Malaysia to start vaccination drive early as first doses arrive

Malaysia has moved up its Covid-19 inoculation drive by two days as the first batch of vaccines arrived in the Southeast Asian nation. 

Malaysia aims to vaccinate at least 80 percent of its 32 million people within a year as it pushes to revive an economy that, slammed by virus-related curbs, recorded its worst slump in over two decades in 2020. 

It has imposed more lockdowns this year amid a fresh wave of virus infections. The country has recorded 280,272 cases and 1,051 deaths.
