KUALA LUMPUR – The Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) do not need to be implemented on the whole Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor despite the spike of Covid-19 positive cases.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that the implementation is not needed as it would be done in a targeted manner.
“There is no plan to shut down the whole Kuala Lumpur or Selangor yet as we can do this in a targeted manner, based on locality,” he said during a news conference at the Ministry of Defence today.
Ismail Sabri said, the Ministry of Health (MOH) will identify the areas which require EMCO based on the number of Covid-19 positive cases.
“We will not impose EMCO on the whole place. Not the whole of Kuala Lumpur but relevant areas.
“If it is implemented in Damansara, although we do not lockdown, however, the construction site is shut down and everyone working there is screened and we will focus like how we do it on that area,” he said.
Last Sunday, the MOH announced that Kuala Lumpur had recorded the highest Covid-19 cases with 469 cases. 460 cases were from the Damanlela Construction Site.
Meanwhile, Ismail said that the government would not implement EMCO on the Damanlela Construction Site Cluster as the MOH had acted on the matter. –MalaysiaGazette
