He said the situation, however, will be under control as the country has a high vaccination rate.

“The healthcare system is prepared. Serious cases are declining. Let us overcome this wave together,” he tweeted yesterday.

Meanwhile, Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said in a Facebook posting that the readiness of the Ministry of Health (MOH) also includes the implementation of public health measures and coverage of periodic self-testing.
