KUALA LUMPUR, July 16 — A group of retailer, mall and theme park associations have banded together to plead with Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari to alter mitigative measures that ensure an operating economy while incentivising fully vaccinated individuals to encourage inoculation take-up rates.

The group, in an open letter addressed to Amirudin issued today, lauded the Selangor government for the increasing rate of vaccinations, and in the same breath pleaded for an end to the implementation of district-wide enhanced lockdowns, saying a more targeted approach is needed.

“If there are indeed any high-risk hotspots, then targeted surgical and precision lockdowns building by building should only be conducted.

“This is so as not to cause undue damage and pain to the rakyat and businesses that do not contribute to the infection and allow all businesses to re-open and operate so that lives and livelihood can begin to repair and recover,” read the letter, which was signed off by Malaysia Shopping Malls Association president Tan Sri Teo Chiang Kok.
