies.
  • you will need to bring proof of residence in the Klang Valley (Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Putrajaya)
    For example : address on identity card, driving licence, utility bill, credit card bill, employment card, student card, etc.
  • If you have co-morbidities, you need to bring your doctor’s letter or any relevant document that confirms your health condition or history.

 

Help Undocumented People In Malaysia Get The COVID-19 Vaccine!

It is very important that we get all undocumented migrants and refugees vaccinated against COVID-19 for FREE.

This prevents them from being exploited by unscrupulous people selling COVID-19 vaccines for profit, often at obscene prices.

It will also help us achieve herd immunity in Malaysia, helping to protect each other. We are not safe until everyone is safe.

So please help to reach out to undocumented people in your neighbourhood. Pass word along that they can get vaccinated against COVID-19 for FREE!

“You Wanna Kena Whacked?” Maskless Bully To Be Charged!

The maskless bully who threatened to “whack” people who asked him to put on a face mask will be charged in court!

Take a look at the two viral videos, and find out why this Covidiot will soon be charged in court!

 

Maskless Bully : “You Wanna Kena Whacked?”

In this viral video, a maskless bully wanted to buy food at this roadside stall, but became aggressive when confronted for not wearing his face mask.

He started cursing and threatening not just the stall owners, but also another customer in the video, “You wanna kena whacked?

The video naturally went viral on social media, and netizens soon identified him as Shyamalan Jaganathan, a 33-year old licensing consultant who once worked for the Echez Group.

Echez Group has since announced that Shyamalan has not worked with them since 2018, stating :

We want to express to you that this person does not work with us since 2018 and does not represent the values and principles of our company.

We have already taken the necessary measures so that he can no longer use our name in social networks.

Echez Group respects and promotes among its employees, collaborators, and associates the application of the Biosafety protocols required in each geography where we have presence.

When his MyKad and His LinkedIn profile became public, Shyamalan quickly deleted his LinkedIn account.

Unfortunately, that didn’t stop netizens from coming across and sharing a video of a previous encounter in which he was abusive to another gym user.

 

“You Wanna Kena Whacked” Maskless Bully To Be Charged!

The incident happened at Jalan Desa Bakti in Kuala Lumpur, at around 10:30 AM on 19 July 2021.

The stall owner’s daughter lodged a police report against Shyamalan a few hours after the incident.

The Brickfields police announced that they were investigating the matter under :

  • Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation
  • Regulation 17(1) of the Prevent and Control of Infectious Disease Regulations 2021 for breaking the Phase 1 SOP (not wearing a face mask)

On 20 July 2021, Deputy Brickfields OCPD Superintendent Basri Sagoni confirmed that they arrested Shyamalan near his house in Taman Desa Bakti at 8 PM last night.

On 21 July 2021, Brickfields District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Anuar Omar said that the police obtained a one-day remand extension, and he will be charged tomorrow (22 July 2021) for criminal intimidation and not following the COVID-19 SOP.

He could receive up to two years of prison and/or a fine for criminal intimidation, as well as a compound for violating the SOP.

 

Maskless Bully : Why He’s A Danger To Society

Shyalaman is just one of the few but very vocal people who refuse to abide by COVID-19 precautions, in particular – wearing a face mask in public.

If he has COVID-19, he can easily spread it to other people simply by standing next to them. When he walked up to the man in the video, he was more than just physically threatening the other customer.

This is a real concern as the Delta variant of COVID-19 is capable of infecting people in 5 to 15 seconds, if you do not wear a face mask.

That is why it is critical that everyone must wear a face mask in public, preferably double-masked, and put on a face shield or some kind of eyewear if possible.

You should maintain a physical distance of 2-3 metres from other people if you can. Please don’t be a Covidiot like Shyamalan.

And definitely GET VACCINATED against COVID-19.

CITF : Walk-In Vaccination Details To Be Announced LATER!

CITF just issued a statement stating that the walk-in vaccination details will be announced LATER.

Here is what you need to know!

 

Fake News : You Can Walk In For Vaccination From 1 August Onwards!

There are at least three viral messages circulating on WhatsApp, claiming that you can walk in and get vaccinated at any vaccination centre (PPV) from 1 August 2021 onwards.

I fact-checked that in my article – Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards? earlier, so we know they are fake news.

 

CITF : Walk-In Vaccination Details To Be Announced LATER!

Unfortunately, many people refused to believe those messages are false, and continued to share the fake news.

This is partly because of this 8TV video of National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin.

So on 19 July 2021, the Malaysia COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) issued a statement to clear the air. Here is a summary :

  1. The walk-in initiative is only for those who are left out and have not received their vaccine appointments by 1 August 2021.
  2. Individuals in KL and Selangor who have already registered will be given their appointments very soon.
  3. Individuals who have not registered are encouraged to registered as soon as possible.
  4. Details of this programme will be announced later, as not all vaccination centres (PPVs) will be involved.

Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards?

Can you walk in and get your COVID-19 vaccination at any vaccination centre in Malaysia from 1 August onwards?

Take a look at the viral messages, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards?

Two messages have gone viral and are being shared on various WhatsApp groups.

They both claim that anyone who have not received their COVID-19 vaccine can walk in and get vaccinated at any PPV, from 1 August onwards.

Important information. Please share. From Aug 1 anyone who has not received their vaccine can walk into any PPVs for their vaccination

For those who has not gotten their Vac Appointment, for Sel/KL only. Beginning 1Aug, walk in any PPV, any age.
1. MIECC Mines – Sinovac
2. PWTC- AZ
3. Sunway Pyramid CC – Pfizer
4. Uitm Seksyen 7 – sinovac
5. Uitm Puncak Alam – Sinovac

They are sometimes shared with this video of National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, saying that anyone can walk in for their COVID-19 vaccination from 1 August onwards.

 

Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia : The Facts

The viral messages are not accurate, and here are the FACTS…

Fact #1 : Operation Surge Capacity Runs From 26 July – 1 August

On 16 July 2021, National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, announced Operation Surge Capacity.

This 5-day Operation Surge Capacity aims to give the adult population in KL and Selangor at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by 1 August 2021.

To vaccinate the remaining 1.3 million adult population in KL and Selangor, the CITF (COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force) will need to sustain 272,000 vaccinations per day.

Fact #2 : Walk-In Vaccination After Operation Surge Capacity

In a video that is often circulated with the viral message, Khairy Jamaluddin actually said that walk-in vaccination will only happen AFTER Operation Surge Capacity is completed.

So the actual date when people can walk-in and get their COVID-19 vaccination is predicated on the success of Operation Surge Capacity.

If Operation Surge Capacity is extended, then this option will likely be delayed.

Even if Operation Surge Capacity succeeds by 1 August, walk-in vaccination can only happen the next day – 2 August 2021.

So it’s best to WAIT for the official kick-off announcement, and not accept some random WhatsApp message at face value.

Fact #3 : Walk-In Vaccination Only In KL + Selangor

The first viral message also falsely suggests that anyone in Malaysia will be able to walk into any PPV to get vaccinated.

This walk-in vaccination option will only be available in KL and Selangor vaccination centres (PPVs) to “mop up anybody that has not received their first dose in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor”.

Fact #4 : Walk-In Vaccination Also For Undocumented

Surprisingly, undocumented people in Malaysia will also be allowed to walk into any PPV in KL and Selangor to get vaccinated.

This is very good news, as it is important that EVERYONE gets vaccinated, irrespective of their status in Malaysia.

Khairy Jamaluddin said, “This is so that we can ‘mop up’ anybody that has not received their first dose in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

Some people may not have been captured by the Statistics Department’s data, while there are those who are undocumented.

Fact #5 : Walk-In Vaccination Only For Adults

On 17 July 2021, CITF kicked off walk-in vaccinations for senior citizens aged 60 years and above in KL and Selangor.

When they expand the walk-in programme after Operation Surge Capacity, it will be restricted to adults – those who are 18 years and above.

So the second message is WRONG in claiming that anyone of “any age” can walk into a PPV to get vaccinated.

Read more : Walk-In Vaccination in KL + Selangor Kicks Off!

Fact #6 : Walk-In Vaccination Only For Those Without Appointments

Another fact not mentioned by the first message – only those who do NOT have a vaccine appointment yet, will be allowed to walk into a PPV in KL or Selangor.

Khairy Jamaluddin said, “Those who have already received their appointment dates are advised to stick to their appointments. Do not walk in.

Fact #7 : Sinovac Will Only Be Used For Dose 2

On 15 July 2021, Malaysia Health Minister, Adam Baba, announced that Sinovac will no longer be used for new vaccinations, and the remaining stock would be used to complete current vaccinations.

Adham Baba said, “About half of the 16 million have already been distributed, so the rest will be used to cover second doses. For those who have yet to be vaccinated, they will receive the Pfizer vaccine.

Hence, the second viral message with the list of vaccination centres offering Sinovac for walk-in vaccinations is FALSE.

Fact #8 : CITF Confirmed This Fact Check

On 19 July 2021, JKJAV issued a statement by the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) addressing the viral messages :

  • the walk-in programme will be updated and announced LATER
  • not all vaccination centres (PPVs) will be open for walk-in vaccinations.

So there you have it – the definitive debunk of the two fake viral messages above – from JKJAV and CITF.

Malaysia Has 4 Most Dangerous COVID-19 Cities In Asia?

Does Malaysia have four of the most dangerous COVID-19 cities in Asia?

Take a look at the viral infographic, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Malaysia Has 4 Most Dangerous COVID-19 Cities In Asia?

People are sharing this infographic, claiming that Malaysia has four of the most dangerous COVID-19 cities in Asia, according to WorldAtlas.

  • Kuala Lumpur : second most dangerous city in Asia
  • Petaling Jaya : third most dangerous city in Asia
  • Klang : fourth most dangerous city in Asia
  • Johor Bahru : tenth most dangerous city in Asia

Note : This is fake news, so we placed a FALSE overlay to prevent it from being abused further.

 

Malaysia Does NOT Have 4 Most Dangerous COVID-19 Cities In Asia

This is more fake news being shared on WhatsApp.

This infographic is real, but it was edited to convey a completely different message. Here is what you need to know

Fact #1 : This Infographic Is From 2016

This infographic is genuine, but it was originally posted in April 2016, not 2021.

The fake news creator just added the words “Covid terror countries” at the top.

Fact #2 : Infographic Was About Crime, Not COVID-19

The infographic above was about crime, not COVID-19. Obviously, COVID-19 did not exist back in 2016.

Fact #3 : Ranking Was Roundly Mocked

The WorldAtlas ranking was not based on actual crime statistics, but user surveys on the website, Numbeo.

Needless to say, it roundly mocked when it was released, as it did not reflect actual realities.

Fact #4 : Klang Isn’t A City

Klang is not a city, it’s a town. That’s another reason why the WorldAtlas ranking in 2016 was mocked.

