Malaysian PM said government planning to buy more COVID-19 vaccine

Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has said that the country is planning to buy more COVID-19 vaccines so as to cover at least 60-70% of the population under the immunization program as compared to the present coverage of 30%. 

“As for Malaysia, we have already got 30 per cent. I have instructed Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba and Khairy Jamaluddin (Science, Technology and Innovation Minister) to negotiate and increase it from 30 per cent to 60 or 70 per cent. “So far, this has been the advice of the Health Ministry…  

If it can be increased to that number, then more people will be protected from the coronavirus,” the Prime Minister said.
