Four districts in Sabah – Lahad Datu, Tawau, Kunak and Semporna – will be placed under administrative targeted enhanced movement control order (TEMCO) from midnight until Oct 12.

Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the administrative TEMCO, covering 962,661 residents, would be implemented to curb the transmission of Covid-19 infections in the districts and to enable targeted case tracking activities over the next 14 days.

“The health ministry has confirmed that there were 1,195 positive cases of Covid-19 infections in Lahad Datu, Tawau, Kunak and Semporna from Sept 1 to 27, with Lahad Datu recording 241 cases, Tawau 634, Kunak 65 and Semporna 255.

“Taking into account the number of cases, the government, on the advice of the health minister, has decided to implement an administrative TEMCO in these areas,” he said in a statement today.

During the administrative TEMCO, residents will be prohibited from leaving these areas while non-residents and visitors will not be allowed to enter.

All business activities will be halted except for essential goods and services in the four districts, while medical bases will be opened in the TEMCO areas.

Ismail said all entry points to and from the TEMCO areas would be closed.

To ensure full compliance, the police, armed forces, Civil Defence Force, Rela, local authorities and authorised personnel will control all areas involved.

“For the implementation of this order, all residents are asked to remain calm and give full cooperation to the staff from the ministry and comply with all directives issued by the authorities,” he said.

Residents who need help or have questions can contact the district police headquarters at the given numbers: Lahad Datu (089-881255), Tawau (089-752222), Kunak (089-851222) and Semporna (089-782020).