EMCO Ends For KL + Selangor : What You Need To Know!

MKN just declared that the EMCO lockdown of KL and Selangor will end today!

Here is what you need to know!

 

EMCO Lockdown Ends For KL + Selangor!

On 15 July 2021, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) announced that the EMCO lockdown for these locations in KL will not be extended!

  • Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Sri Semarak
  • Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Batu Muda
  • Kampung Padang Balang
  • Taman Koperasi Polis (Fasa 1 & 2)
  • Flat Sri Sabah
  • Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Kampung Baru Air Panas
  • Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Kerinchi
  • Bandar Baru Sentul
  • Taman Ikan Emas

However, MKN did not mention what happens to these other locations in KL :

  • Flat Seksyen 2 Wangsa Maju
  • Flat Seksyen 1 Wangsa Maju
  • Kampung Puah
  • Flat Desa Pandan (Termasuk Baiduri & Delima)
  • Kampung Batu Muda

Then on 16 July 2021, MKN announced that the EMCO lockdown for Selangor will also not be extended!

Therefore, the EMCO lockdown for those 9 locations in KL and all 34 affected townships (mukims) in Selangor will end today – 16 July 2021!

Now that EMCO is over, the EMCO areas in KL and Selangor will return to Phase 1 restrictions.

There are some exceptions though. These areas were placed under EMCO restrictions from 18 to 31 July 2021 :

  • Damai Apartment in PJS 8, Mukim Damansara, Petaling District
  • Jalan Pandan Indah, Mukim Ampang, Hulu Langat District
  • Jalan Batu Nilam, Bukit Tinggi, Mukim Klang, Klang District
  • Taman Samudera, Mukim Batu, Gombak District

These four places will be placed under “real” EMCO, where residents are NOT ALLOWED to leave at all.

 

EMCO Ends In KL + Selangor : What’s Different?

When EMCO ends in KL and Selangor, the affected areas will go back to Phase 1 SOP.

But what’s different? Here are a few things that will change :

  • Instead of one person, now TWO (2) persons per household may leave to purchase essential items and food.
  • There is no longer an 8 PM curfew.
  • Jogging and exercise will be allowed in open areas in your housing area, with 2-3 metre physical distance, from 7 AM until 8 PM.
  • Eateries will be allowed to open earlier and close later – from 6 AM until 10 PM.

White Flag Initiative By Datuk Andrew Lim : Not Related To SOGO!

On 2 July 2021, SOGO Malaysia issued a statement, clarifying that they have nothing to do with the White Flag Initiative by Datuk Andrew Lim.

The management of SOGO Malaysia would like to clarify that SOGO did not and would not send any Private Messages to get support or solicit any donation from our Customers and Business Partners. All our charitable initiatives will be conducted through our own established secured channel to protect the privacy of all parties.

It is unlikely that this message has anything to do with Datuk Andrew Lim. Certainly, it was not announced by SOGO.

Please IGNORE the viral message, and DO NOT pass it along! Warn your family and friends too!

EMCO U-Turn : Up To 3 Per Car For Vaccination / Treatment!

There is an update in the EMCO 3.0 SOP – up to three (3) people can drive out to seek medical treatment or receive their vaccination!

 

EMCO U-Turn : Up To 3 Per Car For Vaccination / Treatment!

Yesterday, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) released the full EMCO 3.0 SOP for KL and Selangor.

The EMCO 3.0 SOP only allowed a single person to leave a household to purchase daily essentials.

Taxis and e-hailing rides, therefore, can only pick up a single passenger, for the same purpose.

The only exception was for medical care or vaccination – up to two (2) persons can drive in their personal vehicle to seek medical care or to get vaccinated.

However, many people felt that such a limit was not only impractical, it does not prevent spread of COVID-19.

After all, what does it matter if multiple people from the same household use the same car to get vaccinations?

It appears that the government belatedly realised that. Less than 24 hours later, they released an updated EMCO 3.0 SOP with a single change :

Up to three (3) people, including the driver, are allowed to leave to seek medical care, medicine and vaccination.

Unfortunately, two (2) person limit, including the driver, for taxis and e-hailing rides remained, so they are not practical for those who need to seek medical help or to get vaccinated…

Could there be another EMCO SOP “adjustment” coming up soon? Hopefully…

 

Selected EMCO 3.0 SOP For KL + Selangor!

Here is the selected EMCO 3.0 SOP for areas that will come under the EMCO in KL and Selangor :

  • All entry and exit into EMCO areas will be closed and controlled by the police (PDRM).
  • All residents in EMCO areas are FORBIDDEN to leave their house, except for one (1) representative to purchase essential goods within a radius of 10 kilometres.
  • KKM will conduct targeted screening tests on all residents in EMCO areas.
  • JKJAV will increase the rate of vaccination in EMCO areas.
  • Interstate and inter-district travel for the purpose of going for vaccination is ALLOWED by showing the appointment in MySejahtera, website or SMS.
  • Airports and ports are allowed to operate as normal.
  • Public transportation (train, bus, airport, taxi, ferry, e-hailing ride) are allowed to operate as normal, at 50% capacity.
  • Taxis and e-hailing rides are limited to just TWO (2) people in the vehicle, including the driver.
  • No one should leave their homes after 8 PM, except for emergencies or with police permission.
  • Only essential services, like utilities, cleaning and sewerage, are allowed to operate from 8 AM until 8 PM.
  • Factories producing food and daily essentials like rice, bread loaves, sugar, cooking oil, flour, fresh milk, milk powder, medicines and face masks are allowed to operate.
  • Only those providing essential services or those conducting official government work, with employer’s letter or valid worker’s pass, are allowed to work.

