Siti Sarah’s death comes as Malaysia is easing Covid restrictions for those who are fully vaccinated against the virus on Tuesday, even as the country goes through its worst wave. The relaxation of the rules, which allows vaccinated residents greater leeway to travel, play sports, and go out to dinner, has generated mixed reactions.
Opposition parties have urged rethinking a “badly thought-out reopening” for fear it would further overwhelm the healthcare system. On Monday, Malaysia recorded 17,236 Covid infections and 212 deaths, bringing the country’s number of Covid deaths to 10,961. About 27.5% of the 31.95 million inhabitants have been fully vaccinated so far.
