PETALING JAYA: Policemen and soldiers can be seen on the streets here, jointly enforcing the movement control order (MCO) to ensure the public stays at home to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Around the Klang Valley, army and police personnel were seen conducting roadblocks to advise those on the roads not to venture out unnecessarily.

Donning face masks and gloves, they were seen speaking to the public in their vehicles at roadblocks set up on main roads such as Jalan Gasing, Hartamas, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Pantai Dalam and Taman Sri Sentosa.

Klang Valley currently has the highest number of Covid-19 cases in the country.

The army was deployed nationwide on Sunday (March 21) to assist the police to ensure that the public stays at home during the MCO period.

In Ampang, Armed Forces Chief Jeneral Tan Sri Datuk Affendi Buang was seen with his men at a roadblock leading to Jalan Ampang.
