A total of 40 Ministry of Health (MOH) staff who had completed two doses of injections were detected to be infected with Covid-19, according to Health DG Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

Of that number, nine cases became infected within more than two weeks after the second dose and another 31 cases became infected in less than two weeks.

“This clearly shows that public health measures including compliance with standard operating procedures (SOPs) still need to be implemented because Covid-19 can still be infected even after taking an injection, but with less serious symptoms,” Dr Noor Hisham said on his Facebook page earlier this morning.

“Although vaccine gives a glimmer of hope to fight against Covid-19, make no mistake that we can relax all the public health measures after vaccination,” he added.
