PETALING JAYA: Putrajaya needs to consider several factors objectively before deciding to reopen economic sectors, after clusters in the manufacturing sector had led to a surge of Covid-19 cases in Selangor, a health think tank says.

The Galen Centre for Health and Social Policy said the government must ask itself three things:
  • Is the epidemic under control?
  • Is the healthcare system able to cope with a resurgence of cases that may arise after the relaxing of measures and reopening of sectors?
  • Is the public health surveillance system able to cope, detect, manage cases, and identify areas where there is a resurgence of cases?
These three questions, Galen CEO Azrul Mohd Khalib said, could help determine whether restrictions can be released slowly or not at all.
