On the other side, a standard operating procedure (SOP) for next month’s Deepavali celebration will be formulated by the National Security Council ( NSC). Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said he would announce the SOP upon the special ministerial meeting’s approval. He also mentioned that the council will detail the do’s and don’ts to the public to ensure that the SOPs are strictly practiced during the festive season.

Today’s case drop comes as good news for the nation. Let us continue joining hands as fellow Malaysians and break the Covid-19 chain. Together, we can!

In the meantime, until a vaccine is developed, stay safe, stay healthy and don’t forget to adhere to the SOP’s!
