Today, 4th May, is Day 1 of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), where opening of the economy means that thousands of Malaysians leave their homes after 47 days of staying at home.

As businesses open their doors, images of crowds and long queues are popping up on social media.

Day 1 of the CMCO looks to be a mixed bag as Malaysians adjust to the new normal but it’s vital that everyone adheres to social distancing to break the transmission of Covid-19.
