SHAH ALAM, Nov 7 — The conditional movement control order (CMCO) in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya is extended until December 6 in tandem with the implementation of the CMCO in other states in the peninsula.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the CMCO will be enforced in the peninsula for four weeks starting November 9 until December 6 except for the states of Perlis, Pahang and Kelantan.
“In a special meeting today, updates from the Health Ministry (KKM) showed there is a rise of Covid-19 cases and infectivity rate in these states.
“On advice from the Health Ministry (MOH) it is agreed that the CMCO is implemented throughout the peninsular except for Pahang, Perlis and Kelantan starting from November 9 to December 6.
“This implementation is to enable MOH to conduct targeted screenings and curb movement in the community to stop the spread of Covid-19 in these states,” said Ismail Sabri at a press conference today.
Ismail Sabri added that the previously implemented standard operating procedures (SOP) are applicable during the extension period.
The CMCO in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya was scheduled to end on November 9 after a 14-day extension from October 27.
The earlier CMCO in the Klang Valley started on October 14 till October 27, which was enforced following the surge in Covid-19 cases.
