SHAH ALAM, Jan 13 — The people are urged to take the enforcement of the movement control order (MCO) for the second time seriously in order to combat the Covid-19 infection.
Selangor state executive councillor Borhan Aman Shah said the implementation of the MCO was much needed and said he hopes to see the rate of Covid-19 infection in the country to drop within the next two weeks.
“As we know, Selangor has recorded the top number of cases. The public should take the matter seriously and abide by the standard operation procedure (SOP) to ensure that the number of infections drops,” he told SelangorKini.
Borhan had also advised the people to correctly put on the face masks and discard it properly. He also reminded that the face masks should not be reused many times as it could cause the virus to spread easily.
Selangor along with the Federal Territories (Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Labuan) and five other states were enforced under the MCO since yesterday (January 13) until January 26.
The move announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to implement the MCO in phases is part of the Federal government’s efforts to contain the novel coronavirus outbreak in the country.
On Tuesday, Malaysia logged a new record high in daily infections at 3,309 cases.