This is when you can fill in your consent forms. Just don’t sign them yet.

At the registration counter in Station 2, a volunteer will check your identification (MyKad or Passport) and register you.

If you have MySejahtera, you will be asked to scan the QR code to log that you have officially come in to be vaccinated.

Then you will head to Station 3, where a doctor will brief you on the COVID-19 vaccine, and you can ask your questions. This is also where you will sign the consent forms.

You will then move to the Vaccination Tent, where you will receive your COVID-19 vaccine.

The doctor / nurse administering the vaccine will show you the vial or vaccine label, so you know what vaccine you are receiving.

The doctor / nurse will also show you the syringe to confirm that it has the right amount of vaccine.

The empty syringe will also be shown to you after you receive your vaccination.

After vaccination, you will be asked to wait in a small holding area for 30 minutes. Then you will be called to the counter to submit your consent forms and receive your vaccination card.

If you are worried about any severe allergic reaction to the vaccine, you can sit a little while longer.

After that, you can leave the Bukit Jalil Stadium vaccination centre, and go home!

Don’t forget to take some pictures, and share with your friends and family on social media!

 

After Leaving Bukit Jalil PPV : Post-Vaccination Check List

After receiving your COVID-19 vaccination, you are FREE to do anything you want. There are NO RESTRICTIONS on your diet and daily life.

You can expect some mild side effects – these are signs of your immune system learning how to fight against COVID-19.

You can report any side effects you feel over the next few days in MySejahtera. If they persist, or get severe, please seek medical attention at the nearest government hospital.

MITEC Vaccination Centre : A Video Guide

We would like to thank JKJAV for these videos, which will help you get to the MITEC vaccination centre, and show you what to do when you get here.

 

MITEC Vaccination Centre : A Pictorial Guide!

I would like to thank Zoey Lee and her sister for providing the pictures and information for this pictorial guide.

Dropping Off + Parking!

As per the video guide above, if you need to drop off your vaccine dependents, please do so at the South entrance of MITEC.

If you are taking a taxi or e-hailing ride, make sure they drop you off at the South entrance of MITEC.

If you need to park your car, public parking is available near the MITEC South entrance – turn left into the MITEC basement car park.

Where To Go?

Whether you get dropped off, or park in the basement, make sure you head to the South entrance of MITEC.

You will need to check in using MySejahtera and scan your forehead temperature, as usual.

You will need to follow the guided path of Hall 03 (Dewan 03).

Try not to go too early. If you are early, you will be asked to wait in a waiting area until your time slot is called.

Fortunately, this waiting area is fully air-conditioned, unlike WTCKL.

MITEC Hall 3 has two entrances – one for those taking the 1st Dose, and one for those taking the 2nd Dose.

There will be volunteers ushering you, but make sure you enter the right entrance.

On entering MITEC Hall 3, you will be given a queue number, and your vaccination consent forms.

Then you will be seated in a large waiting area, where you can then fill in the consent forms. Do NOT sign the consent forms yet.

Because there are no tables, you should bring something stiff to write on (like a book), and a pen.

When your queue number is called, note the Counter number and head to the Registration and Consent area.

Go to your assigned Counter, where a volunteer will check your identification (MyKad or Passport) and register you.

If you have MySejahtera, you will be asked to scan the QR code to log that you have officially come in to be vaccinated.

There will also be a doctor at the same counter to explain the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination.

You will have the opportunity to ask the doctor any questions about the vaccination, and your medication. If you brought your medication, you may present it to the doctor.

After your queries are satisfied, you may then sign the consent forms, and the doctor will counter sign them.

After signing the consent forms, you will be assigned Station A or Station B by the volunteer.

Head to the Vaccination area, according to the assigned Station.

You will be seated in the waiting area to wait for your turn.

When your queue number is called, head to the assigned vaccination room, to receive your COVID-19 vaccine.

The doctor / nurse administering the vaccine will show you the vial or vaccine label, so you know what vaccine you are receiving.

The doctor / nurse will also show you the syringe to confirm that it has the right amount of vaccine.

The empty syringe will also be shown to you after you receive your vaccination.

Recommended : How To Read The Volume Of LDV Syringe Correctly?

After vaccination, you will be asked to wait in a small holding area until you are called to the counter to submit your consent forms and receive your vaccination card.

Then you will be ushered to the Observation Area, where you will need to sit for 15 to 30 minutes.

If you are worried about any severe allergic reaction to the vaccine, you can sit a little while longer.

After that, you can leave the MITEC vaccination centre, and go home!

Don’t forget to take some pictures, and share with your friends and family on social media!

 

After Leaving MITEC : Post-Vaccination Check List

After receiving your COVID-19 vaccination, you are FREE to do anything you want. There are NO RESTRICTIONS on your diet and daily life.

You can expect some mild side effects – these are signs of your immune system learning how to fight against COVID-19.

You can report any side effects you feel over the next few days in MySejahtera. If they persist, or get severe, please seek medical attention at the nearest government hospital.

Did Man Die From COVID-19 Contaminated Package?

Did a 20 year-old man die from COVID-19 after contracting it from a contaminated package?

Find out what’s this new viral story (pun intended!) and what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Man Dies From COVID-19 Contaminated Package!

There are two messages that have gone viral in the last few days on social media, about a young man who died from COVID-19, after contracting it from a contaminated package!

