COMMENT | The Covid-19 figures for the past 24 hours are frightening. A total of 1,884 cases nationally with 1,203 in Selangor alone.
The Covid vaccine results are much better than people had dared to hope, but it is going to take six months or more to vaccinate enough people in Malaysia to achieve herd immunity.
For the time being, we have to rely on masks, identifying cases, isolating them and their close contacts, as well as movement control measures.
But what if we have a group of people who cannot afford to come forward for testing or for quarantine?
