KOTA KINABALU: A total of 181 out of 1,002 new Covid-19 cases reported in Sabah today were detected among those who have received their vaccination, said Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun.
In a statement today, he said this shows that those who are vaccinated can still be infected if the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are not being complied with.
SOP adherence should be taken seriously among the community in an effort to curb the spread of Covid-19 that is still raging in Sabah at the moment, he added.
"Self-discipline is a crucial component in health care apart from the need to get vaccinated. Every day we strive to vaccinate more people.
"Yesterday, the Sabah Health Department has administered 43,792 doses of vaccine and we will further enhance this ability to achieve 50,000 doses per day.
"Maximum immunisation capacity, as well as an uninterrupted supply of vaccines, will
enable Sabah to achieve herd immunity more quickly," said Masidi.
Out of the 181 cases, 94 of them have received their first dose while the rest have been fully vaccinated.
