KUALA LUMPUR, July 20– Worried about the return to double digits in new COVID-19 cases lately, Tan Sri Muhyddin Yassin today hinted on the hardship the people and the country would have to endure if a lockdown is reimposed in the event of a surge in infections.

The prime minister said the people should not let their guard down as 13 new clusters had been detected during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) period, at a time when their lives were getting back to almost normal.

“I am sure all of you do not want the government to reimpose a lockdown that is necessitated by a surge in COVID-19 cases. I pray and hope that we would not reach that stage,” he said in a special address on developments on the RMCO which was telecast live on national television today.
