The existing conditional movement control order (CMCO) enforced nationwide will be extended to June 9, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced today.
In his special address on the 7th day of the CMCO, Muhyiddin said despite achieving several positive results throughout the movement control order (MCO) imposed since March 18, measures must be taken to continue the fight against the pandemic.
“Therefore on the advice of the Health Ministry, the ongoing CMCO scheduled to expire on May 12 will be extended to June 9 for a period of four weeks. This also means that all existing standard operating procedures (SOP) will be maintained until June 9,” he said.
Malaysia today entered the 54th day of the movement control order that was imposed to break the chain of infection of the Covid-19 virus in the country.
The MCO, which has now entered its fifth phase, was originally scheduled to expire on May 12.
Up to 12pm yesterday, Malaysia recorded 54 new Covid-19 infections with 1,552 active cases and a total of 4,929 patients recovered.
As of today, a total of 108 fatalities related to Covid-19 have been recorded.