[29/05, 11:29 pm] My son, in Kuantan just passed away from covid. He was only 20 yrs old. He only had headache which he thought was migraine (3 hours) and took panandol but after 2 hours he died at home. No other symptoms at all but just headache. Fortunately my hubby and I had been vaccinated so not affeted at all. He is a student and study only at home. Never go anywhere. He got it because he took a courier package. The courier guy who stay in Batu 10 kuantan had covid . after my son death then forensic check only know he died from covid. Both of them wore mask. The courier guy is now in icu. Stage 4. Thats why now it has spread everywhere in Kuantan. [29/05, 11:29 pm] Kalau terima barang Dr kurier jgn terus ambil jemur dulu atau gantung d pagar sb kita ta tahu kurier ada covid ke tak
HATI-HATI……….

Hati2 bila kurier hantar barang.. (cdg: biarkan 1 jam+ dan basuh dettol)

From someone in Subang SS17 chat group:-
My neighbour’s son, Chan in Kuantan Taman Tas just passed away from covid. He was only 20 yrs old. He only had headache which he thought was migraine (3 hours) and took panandol but after 2 hours he died at home. No other symptoms at all but just headache. Fortunately his parent had been vaccinated so not affeted at all. He is student and study only at his house. Never go anywhere. He got it because he took a courier package. The courier guy who stay in Batu 10 kuantan had covid . after chan death then forensic check only know he died from covid. Both of them wore mask. The courier guy is now in icu.h Stage 4. Thats why now it has spread everywhere in Kuantan.

Beware, make sure you sanitize every parcel, letter or delivered foods package upon receiving.

 

No! He Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Contaminated Package!

Like 95% of what you read on social media, this is yet another piece of fake news. Here are the FACTS…

Fact #1 : No 20 Year-Old Man Was Brought In Dead In Pahang

Our sister site, The Rojak Pot has a running list of all COVID-19 deaths in Malaysia.

If you search the list, you will see that only two 20 year-old males died in Malaysia :

  • Case 252679 : 20 year-old Malaysian male, who passed away at the Sungai Buloh Hospital in Selangor.
  • Death #2417 : 20 year-old Malaysian male from KL, who passed away at the Sungai Buloh Hospital in Selangor.

As you can see, neither died in Pahang, and they both died in a hospital. Neither were brought in dead to the hospital.

Fact #2 : Pahang Health Department Called It Fake News

On 30 May 2021, the Pahang State Department denied that a 20 year-old man from Taman Tan passed away from COVID-19.

The Pahang State Health director, Datuk Dr. Bahari Che Awang Ngah said that only 58 people died in Pahang, and the youngest was a 23 year-old man.

He also said that the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital did not receive any BID (Brought In Dead) cases involving individuals in their 20s.

Fact #3 :  Fomite Transmission Is Rare

Early studies show that the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 can persist on surfaces for a long time.

However, later quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) studies show that the risk of getting infected through contact with contaminated surfaces / objects (fomites) is low.

How low? Generally, less than 1 in 10,000 contacts with a contaminated surface will result in a COVID-19 infection.

While not impossible, it is much harder to get infected from touching contaminated surfaces or objects, because you have to then touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands to get infected.

That is likely why there have been no COVID-19 clusters attributed to packages / parcels delivered by couriers or mail services.

Fact #4 :  COVID-19 Primarily Spreads Through People

The SARS-CoV-2 virus primarily spreads through droplets, as well as through aerosol, from infected people. It does not spread by touch.

Hence, the best policy for courier or mail services is to insist that EVERYONE must wear a face mask.

This prevents direct transmission by droplets, and greatly cuts down on aerosols. And best of all – it prevents the parcels and packages from being contaminated!

If everyone wears a face mask, fomites – contaminated surfaces or objects – will be virtually non-existent.

Fact #5 :  COVID-19 Is Easily Destroyed By Soap!

While Dettol can kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus, there is no need to go to such extremes. Simple soap and water will destroy the virus!

If you are super worried about contaminated packages, just wiped them down (if they’re wrapped in plastic) with soapy water, or alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

Recommended : Soap vs Sanitiser : Which Works Better Against COVID-19?

Fact #6 :  You Can’t Get Contaminated If You Sanitise Your Hands!

Instead of worrying so much about getting your hands contaminated with COVID-19, just sanitise them!

You can’t get COVID-19 from contaminated surfaces if you keep your hands clean!

Just wash your hands with soap and water after opening the parcel, or sanitise them using hand sanitiser (with at least 60% alcohol).

This isn’t just my advice, this is what the US CDC recommends too!

AstraZeneca Vaccine Opt-In Round 2 : Get Ready To Register!

Here are the details of Round 2 of the AstraZeneca vaccine opt-in programme.

Get ready to register for your FREE AstraZeneca vaccination against COVID-19!

 

AstraZeneca Vaccine Opt-In Round 2 : Get Ready To Register!

On 17 May 2021, the National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, announced that round 2 of the AstraZeneca vaccine opt-in programme will kick off on 23 May 2021.

On 21 May 2021, he then announced that registration for the AstraZeneca Opt-in Round 2 will start at 12 PM on Sunday, 23 May 2021.

This second round will only be available to people 60 years or older in :

  • Klang Valley : SelangorKuala Lumpur, Putrajaya
  • Penang,
  • Johor, and
  • Kuching and Miri in Sarawak

However, those who were on the waiting list of Round 1 will still get appointments in Round 2.

The government will also send AstraZeneca vaccine doses to elderly care homes.

