What you need to know:

  • Government has made only limited progress in mass vaccination, which has been fronted by experts as the best way to cut back on both infections and deaths to enable the country open up sooner.
  • Scientists say although there is a shortage of vaccines, some of the vaccinated people are getting infected through direct exposure to the virus.

With just 12 days to the end of the 42-day lockdown, government has no clear exit strategy to return the country to normal amid shortage of vaccines and poor compliance to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) to stop the spread of Covid-19.
