The Works Ministry through the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) has offered COVID-19 vaccines to 40,000 construction workers. This programme would expedite the vaccination rate among economic frontliners. Under the programme, private sectors will need to prepare their own teams, certified medical personnel and vaccination centres (PPV) while the supply and delivery of the vaccines will be provided free by the government.
The mega COVID-19 vaccination centre (PPV) at the Mines International Exhibition and Convention Centre (MIECC) is expected to deliver some 10,000 doses daily soon, as part of the government's efforts to ramp up the National Immunisation Programme (NIP). Its current daily capacity stood at about 5,000 vaccine doses since its opening on Monday. The average daily doses administered is expected to pick up within 21 days.
The Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Conference of Rulers have said on 16 June, that there is no need for the ongoing State of Emergency to be extended past its original end date of August 1, 2021.
Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal Tan Sri Syed Danial Syed Ahmad said in a statement that this was one of seven recommendations which resulted from the special Conference of Rulers meeting at Istana Negara earlier today.

Being digital or not is no longer an option – it is a given. Where business leaders need to put their focus is how fast they want their business to realise the value of new innovations, of new digital investments. It’s about being able to do digital at speed.
‘Gradual’ and ‘steady’ are fading fast from digital transformation rhetoric. Speed has become the crucial factor to business performance, the dividing line between businesses that thrive, and those who fall behind.
Hospital Ampang has close to 150 COVID patients now in, and for the past few weeks the hospital has been expanding the wards in terms of manpower, equipment, and proper isolation spaces.
Both patients and clinicians need equipments urgently to be able to do their work.
