Should businesses operate during the Full Movement Control Order (FMCO)? Malaysians have been asking this question since the start of the lockdown which is meant to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Although most Malaysians are staying indoors nowadays, industries which are deemed by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) as “essential” are allowed to operate.
There have been outcries from the public that workplaces are the key contributors to clusters and we’ve decided to check on the numbers to see if the claim is true.
27 new Covid-19 clusters have been detected in Malaysia by the Health Ministry on 29 June, which contributes to 1,901 cases out of 6,437.
Currently there are 887 active clusters based on the stats by MOH.

- 13 community
- 12 workplace

Meanwhile, here’s the breakdown of the clusters based on their category in the past week:
- 28 June – 22 clusters (16 workplace, 6 community)
- 27 June – 17 clusters (9 workplace, 6 community, 1 detention centre, 1 high risk group)
- 26 June – 14 clusters (9 workplace, 2 detention centre, 2 community, 1 high risk group)
- 25 June – 21 clusters (18 workplace, 2 community, 1 detention centre)
- 24 June – 30 clusters (20 workplace, 9 community, 1 high risk group)
- 23 June – 24 clusters (15 workplace, 7 community, 1 high risk group, 1 detention centre)
In the past week, the data has shown that 99 workplace clusters have been recorded compared to 56 non-workplace clusters.
Although the number for non-workplace clusters were slightly higher on 29 June based on the graph, clusters on the other six days largely originated from workplaces (23 June to 28 June).
