1 SOP and 9 guidelines as the country ‘Transitions to the Endemic Phase’

The Ministry of Defense on 9 March 2022 announced that there will only be one SOP but nine guidelines as Malaysia transitions into the COVID-19 endemic phase.

The single SOP in the ‘Transition to Endemic’ phase has been simplified from the 181 SOPs that were enforced by the National Recovery Plan and will still be enforced under Act 342 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988.
