KUALA LUMPUR: The Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) enforced in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya will now be extended for another two weeks.
Initially scheduled to end tomorrow, Senior Defense Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced the extension today based on recommendation by the Health Ministry.
The second phase of the CMCO will end Nov 9.
Risk assessment carried out by the Health Ministry found there were still areas within the three at risk of the spread of Covid-19, leading to the government agreeing to extend the order.
"Taking that into consideration, the government will be taking measures for another 14 days, while the SOP remains," he said.
