For Dr Kuljit Singh, head of the Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia (APHM), there should really be no reason to worry about the influx of Chinese tourists, even considering the expected spike in tourist arrivals over the Chinese New Year period.
In fact, he notes that Malaysia is in a good position to face another COVID-19 wave, following the experiences of 2020 and 2021, which saw the public and private healthcare sectors and even the Malaysian military combining effectively to handle the pandemic.
Commenting on the immigration and health measures to screen inbound travellers, he remarks further that these are welcome.
Nevertheless, there are many other possible ways for COVID-19 variants to reach the country besides via immigration entry and exit points.
“(The measures) are good to some extent but they will never be a 100 per cent way of preventing the virus from entering into the country,” Dr Kuljit said.
