KUALA LUMPUR – The government has agreed that Sarawak and Kelantan be allowed to transition to Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan (PPN) on Monday, said Senior Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.
He said this decision was taken based on the current risk assessment undertaken by the Health Ministry and National Security Council.
The exit of these two states from Phase Three means that all states in the country will be in Phase Four, the final phase of the PPN.
“I would like to express my deepest appreciation and congratulations to all parties especially state governments for working hard to manage the pandemic situation in their respective states to achieve the threshold values set under the PPN,” he said in a statement today.
Nevertheless, Hishammuddin urged the people not to be complacent as COVID-19 is still a threat to their safety and health, especially with the emergence of the Omicron variant.
