Certain areas in the state of Selangor could be placed under a full lockdown or an Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
An EMCO basically means that all residents in the designated zones are not allowed to leave their homes entirely, and businesses would be ordered to close.
According to the Director-General of Health Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, Selangor currently has the highest distribution of infections in the country.
The DG said that the authorities have identified â€œone or twoâ€ areas in the state that could be placed under a full lockdown as a means to curb the spread of the viral plague.
As of the moment, 7 villages in Hulu Langat, Selangor and 2 kampungs in Simpang Renggam, Johor have already been placed under the EMCO following escalating Covid-19 cases in the areas.
Separately, Cheras in Kuala Lumpur and Jerantut in Pahang are now classified as â€œorangeâ€ zones after ongoing spikes in infections.
Previously, Kepong and Klang were designated as Covid-19 red zones after recording among the highest cases of infections in the country.
