Concerned with the Covid-19 situation in the country, the Health Ministry proposed that interstate travel should be postponed for the upcoming Hari Raya Aildilfitri celebrations, reported Bernama.

Health Minister Dr Adham Baba said the proposal was also due to the complaints and appeals from various quarters for the government to delay lifting the ban on interstate travel.

“As we all know, most states are currently under Conditional Movement Control Order and Recovery MCO until April 28. As daily cases are still rising and not yet stable, this interstate travel needs to be postponed.

“The vaccination programme (National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme) is still ongoing,” he told a press conference after a book launch at his office.

According to MOH, Malaysia recorded a number of 2,148 new Covid-19 cases today (15 April), with a total of 367,977 active cases.
