With such terrifying numbers, the country is now rushing to vaccinate any many ctizens as possible to reach herd immunity and break the chain of infection.
Today (July 16), a Fire and Rescue Department helicopter was deployed to deliver vaccines to a vaccination centre (PPV) in Baram, Sarawak after it was hit by massive floods.
In the 38-second clip, a group of staff waded through knee-deep water with an inflatable boat while waiting for the helicopter to hand over the vaccines.

Although two PPVs were forced to shut down due to the flood, Marudi assemblyman Datu Dr Penguang Manggil said he was confident that 80 per cent of the area’s population would be vaccinated by the end of August.
“20,000 people had completed their first dose as of today in two of our major PPVs, Beluru PPV and Marudi PPV.
I am confident that we can achieve herd immunity by the end of August,” he said.
