KUALA LUMPUR: The Masjid India area has been placed under an enhanced movement control order (MCO) except for the Dang Wang district police headquarters and DBKL homeless monitoring centre as more than 40 people have tested positive for Covid-19.

Premises along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Lebuh Ampang, Jalan Tun Perak, Jalan Dang Wangi and Jalan Munshi Abdullah, Jalan Ampang and Jalan Melaka will be closed as soon as the enhanced MCO is in effect.

Aside from several hotels, Semua House, Mydin, Kompleks Campbell, Wisma Kosas and Wisma Yakin fall within the affected area.

The area affected has a radius of about 1km and has more than 10,000 people, including 6,000 at the Selangor Mansion and Malayan Mansion flats and 3,200 people at Menara City One.

Going in and out of the area is prohibited once the enhanced MCO is imposed on Masjid India.

A check by The Star revealed that security forces have been seen putting up barbed wire fences at passageways in the area since Monday (April 13) night.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced the enhanced MCO on the area on Tuesday (April 14) until April 28.

"We hope the residents and premise owners give their full cooperation to the authorities," he said during the press conference on Tuesday.
