KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 20 — The Federal government will impose the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) in Kampung Saguking Laut and Kampung Sebor Baru in Labuan from October 21 to November 3.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the 14-day EMCO was aimed at controlling public movement in the two villages and to facilitate Covid-19 screenings by the Health Ministry.

“It will involve 8,062 villagers…they have also been instructed to observe home surveillance order and to wear the surveillance wristband,” he told a press conference on the latest development of the recovery movement control order here today.

Ismail Sabri said movement in and out of the two villages will not be allowed, except for emergency cases, and the villagers were also not allowed to work during the EMCO period.

All social and recreational activities, as well as barter trade, are also not allowed,” he said.
