According to New Straits Times, Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said that Penang is aiming to enter Phase Three of NRP within the next month.

In order to do so, all vaccination centres (PPV) have to ensure that 40% of the state’s adult population will receive two doses of vaccine by next month.

“Based on the operations at the PPVs, the maximum dose capacity which we need and must achieve is 20,000 doses daily. The state Health Department, together with the state-level Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF), must ensure that this target is met,” Chow said.

The Chief Minister also urged Penangites to work together to ensure that the thresholds of Phase Three of NRP are met.

To ease into Phase Three of NRP, the average daily cases will have to drop to below 2,000. The public healthcare system also has to be at a satisfactory level, with the rate of bed usage in ICUs dropping to a sufficient level. Not to mention 40% of the country’s population have to receive the second dose of the vaccine.

So far, Penang had surpassed the vaccination rates of 10 per cent for the adult population with 10.1 per cent. The usage of Intensive Care Units (ICU) is at moderate level, while the Capacity to Respond is at a sufficient level.
