Those five states had the following new reported cases yesterday:
Kelantan: 89
Perak: 101
Pahang: 200
Terengganu: 51
Perlis: 2

Here's what Phase 2 actually means and why these 5 states have been allowed to move on from Phase 1: Five states to enter Phase 2 of NRP on July 5

Not surprising that the numbers are much higher in the most industrialized states with also much higher population density:
Selangor: 3,047
WP Kuala Lumpur: 616

It's typical that the government keeps flipflopping between what they want to do on a daily basis but it causes a lot of confusion and frustration among the population.
Interstate travel would be allowed from November at the earliest. Yet the states with people that have the most money to spend on domestic tourism are in Selangor and KL. Pretty much the entire country's economy depends on these states.

At least some identified industries are allowed to operate and some people can earn money in those 5 states. A bit more freedom as well(dining out, cut hair etc etc). Even a game of badminton(non-contacted sport).

Yes, I got both my shots while I was still living in Switzerland. And it's updated in the Malaysian app too. I also have my own gear, as I wouldn't want to use a rental. I fully plan to be cautious. I'm actually hoping to get enough people at work to fill the boat. Maybe we can dive and work as a bubble...lol.
