Now to the uninitiated.. @KKMPutrajaya has been putting out our #COVID19 data in a website called #CovidNow as below πŸ‘‡πŸ» ..
which gives a full range of info like vaccination rates, hospitalization data, case numbers etc .. #Malaysia .. 1/n
covidnow.moh.gov.my Nevertheless, current #COVID19 data in #Malaysia definitely shows a rising trend. I'm sure many amongst us are seeing cases in our friends, acquaintances, work colleagues, students, church family etc..

Is there a commonality in the present cases, especially the clusters ? .. 2/n

Vaccines have this uncanny effect of reducing cases across the board !! And it covers not only the Fully Vaccinated, only 1 Dose.. but even the Unvaccinated !! #COVID19 #Penang #Vaccines link.medium.com/QDGDW2Vorkb Vaccines work in the same way like any other vaccines, which is to break the chain of infection. Here both the reservoir & host are impacted by vaccination.. leading to a reduced population carrying the virus.
