Spike in Covid-19 cases not affecting car sales

PETALING JAYA: The current Covid-19 situation is not affecting car sales, thanks to the government’s sales tax holiday which ends on Dec 31. Many car companies are also throwing in rebates and discounts on top of the tax holiday introduced by the government to stimulate the local automobile industry.

Nurul Shazwani Suhaimi, 24, said she bought a new car after finding out about the sales tax exemption.

“I was planning to buy my first car next year as I just started working early this year. I have been saving up for the down payment.

“However, I realised that I needed a car urgently due to the nature of my work.

“I went to a showroom in August with my parents and found out there was a tax holiday and I saved up to RM2,000, ” said the content reviewer who chose a Perodua Myvi 1.5 Advance.

Lane County Public Health reported 58 additional positive COVID-19 cases Friday, a one-day record.

Contact tracers on Friday gathered information about the new cases. Jason Davis, a spokesman for Lane County Public Health, said tracers found a majority came from college-age students, particularly 19- and 20-year-olds.

While the county’s initial post-Labor Day spike was traced back mostly to intimate social gatherings, the county is now seeing multiple outbreaks related to large college parties as well.

“We have to stop these parties,” Davis said. “There is no room to have those kind of social gatherings right now and especially if we’re asking people to not have birthday parties or weddings.”
