The Health director-general Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah said that a proposal would be discussed with the National Security Council (MKN) as soon as possible.
“We tighten and allow for the economic sector only,” he said during a media conference and further added that all forms of large gatherings should be reduced to break the chain of COVID-19 infections.

The conditional movement control order (CMCO) in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Selangor has been enforced for 14 days starting from 14 October to 27 October, while for Sabah the dates run from 12 October to 26 October.
Meanwhile, DG Hisham said that the SOPs stipulated for prisons needed to be reviewed to ensure infections there could be reduced, and that the Prisons Department will work closely with MOH to streamline the SOP.
Stay safe, everyone, and please ensure that you follow the SOPs implemented by the government! Don’t forget to wear your face mask and maintain physical distancing.
Let’s flatten the curve, again, guys!
