DAILY COVID-19 CASES IN KELANTAN ALSO INCLUDE INDIVIDUALS WHO COMPLETED THEIR VACCINATIONS - MOHD AMAR

KOTA BHARU -- The Kelantan government has urged all its citizens to comply with the standard operating procedure (SOP) even though they have completed their COVID-19 vaccinations.

Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah said COVID-19 infections in the state remained above 1,000 a day and based on statistics, individuals who have completed their vaccinations were also infected.

"According to the statistics tabled at the state executive council meeting yesterday, COVID-19 infections among those who have yet to be vaccinated, those who are partially vaccinated and those who completed their vaccinations are nearly the same.

"This shows that those who have completed their vaccinations have neglected to comply with the SOP and ended up infected, even though they are in category one and two,” he told reporters at Panchor, Pengkalan Chepa here today.
