This initiative is on top of the previous RM260 billion Prihatin Rakyat announced by Putrajaya, since the outbreak.

The premier further thanked frontliners for relentlessly fighting the outbreak from day one, and Malaysians in general, for abiding by the rules set to keep the spread of the disease contained.
