Kanger International Bhd (Kanger) said it has received support from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation Malaysia (MOSTI) to purchase Covid-19 vaccines for private sector use in Malaysia.
In a statement today, the company said the National Institutes of Biotechnology Malaysia (NIBM) -- an agency under MOSTI -- has no objections for the company to liaise with the China National Pharmaceutical Group Corporation (Sinopharm) on the purchase of the vaccines.
The Perlis Islamic Affairs and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs) has maintained the requirement for members of the congregation to bring their own prayer mats when performing prayers at mosques.
The Raja Muda of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail, said the decision was made after assessing the need to comply with health and safety standard operating procedures (SOP) to avoid the potential transmission of the Covid-19 virus in the state.
Student attendance in Perlis schools has dropped below 50%, following parents’ concern over the Covid-19 outbreak linked to the Sivagangga Cluster in Kuala Sanglang.
State Education Committee chairman Roziena Ahmad said this drop was also after the authorities enforced the Targeted Enhanced Movement Control Order (TEMCO) in Kampung Tanah Timbul and Kampung Kuala Sanglang last Saturday.
