KUALA LUMPUR – The surge in vaccination rate in the Klang Valley is beginning to show great results, with the Covid-19 situation in hospitals and quarantine centres here set to improve drastically by next month.

Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said intensive care units (ICUs) in health facilities will also be much less crowded by the end of September, after Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, and Putrajaya achieved herd immunity among their adult population.

Klang Valley is currently only second to Labuan in terms of percentage of fully vaccinated adults, with 86.9% of the adult population immunised as of yesterday, while 109.9% have received at least a single dose of the vaccine.

“We know that with increasing vaccination, the severity of infection is less. There will also be less hospital admissions plus less utilisation of ICU beds,” Dr Noor Hisham told The Vibes today.

“But ICU bed utilisation, which is the mean hospital stay, will only be obvious after three to four weeks.”