You will be able to book via the VaksinCOVID website, like the first round, as well as at community clinics.

Recommended : AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine : How To Register For It!

 

AstraZeneca Vaccine Opt-In Round 2 For Below 60 Years Old

Don’t worry if you are below 60 years of age. The government will allow you to register for Round 2 of the AstraZeneca Opt-In Programme after 26 May 2021.

They earlier announced that Malaysia will receive ONE MILLION DOSES this month through COVAX, so sign up when you get the chance!

 

AstraZeneca Vaccine : Is It Safe To Get?

Many people are worried about the risk of getting blood clots from the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The fact is – the risk is incredibly small – certainly much, MUCH smaller than the risk of developing blood clots with COVID-19, which can be as high as 41% in positive patients, and up to 95% in severe COVID-19 cases.

Blood clots can also develop (through different mechanisms) with smoking and the use of oral contraceptive pills (OCP).

We created this table to better demonstrate the risk to you.

Risk Difference
Thrombocytopenia in
severe COVID-19 cases
Up to 95% 45,238X
Thrombocytopenia
in COVID-19 cases
Up to 41% 19,524X
Dying from COVID-19 Infection 0.25% to
10%
119X to 4762X
Thrombosis from OCP
(Adult)
Up to 0.46% 219X
Thrombosis from Smoking 0.18% 85.7X
Thrombosis from OCP
(Adolescents)
Up to 0.01% 4.8X
Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia
(AstraZeneca Vaccine)
0.0021% Baseline

So, is it safe to get the AstraZeneca vaccine that’s being offered to people age 18 years and above in Malaysia?

We can only tell you that the risk is exceedingly low. At most, 21 out of 1 million people who receive this vaccine will potentially develop this condition.

Based on the risk-benefit analysis performed by the EMA Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP), it is obvious that for a high-incidence country like Malaysia, the benefits far outweigh the risks.

More importantly, that we are aware of this particular side effect, both doctors and vaccine recipients can look out for the symptoms and quickly seek treatment.

Fact Check : New Deadly African COVID-19 Variant?

A voice message on a new deadly (South) African COVID-19 variant in Malaysia has gone viral on WhatsApp.

Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Fact Check : New Deadly African COVID-19 Variant?

A voice message on the (South) African variant of the COVID-19 virus in Malaysia has gone viral on WhatsApp.

The person speaking in Bahasa Malaysia claims that his family has 17 doctors, and this was an update from his doctor friends at the Rotary Club.

You can listen to it below, or read our English summary right below.

https://www.techarp.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Malaysia-South-Africa-COVID-19-variant-fact-check.mp3?_=1

According to his friends and relatives who are doctors, there are no beds available for those aged 70 years and above in Kuala Lumpur, and 48 to 60 people are dying every day.

He warned that this (South) African COVID-19 variant cannot be detected by any test, and strikes the lungs directly.

Its victims die in a day before reaching the hospital, feeling normal in the day but succumbing at night, without even a fever.

He said there are many cases of this new African COVID-19 variant in Kuala Lumpur, affecting people in their 30s and 40s. Even children of 6-7 years of age have died from it in KL.

He reminded everyone that the DG Health of Malaysia, Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah, warned that there will be 10,000 cases per day in Kuala Lumpur by the end of this week, or next week.

And there’s no way to stop that. These days, 40 to 60 people are dying every day in Kuala Lumpur. Soon, it will be hundreds of dead every day.

He also said that this is not just happening in KL, but also in Johor Bahru, Pasir Gudang, etc. And he warns that the hospitals will not accept those who are infected.

He pointed out India as an example, saying that dead bodies are lined up on the roadside. At the Delhi Airport, there are hundreds of bodies lined up on its road.

 

New Deadly African COVID-19 Variant In Malaysia? Not Quite

This voice message is yet more FAKE NEWS shared on WhatsApp… which should really be called the Fake News Network (FNN).

Any person who has to tell you how many doctors he has in his family obviously should not be trusted.

Even though he was trying to scare people into complying with common-sense COVID-19 precautions, we still need to clarify the facts, which are…

Fact #1 : The South African Variant Isn’t New

The man is possibly referring to the South African COVID-19 variant known as B.1.351., which isn’t really new.

It was first reported in South Africa in October 2020, and detected in Malaysia in March 2021 with four cases in Selangor.

Fact #2 : South African Variant Not As Deadly As UK Variant

Both the UK and South African variants are about 50% more infectious, but only the UK variant appears to be more deadly than the original SARS-CoV-2 virus.

According to the CDC, says there appears to be increased severity with the UK variant (B.1.1.7), but not with the South African variant (B.1.351).

On the other hand, the South African variant is more resistant to antiviral and antibody treatments.

It is true that the DG of Health, Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah said that VOCs (Variants of Concern) were spreading rapidly and linked to high fatality rates.

However, he was speaking in general about VOCs, of which three have been detected in Malaysia – B.1.351 (South Africa), B.1.1.7 (UK) and B.1.617.1 (India).

Fact #3 : No Hospital Has Turned Away COVID-19 Patients Yet

As far as we can determine, no public hospital in Malaysia has turned away any COVID-19 patients, not even if they are 70 years or older.

There is no need to, as not all COVID-19 patients need to be hospitalised. Most of them end up in low-risk COVID-19 quarantine centres at places like MAEPS.

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 situation in the Klang Valley is dire, with 79% of ICU beds in this area allocated to COVID-19 patients.

Fortunately, Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah announced on 19 May 2021 that they were able to increase the number of ICU beds for COVID-19 patients by repurposing normal wards.

