KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia’s health experts and the opposition have called for a faster Covid-19 vaccine roll-out as cases surge, with questions raised over the supply of vaccines.
The country’s vaccination programme kicked off on Feb 24 but opposition politicians have criticised it as proceeding at a glacial pace.
“To reduce the number of daily confirmed cases of Covid-19, the government must make sure the control and prevention programme of Covid-19 takes place effectively,” said Dr Kamarul Imran Musa, a medical epidemiologist and biostatistician who is an associate professor at Universiti Sains Malaysia.
