The government has extended the conditional movement control order (CMCO) in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, and Sabah until January 14 next year thanks to the high Covid-19 cases in these areas.
The extension also covers Johor Baru and Batu Pahat in Johor; Seremban in Negri Sembilan; and two areas in Penang — Mukim 12 within the state’s south-west and Mukim 13 in its north-east.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that the CMCO implemented in Selangor will involve all its districts. Including Hulu Selangor, Kuala Selangor, and Sabak Bernam, which were earlier exempt from the restrictions.
“For 14 days, from December 14 to December 27, there have been a total of 8,194 Covid-19 positive cases in Selangor, and every one district within the state became red zones,” he said during a conference today.
He said Kuala Lumpur had recorded 4,379 new Covid-19 cases, while Sabah had recorded 3,243 cases during the identical period.
Ismail announced the top of the CMCO today in several areas of three states: Kulai in Johor; Port Dickson in Negri Sembilan; and Ipoh and Chemor in Perak.
He said the conditional movement control order was ended prior to scheduled because the Covid-19 cases in these areas were now in restraint.
