KUALA LUMPUR – The government will be implementing the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), which would be the third approach as a cautious preventive measure in reopening the economic sector nationwide.
Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said, the majority portion of the economic and social activities will be allowed, with the exception of those involving mass assembly and those that may expose the public to the risk of Covid-19 infection.
He said, the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) will also be implemented on areas recording high Covid-19 positive cases.
“I know that after almost two months going through MCO, many of you would like to return to work.
“For the traders, you would like to reopen your businesses. For the industry operators, you would like to ensure that your businesses can operate again,” he said in a special address today.
Muhyiddin said, the measure is important as being in an MCO for too long would affect the people’s income and give a bad impact to their financial status.
The country too, would be affected due to the halt of economic activities.
“Taxes cannot be collected, the industry cannot grow, the economic growth will be stunted and we want to avoid businesses from shutting down and the people lose their jobs,” he added. -MalaysiaGazette
