PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): The Health Ministry (MOH) on Friday (Oct 8) successfully carried out sports activities in conjunction with the National Sports Day (NSD) 2021 celebration to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Its Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, who spearheaded the sports activities, said NSD’s mission was to cultivate sports among the people as a way of life, which directly helped MOH’s Malaysian National Health Agenda (ANMS).
He said MOH as the ministry responsible for public health, should be an example to other ministries and the people on a healthy lifestyle.
“A healthy lifestyle is not only sports, but also taking care of nutrition, adequate rest and regular health check-ups to encourage the people to adopt a healthy lifestyle,” he said.
NSD 2021 at MOH level was implemented in a hybrid manner and in accordance with standard operating procedures (SOP), which involves “combat wellness” and “virtual run” activities.
The launching ceremony of NSD 2021 will be officiated by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob at the Ministry of Youth and Sports in Putrajaya on Saturday (Oct 9).
Khairy said NSD could be held this year due to the improving Covid-19 pandemic situation. – Bernama
