KUALA LUMPUR – The government had extended the Movement Control Order (MCO) for another 14 days to 14 April 2020.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said, the enforcement period of the MCO will be updated from time to time.

However, he reminded Malaysians to not panic and not keep too much of food stocks.

“Those of you in the villages do not need to rush back to Kuala Lumpur this weekend.

“Stay there and don’t go anywhere.

“Children who need to go back to their dorms do not need to do that yet. Wait. The offices that are closed do not need to be reopened yet.

“If there are important matters that you need to manage for the next three weeks, start planning on how you would manage them,” he said in a special address broadcasted live on the national television today. -MalaysiaGazette
