KUALA LUMPUR, May 10 (Bernama) — The Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) has been extended until June 9, which means interstate travel for Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration is not allowed, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today.
The prime minister said the four-week extension was made on the advice of the Health Ministry (MOH) and the National Security Council (NSC) to curb the spread of COVID-19.
“Our efforts (in fighting COVID-19) have yet to achieve full success. Measures are still needed to fight this pandemic. I also find that the public generally wants the government to continue taking the appropriate measures to fight this pandemic,” he said in a special address aired over national television.
The government had earlier implemented the CMCO from May 4 to 12 to allow almost all economic and social sectors to reopen in a controlled and orderly manner.
Muhyiddin said the extension means that all regulations and standard operating procedures (SOPs) implemented under the current CMCO will remain in force until June 9.
