JOHOR BAHRU (March 1): Johor is envisioning negotiations on travel arrangements between Malaysia and Singapore, including reopening of borders, following the implementation of the Covid-19 immunisation programme in the country.
Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Ir Hasni Mohammad said those receiving vaccination would be given a certificate as proof that they had been vaccinated.
"Opening of borders, the green travel bubble, all other arrangements should be considered upon completion of vaccination," he told reporters at a ceremony before receiving his Covid-19 vaccination at Dewan Muafakat Johor Taman Adda here today.
He said this is also taking into account health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah's statement that the government would only revisit the movement control order (MCO) when 80% of the population had been inoculated.
On Jan 30, the Singapore government suspended the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) with Malaysia for three months starting from Feb 1, following a spike in Covid-19 cases worldwide, including in Malaysia.
At today's ceremony, Hasni was the first recipient of the Covid-19 vaccine at the state level, to be followed by 35,100 frontliners for the first phase of the Covid-19 immunisation programme.
