He said that although the administrative control has been lifted, police and MoH officials will continue to monitor the area for new Covid-19 cases.
Prior to the control being lifted, Bernama visited the area yesterday to see how the residents were coping and found the area around Jalan Pudu to be peaceful and calm. Residents there were also seen wearing face masks and maintaining social distance.
It also appeared to be quite obvious that the control was going to end soon as the tents set up by authorities was seen being dismantled and removed.
After a sudden spike of Covid-19 cases in the locale, areas around Jalan Pudu was put under administrative control under the movement control order (MCO). Unlike the enhanced MCO (EMCO), residents of Jalan Pudu were still allowed to move around and get food.
However, all the residents there were required to get themselves screened by the Health Ministry so that infected individuals could be isolated and treated.
