As the number of Covid-19 cases rises globally, the demand for a vaccine to fight against the coronavirus becomes stronger.
Researchers around the world are working around the clock to find a vaccine for the virus which has caused the unfortunate pandemic.
With much effort placed, it means that a fast-tracked vaccine could come to market anywhere from the end of 2020 to the middle of 2021.
The Malaysian media is active in updating the public about the development of the Covid-19 vaccine.
In recent days, the exposure on the vaccine appears to be more vigorous, as issue on vaccine breaks down into smaller segments.
While the vaccine is still in development, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Khairy Jamaluddin actively updates the public on the country’s progress.
This reflects a positive image on Khairy as the Minister in the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), appearing as the “spokesperson” of vaccine as the public anxiously waits for its arrival.
In fact, in the last 30 days, Khairy shows a strong footing when it comes to vaccine.
Having said so, top issue surrounding the Minister also reflects his involvement with the recent political shenanigan i.e. the Sabah state election and on Anwar Ibrahim claiming majority.
As the number of positive Covid-19 infection continues to rise in the country, Khairy should make sure he does not lose his focus to the politics that is happening in the country as there are narratives that could jeopardize his position with its development.
