The registration exercise was carried out through the MySejahtera application, online as well as manually by using a form obtained from the district health offices.

“IOW announcements through loudspeakers are implemented at least 50 times daily through the department’s mobile unit vehicles and each announcement we target between 40 and 50 people,“ he said.-BERNAMA
