A great post about Malaysia.
More economic sectors to operate in Penang from today
A total of 19 economic sectors in Penang can now operate following the latest update by the National Security Council (NSC) with regard to the economic activities for the states under phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).
Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said as of yesterday (Aug 16), many economic sectors have already been allowed to resume their business.
“With the latest information that we received yesterday from the NSC, we no longer need to wait for the 50% of the adult population to be fully vaccinated before these economic sectors are allowed to resume their operation.
“Previously, this was a prerequisite for these economic sectors to resume business.
“In fact, if we were to remain with the original criteria, then I think most of the states would not be able to achieve the required vaccination rate.
“Penang, being ranked either 6th or 7th, so far has only achieved 37 percent of vaccination rate of inoculating its adult population with both the doses,” said Chow.
Chow also added that the mayors from the respective councils, Penang Island City Council and Seberang Perai City Council would be making further announcement on the matter.
Here are the updated SOPs as of 16 Aug 2021.
