KUALA LUMPUR – Health Minister Dr Zaliha Mustafa has confirmed that Covid-19 variants and sub-variants in China have also been detected in Malaysia based on Beijing’s reports to the World Health Organisation (WHO). 

Referring to available information, the Covid-19 vaccine is effective in providing protection against severe symptoms from the virus and should reduce hospital admissions, she said in a statement today. 

In addition, the bivalent vaccine will also be supplied to Malaysia after recently being given conditional registration approval by the Drug Control Authority. 

The minister’s statement comes after many foreign countries moved to temporarily tighten restrictions on travellers from China to curb the spread of Covid-19 within their borders.
