The Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) for Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Sabah has been extended till 14 January 2021.
It has also been extended in Seremban, Johor Bahru, Batu Pahat, and in Mukim 12 (Barat Daya) and Mukim 13 (Timur Laut) Penang.
Senior Minister (Defence) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced today at a press conference that the decision to extend the CMCO is due to the still-high number of Covid-19 cases.
MOH informs that a total of 29,272 Covid-19 cumulative cases were recorded in the last two weeks (14-27 December) in Selangor. Within these two weeks, Selangor recorded 8,194 new cases and all 9 districts are now red zones.
Meanwhile in Kuala Lumpur, MOH notes there is still a sharp increase in cases and formation of new Covid-19 clusters. Kuala Lumpur records a total of 12,494 cumulative cases as of 27 December.
He notes that Malaysia will be living with the threat for a while.
While every country has their own strategy in dealing with Covid-19, the reality is that human lives will continue to face this threat. Every country pretty much agrees that we will live with Covid-19 like previous epidemic outbreaks like dengue.Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob
