"We should give our full cooperation to the authorities and stay home. Let's break the chain of infections and heed the calls made by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Prime Minister to abide by the MCO," he said after distributing food to frontliners and police personnel on Saturday (March 21).

Ahmad Zahid said he was confident that the cooperation between the police and the Armed Forces from Sunday (March 22) would yield positive results.

"Take what happened in another countries, where people did not follow instructions of authorities, as a lesson. The number of infected cases and deaths spiked.

"It is the responsibility of all Malaysians to abide by the MCO, so let's do our part," he said.
