The first meeting for the Special Task Force Covid-19 at the Johor state level was held today. Also present were Menteri Besar of Johor YAB Dato’ Haji Hasni bin Mohammad, Johor State Secretary YB Dato’ Haji Azmi bin Rohani, Johor Deputy State Secretary (Management) YB Dato’ Haji Mohd Noh Bin Ibrahim, Health and Environment EXCO YB Tuan Vidyananthan A/L Ramanadhan, Johor Health Department Director YB Dato’ Dr. Aman bin Rabu as well as health and pandemic management experts.

The Covid-19 Special Task Force will monitor and improve processes used for the screening, isolating, monitoring and treating system of Covid-19 patients to ensure the outbreak’s situation is always under control. Contact tracing needs to be accelerated so that it is done within 24 to 48 hours, and vaccination rates must also be increased.

Johor needs to be prepared for the transition from a pandemic to an endemic. I am confident that the selected members of this Task Force, which are inclusive and involving various government agencies, experts from universities, private sectors, Malaysian Armed Forces, and NGOs in Johor, will be able to fight the Covid-19 pandemic more effectively and positive cases will begin to decline through effective public health measures and the use of the latest technology.
