Two-week lockdown for two areas
PETALING JAYA: The government yesterday announced an Enhanced Movement Control Order (MCO) in two areas in Simpang Renggam after recording 61 positive cases of Covid-19 there, out of 83 in Kluang.
The Enhanced MCO in Kampung Dato' Ibrahim Majid and Bandar Baharu Dato' Ibrahim Majid will involve 3,570 local residents from 650 families, effective midnight today until April 9.
“This is to prevent Covid-19 infection from spreading out from the areas. This move will allow house-tohouse case monitoring activities to be implemented in the period of 14 days,” Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said in a statement.
During the order, all local and visitors in the areas are subject to house curfew, while non-locals are not allowed in with all entry points blocked.
