MALAYSIA TO MOVE TO COVID-19 ENDEMIC PHASE IN OCTOBER 2021
 
       
  Malaysia is expected to move from COVID-19 pandemic into the endemic phase by the end of October, said the newly-minted Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar. He said this move was in line with the government's target to ensure at least 80 per cent of the adult population in the country is fully vaccinated by then. Also present were Health director-general, Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah and his deputy, Datuk Dr Chong Chee Kheong.

Even though the country is entering an endemic phase, the people would still have to adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOP) and self-control to enable more sectors to be reopened with new norms being practised, he added. He said the government will announce several measures to simplify the existing SOP so that it is clear and not complicated for people to practice.
 
     
  "This is consistent with the approach of countries that have gone from total containment to endemic phases, where new norms were introduced for us to live safely and healthily even though the virus is still among us," he explained.

Malaysia will host the ASIA PANDEMIC CONGRESS & EXPO 2022 which will be one of the largest gatherings of medical, government, NGOs and industry experts and professionals in Asia. Supported by the Ministry of Health, Malaysia, Malaysia Medical Council and the Malaysia Medical Association, the Congress, themed: Solutions For Pandemic Preparedness, Response, Treatment and Management” will focus on key issues on managing future pandemics and fostering co-operation among Asian countries. Over 60 top industry experts and practitioners from key agencies including WHO will deliver papers on latest developments and share experiences in the 2-day Congress. The Congress and Expo is expected to welcome 250 exhibitors, 500+ delegates and 10,000 trade visitors from 20 countries.
