Malaysian Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has officially announced today that Malaysia will be going into total lockdown starting from June 1 till June 14
. “This decision was made after taking into account the current situation of the Covid-19 outbreak in Malaysia with daily cases surpassing 8,000 and over 70,000 active cases,” he shared in a statement.
This upcoming lockdown will be similar to the first Movement Control Order (MCO) that was implemented last year with no social and economic sectors - except for essential services - allowed to operate during the 2-week lockdown. Along with the announcement, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has shared that a list of essential economic and service sector will be announced by the Malaysian National Security Council (Majlis Keselamatan Negara Malaysia) soon.
As we continue to pull through the pandemic in Malaysia, we hope that you continue to do your part and stay safe wherever you are. For other updates, check out our articles below:
