Why Malaysia Did Not Get Covid-19 Vaccine Before Singapore And Indonesia?

Kuala Lumpur: The first phase of the Covid-19 vaccine will most likely begin at the end of February in Malaysia. During the three phases of the vaccine, the first jab of Covid-19 vaccine will be given to frontliners, who have been playing a significant role in order to contain the deadly virus. While the second phase will begin for high-risk groups. And members aged 18 and over will be under the third phase of the vaccine campaign.

Neighbouring countries like Singapore and Indonesia have already started Covid-19 vaccine campaigns in their countries. Singapore was the first country in Asia to begin vaccinating its health care workers, starting in December last week.

President of the Association of Public Health Physicians of Malaysia Datuk Dr Zainal Afrfin Omar has confirmed that Malaysia will be the third country in Southeast Asia to begin the Covid-19 vaccine, starting in the last week of February. Malaysia is not slow in getting vaccines compared to other countries, he said in an interview with Harian Metro.

Indonesia was part of China’s Covid-19 vaccine trials and allowed Chinese company Sinovac Biotech Ltd to conduct vaccine tests on its soil. Chinese-made CoronaVac vaccine first arrived in Indonesia in the first week of December last month.

The health expert Oman stated that Singapore has large financial funds and they have made reservations in advance for the supply of vaccines and this involves transactions.

US-based Covid-19 vaccine Pfizer will provide more than 12 million doses to Malaysia. British-Swedish multinational pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca will also send Covid-19 vaccine to Malaysia.

Archaeologist Finds Mankind’s Oldest Animal Cave Painting In Indonesia

Kuala Lumpur: Archaeologists working in Indonesia have discovered the oldest cave artwork in a remote valley on the island of Sulawesi. The art depicts a life-sized picture of a wild pig that was made at least 45,500 years ago.

Scientists described it as the earliest evidence of human settlement in the region. The Sulawesi warty pig measures 136 by 54 centimetres, and was painted using dark red ochre pigment and has a short crest of upright hair.

Maxime Aubert, co-author of the report published in the Science Advances journal, said the painting could be much older because the dating that they are using only dates the calcite on top of it.

“The people who made it were fully modern, they were just like us, they had all of the capacity and the tools to do any painting that they liked,” he added.

While, the previous oldest art painting was discovered by the same team in Sulawesi, which depicted a group of part-human, part-animal figures hunting mammals, and was created at least 43,900 years ago.
