CORDONED off areas under the enhanced movement control order (MCO) has made it difficult for people to move around but many have complied with the authorities in the fight against Covid-19.

People living around Pasar Borong Kuala Lumpur, Pasar Besar Jalan Othman in Petaling Jaya Old Town and now Pudu area in Kuala Lumpur have learnt to adapt.

Despite the barbed wires and soldiers manning the areas, various non-governmental organisations are allowed to deliver basic necessities and provide help to the residents.

Keeping these areas separate also allows the authorities to step up Covid-19 screening efforts in a bid to contain the spread of the virus.
