The vaccinated, posing no risk to the vaccinated, should be spared lockdown.
MySejahtera, SOP, keep virus risks down, lockdown after lockdown perhaps no solution.
There are no indications on the fate of lockdown Phase 2, 3 and 4. It may be a whole new ballgame if the Agong reconvenes Parliament, even if he doesn’t appoint a new Prime Minister “as soon as possible”.
Lockdown Phase 1, which began Tues 1 June 2021, continues indefinately, as the three threshholds have not been met viz. less than 4K virus cases a day, moderate hospitalisation in intensive care, and 10 per cent of the population vaccinated.
The good news may be that no new variant has emerged after Alpha in the UK, Beta in South Africa, Gamma in Brazil and Delta and Delta+ in India.
M’sians need clarity on the pandemic for the way forward, otherwise “public cooperation” will be lacking.
It’s not clear why those vaccinated two doses must also comply with lockdown. They are reportedly protected from the virus for six to 12 months. Being carriers, they may infect the unvaccinated but not those vaccinated.
Since the unvaccinated are at home, under lockdown, there’s no risk the vaccinated will infect them. The CV-19, being very contagious, remains a non-issue.
The case for lockdown arises from preventing the public healthcare system collapsing and imploding under the weight of hospitalisation.
So far, no figures have been made available on breathing difficulties which need oxygen support at the hospital, at home, the number in self-isolation at home under treatment for symptoms and those in quarantine for 14 days.
Those quarantined can be housed at the many hotels which have ample rooms available. The gov’t should seriously consider paying the hotels used for quarantine purposes. It will prevent the hospitality sector collapsing and imploding.
New studies worldwide show that lockdown does not bring more benefits than the SOP. Also, M’sia has the MySejahtera App which tracks virus risks.
These studies include those done by the University of Southern California, the Rand Corporation in the US and Stanford University. The European Journal of Clinical Investigation has published peer-reviewed studies.
Two studies in the journal Nature begged to differ. The Imperial College London, linked with Bill Gates, did one study. The other study was done by scientists in the US.
The Great Barrington Declaration, a controversial statement by infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists, encourages gov’ts to lift lockdown restrictions to achieve herd immunity among the young and healthy people, while focusing protections on the elderly. https://gbdeclaration.org/about/
The MySejahtera App must not only be made compulsory but enforced. It also hosts the vaccination certificate.
If there’s no lockdown, the public will get used to the SOP and MySejahtera. There’s no SOP and MySejahtera at home.
When the lockdown ends, as it must eventually, later if not sooner, there’s no guarantee that there would not be new spikes in the form of clusters, surges and waves.
Health Dept DG, Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, has been quoted as saying in the media that transmission and spread no longer may need crowding at the local community level. He fears that the virus has spread everywhere, outside the home. Hence, new infections no longer need clusters, surges and waves.
The media may not have realised the significance of this statement which paints the utter hopelessness on the pandemic in M’sia in the absence of herd immunity.
The gov’t knows when herd immunity can be reached.
So far, it has not set firm milestones which will chart progress on beating the pandemic. It may have some idea, judging from media statements, but firmness remains the missing component on the vaccination programme.
There’s no evidence that the gov’t may be “frantically” reaching out to the people. It appears to be simply issuing press statements and waiting for the people to turn up voluntarily at the vaccination centres. In the US, the vaccinated are eligible for lucky draws paying out millions.
The National Security Council (NSC) sends out SMS now and then on vaccination and related issues. It hardly comments on the strong anti-vaccination movement in M’sia. The last SMS was on Mon 21 June.

The vaccine does not kill the virus. Nothing can kill a virus since it’s not a living thing.
The virus is a form of intelligence.
It will only disappear if it has no place to go or is outside the host body. The fatty layer covering the virus bursts in the atmosphere within four hours, some experts claim after 72 hours.
The virus replicates by copy pasting. Errors creep in. The virus can correct minor errors. If the errors are serious, a variant emerges.
Variant may be perceived by the immune system as less aggressive or more aggressive.
If more aggressive, existing vaccines may not be able to moderate the overreaction of the immune system. The overreaction unleashes various symptoms.
There are treatments for the various symptoms.
If there are too many symptoms, the patient may not make it. One per cent of those “infected”, die.
In fact, the virus does not infect the patient.
It’s an immune system problem.
