But right now, we must not take this MCO lightly. There are lives at risk, our frontliners are working tirelessly to take care of those who are sick, our police and soldiers are manning roadblocks under the scorching sun just to make sure that everyone is safe - and all we had to do is stay at home! 

As reported by Harian Metro, Chief of Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said the MCO will most likely be extended until June if Malaysians are stubborn and refuse to stay at home, which in turn could cause more cases of COVID-19 outbreaks. 

“I am warning the public again, that the enforcement of the MCO will not be loosened. Arrests will be intensified against those who violate the order,” said the PDRM Chief.

Getting arrested just because you can’t stay at home is not worth it, guys! 

The MCO is now in its third phase until 28 April after Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that the necessary measures had to be taken in order to break the chain of infection and for the safety of the rakyat. 

PDRM will be working together with the Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) to set up even more roadblocks and restrictions around the borders of the country to tighten enforcement of the MCO. 

Please, be mindful of others. We’re all in this together!
