Malaysia plans for bubble


MALAYSIA’s Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry has revealed plans to implement a tourism bubble to the tropical archipelag­o of Langkawi, indicating that select island resorts will be chosen to pilot the travel initiative.

The Malaysian Government said it was now liaising with stakeholde­rs in Langkawi to create quarantine-free travel destinatio­ns for fully vaccinated visitors, and would only push ahead when the local population had reached herd immunity.

Fortunatel­y, the region’s population of 108,400 people has already seen 88,137 receive a double dose, meaning that over 80% of locals are now protected from COVID-19.
