The entire country except for Sarawak will come under movement control order (MCO) beginning Jan 22, Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced today.

The MCO in Kedah, Perak, Pahang, Terengganu, Perlis and Negeri Sembilan will continue for two weeks until Feb 4.

Speaking at a press conference on the MCO, Ismail said the decision was made in light of the increasing number of Covid-19 infections across the states.

“From risk assessments and on the advice of the health ministry, the government agreed that the MCO should be enforced in these states to curb the spread of Covid-19,” he said.

The MCO was initially implemented in six states: Penang, Selangor, the federal territories (Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan), Melaka, Johor and Sabah.

The MCO in these states will continue until Jan 26.

Pahang, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah, Terengganu and Kelantan were placed under conditional MCO while Perlis and Sarawak were put under recovery MCO.

Kelantan came under MCO on Jan 16. The movement restrictions in the state are expected to end on Jan 26.