Of course, this is not an ideal situation, but it allows the Health Ministry to avoid turning away patients with severe COVID-19.

Fact #4 : Highest Daily Death Toll In Malaysia Was 47

The claim that 48 to 60 people are dying every day in Kuala Lumpur is ludicrous, and FALSE.

The highest daily death toll in the entire country was 47 deaths on 18 May 2021.

Fact #5 : No Children Died In May 2021

The claim that children of 6-7 years old have died from this (South) African variant in KL recently is also FALSE.

The youngest person to die in May 2021 was a 17 year-old youth, who had leukaemia and passed away in Johor on 19 May 2021.

And the youngest person to die in 2021 was a 9 year-old boy, who passed away in Sabah in February 2021.

No 6- or 7-year old child ever died in Malaysia from COVID-19 to date.

Fact #6 : DG Health Never Said KL Would Hit 10,000 Cases By Next Week

The DG Health of Malaysia, Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah, did mention the possibility that Malaysia may hit 10,000 daily cases, or even 20,000 cases a day.

However, it was always in the context of the ENTIRE COUNTRY. He certainly never said that Kuala Lumpur would hit 10,000 cases by the end of this week, or next week.

Fact #7 : No Evidence Of Dead Bodies Lining Road At Delhi Airport

It is true that many people are dying in India, but we simply cannot find evidence of hundreds of dead bodies lining the road at Delhi Airport.

Rather, hundreds of unclaimed bodies of COVID-19 victims were found floating in the Ganges river. And bodies are piled up at crematoriums and make-shift cremation grounds.

Why would anyone place dead bodies at the Delhi Airport road???

Fact #8 : Ministry Of Health Called It Fake

The Malaysia Ministry of Health naturally labelled the audio as FAKE NEWS.

They also warned that those sharing the fake audio message could be prosecuted for sharing fake news.

So please stop sharing the audio message. Share this fact check with your family and friends instead!

If you are headed to the Universiti Malaya vaccination centre, check Melissa and Denise Leong’s video guide!

If you are headed to the UKM Bangi vaccination centre, be sure to check Sharmine Ishak’s experience too!

 

WTCKL Vaccination Centre : A Video Guide!

The AstraZeneca vaccination centre at WTCKL originally only had the capacity to serve 2,400 people per day.

That vaccination capacity has been more than tripled to 8,100 people, starting Saturday, 15 May 2021.

To cater for the expanded capacity, they introduced a new process, so please follow this video guide so you know how to get around in the WTCKL vaccination centre!

The video does not mention this, but your Station number is already assigned in your MySejahtera vaccination appointment.

Please follow the station number that is assigned to you in MySejahtera. If you are assigned Station 1, then enter through Station 1.

 

New WTCKL Vaccination Centre : A Pictorial Guide

The WTCKL vaccination centre will begin operation at 9 AM, and administer the last shot by 8:30 PM.

It is very well-managed inside, but it can be really chaotic outside, because it looks like they fail to cater to possibility that people would come early and crowd outside!

So here is a pictorial guide on what to expect when you get there.

Before You Leave

Before you leave, please bring any medication you may want to ask the doctor about, as well as a pen and if possible, something stiff to write on.

It can be really hot and humid in the afternoon, so please bring some water too in case you need to queue up.

And obviously, please wear a FACE MASK! 😀

Getting There + Parking!

If you are getting there, you can look for WTCKL or PWTC in Google Maps or Waze. Some of the signboards have not been updated, and will still show PWTC.

There is ample parking at the WTCKL, but you will find people parking along the road, so slow down because there are people walking on the road, or they may just open their doors…

If you are concerned about the parking costs, it’s RM 4 for the first hour, and RM 2 per hour subsequently. If your appointment is after 5 PM, then you only pay a flat rate of RM 5.

Some find this parking rate expensive, but seriously – the vaccination is FREE, and it’s the monsoon season, so I recommend that you park indoors!

They sealed the staircases and elevators, so you have to walk out of the parking lot to head to the main entrance.

I’m sure there is at least one lift for the disabled, but I didn’t locate it.

Where To Go?

When you reach the main entrance of WTCKL, you could see a huge crowd of people just waiting around.

DO NOT WAIT there with them!

Senior citizens and adults with disabilities should head straight for the entrance, or the contingent of police and RELA officers, to get priority entry.

Everyone else should head to the RIGHT of the main entrance and QUEUE UP.

Unfortunately, there are no signs or lane dividers. Counterintuitively, the Station (processing lane) queues are in reverse order!

This was the order on the first day, which could change, so please ask the police or RELA officer there.

They will also tell you which time slot is now queueing up. If you are NOT in the time slot, then you cannot queue up yet.

Once your Station and time slot is called, your line will move forward to the main entrance.

Here, volunteers will check to make sure you have the right vaccination appointment – the right station and time slot, and check your temperature.

Inside, you will be corralled into an air-conditioned holding area in the hall just inside.

This appears to be the original queue area that they planned for, with proper physical distancing markers.

Volunteers will tell you when it’s your turn to move out of this area and queue up to be let in.

This time, the stations are arranged from left to right – Station 1, Station 2 and Station 3.

Once your station is called, you will be led to another holding area to sit for a short while.

This is where you have to use MySejahtera to scan the QR code to check-in.

After going up two flights of escalators, you will arrive at Dewan Merdeka.

Just outside, you will be asked to scan your forehead temperature again, and you can use the hand sanitiser under the scanner if you wish.

