More than 10% of the 1,010 Covid-19 cases detected in Sabah in the last 24 hours were people who had been fully vaccinated, Sabah local government and housing minister Masidi Manjun revealed in his daily Covid-19 briefing today.
He said that 130 cases were those who had been fully vaccinated while another 125 had already received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
“In comparison, the number of fully vaccinated patients who tested positive in the previous two days was 87 on Aug 1 and 92 yesterday,” he added.
Yesterday, Masidi said the rising number of those who were fully vaccinated catching the virus showed that people were getting complacent and that there was not enough adherence to the SOPs.
Masidi, who is Sabah’s official Covid-19 spokesman, said the remaining patients comprised 473 people who have yet to be vaccinated and 282 who were below the age of 18, thus not eligible to receive the vaccine.
“Of the 282, 12 were babies aged below 12 months while 84 were children aged between one and five. Another 186 were children aged six to 17.”
Meanwhile, he said that 163 localities in Sabah were under the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) at present, with the state capital registering the most at 35. - FMT
