PETALING JAYA: The federal and Johor state governments must ramp up the vaccination programme in the state, says former energy, science, technology, environment and climate change minister Yeo Bee Yin.

This comes following a worrying upward trend of new daily Covid-19 positive cases and deaths in Johor, with a more than 150% increase from mid-July until now. Today, Johor reported 1,300 cases.

Despite the rise, Johor’s vaccination remains the second-lowest in Malaysia with only 17.8% of adults fully immunised against Covid-19.

Yeo, who is Bakri MP, called on the government to adopt Selangor’s vaccination programme through Operation Surge Capacity (OSC).

“Run OSC in Johor to ramp up the vaccination programme as soon as possible, just like how the Selangor state government is working with the federal government to run OSC in (the) Klang Valley,” she said in a Facebook post today.
