EMCO is responsible for two areas in Sarawak and one in Pahang

Following an increase in Covid-19 cases in Sarawak and Pahang, two villages in Sarawak and one locality in Pahang will be put under an enhanced movement control order (EMCO) starting tomorrow.

Kg Batu Gong and Kg Chupak in Siburan, Sarawak, will be put under an EMCO, according to senior minister for security Ismail Sabri Yaakob, after a total of 107 positive cases were discovered there.

Meanwhile, after 178 tests in the field, 63 cases were discovered in Taman Guru on Jalan Gambang in Kuantan.

According to Ismail, the EMCO’s implementation in the three areas, which will end on April 9, will allow the health ministry to perform targeted screening on residents. It will also allow authorities to monitor movement inside communities to prevent the virus from spreading.
