“This is to accelerate vaccination or take measures in public health initiatives. This is to ensure public health care facilities are adequate to meet the spike in cases.

“We must bear in mind the higher death cases and we have no more time to wait.

“We have to take appropriate action to meet the spike in cases.

“I also thank the donors for their donation today,” added Chow.
