On Day 21 of the Movement Control Order (MCO), two more buildings in Kuala Lumpur are effectively locked down under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO).

Beginning 7th April, The Edge reported that Selangor Mansion and Malaya Mansion at Jalan Masjid India are sealed off from outsiders and residents are not allowed to leave until all 6,000 are screened.

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob stated that the decision was made after the Health Ministry confirmed 15 positive Covid-19 cases detected at both buildings.

Under the EMCO, all entry and exit points are sealed and all commercial activities are shut down except for shops selling essential items.

For residents in the buildings, food can be delivered at designated areas.

To enforce the EMCO, the police, army, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) officers and The People’s Volunteer Corps (RELA) personnel are stationed at the site. Images shared online also show that the buildings have been cordoned off with barbed wires.