Inside Dewan Merdeka, you will line up according to your Station for your turn to receive three copies of your queue number and your consent forms.

After your queue number is called, you will be seated in this area, where you will have some time to fill in the consent forms.

Please DO NOT SIGN them yet. You will only sign them after the doctor has explained the risks and benefits, and you have the opportunity to ask your questions.

There is no table and the volunteers do not have many pens to pass out, so if possible, bring your own pen and something to write on.

The volunteers will call for each row to stand up and head to the next hall. Just follow the line until you reach the end.

Here, a volunteer will let small groups of people in to seat in this waiting area, before you are individually assigned a station to register for your vaccination.

At the registration counter, you will use MySejahtera to scan the QR code to ascertain that you are now registering for your COVID-19 vaccination.

The volunteer will also check your MyKad / passport and key it into the system.

You will be assigned to a station with a doctor, who will explain to your group the risks and benefits of the COVID-19 vaccination.

This is where you can ask him/her any questions about the vaccine, your health or any medication you may be taking.

The doctor will also point out that you can continue with your daily life without any restrictions after your vaccination, and that you can report any symptoms you may experience in the MySejahtera app.

After all your doubts are cleared, you may sign your consent forms, and he will stamp and sign them too.

You will then be seated in this adjoining area to wait for your vaccination.

The volunteers will call up your queue number, and assign you to a vaccination room.

Each vaccination room has two vaccination stations. They may look intimidating in their PPE, but they are very friendly, so don’t be shy and say hi!

If you wish, you can ask to take a look at the vial to make sure you are getting the right vaccine. Heck, take a photo while you are at it!

To be frank, I didn’t even feel the needle! That’s because it’s a very small intramuscular needle.

Here is a tip if you are afraid of the pain, or anxious. Try to take pictures or selfies during the process. You won’t even notice the needle going in! 😀

It’s over before you know it, and on leaving the vaccination room, you will be asked to use MySejahtera to scan the QR code just outside to confirm that you just received your vaccination.

Then head for the exit which will bring you to this observation area below.

Hand over your consent forms to the volunteers there, and have a seat!

After about 15 minutes, they will call your queue number, and give you one copy of your consent form, with your physical vaccination card stapled to it.

You will then be asked to listen to a recorded message informing you that your next dose will be given 8-12 weeks later.

After that, you are free to leave! But don’t forget to take a photo just outside and share it with your family and friends!

Breaking : AZ Vaccination @ WTC (15-16 May) Rescheduled!

Just minutes ago, JKJAV announced that some 2,800 AstraZeneca vaccination appointments at WTC KL on 15-16 May will be rescheduled!

Here is what we know so far…

 

AZ Vaccination @ WTC (15-16 May) Rescheduled!

Just minutes ago, JKJAV – the Special Committee On COVID-19 Vaccine Supply – announced that a number of AstraZeneca vaccination appointments at WTC KL will be rescheduled.

This decision was taken to reduce overcrowding, as the number of daily COVID-19 cases has gone up.

There were 9,500 AstraZeneca vaccination appointments on each of those two days – a total of 19,000 people. To manage the crowd, they are reducing it to just 8,100 vaccination appointments per day.

To be clear – NOT ALL of the AstraZeneca vaccination appointments on those two dates will be rescheduled. Only some 2,800 people are affected.

AstraZeneca vaccination appointments on other dates at WTC are NOT affected.

AstraZeneca vaccination appointments at other vaccination centres are also NOT affected.

Those selected to be rescheduled will receive their new appointment dates from TOMORROW, 12 May 2021 onwards.

The new appointment dates will be from 17 to 23 May 2021.

This was the tweet by JKJAV on the AZ vaccination rescheduling at WTC for 15 and 16 May 2021.

Places IDed By HIDE COVID-19 System To Close For 3 Days!

Malaysia has ordered that all places identified by the new HIDE COVID-19 analytics system must close for three days!

Here are the latest details!

 

HIDE COVID-19 System : What Is It?

The HIDE (Hotspot Identification For Dynamic Engagement) System uses Big Data Analytics (BDA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to predict potential COVID-19 hotspots over a 7-day horizon.

To be clear, the list of places flagged by the HIDE system are NOT actual COVID-19 cluster locations.

Instead, they are the places that the HIDE system predicts COULD soon become COVID-19 cluster locations.

The HIDE system leverages MySejahtera check-ins, and other existing healthcare databases to make these predictions.

 

HIDE COVID-19 System : What Is It For?

By predicting potential COVID-19 hotpots, the HIDE system basically alerts businesses to either shut down, or quickly take precautions.

Now, premises flagged by the system do NOT need to shut down, unless required by enforcement authorities.

Instead, they are only advised to quickly undertake pre-emptive measures like :

  • Enhance gatekeeping (checking the risk status of MySejahtera check-ins, and deny individuals with ‘high risk’ status from entering);
  • Screen their workers for COVID-19, be it with RTK-Ag or RT-PCR tests; and
  • Enhance crowd control measures, especially areas with tight spaces, or that are prone to overcrowding.

By taking those measures, the risk of becoming a COVID-19 hotspot can be quickly lowered, and these premises will be taken off the HIDE list.

 

Places IDed By HIDE COVID-19 System To Close For 3 Days!

On 8 May 2021, Malaysia Senior Minister for Security Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaacob announced that all places identified by the new HIDE COVID-19 system must immediately close for three days, from 9 May until 11 May 2021!

Here is the full list of places flagged by the HIDE system as potential COVID-19 hotspots over the next 7 days.
