KOTA KINABALU: Sabah will not immediately adopt the new ruling by the Federal government allowing two people from a household to go out together during the movement control order (MCO), says Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal (pic).

The Chief Minister said the Sabah Covid-19 Command Centre would need to look into the relaxed ruling announced under phase four of the MCO which took effect on Wednesday (April 29).

“We will need to study its impact first, ” he told reporters after meeting China’s expert consultant team on Covid-19, who were in his office to share their experiences in handling the Covid-19 pandemic.

The team was in Sabah in the final leg of their week-long visit to Malaysia.

Shafie said for now, two people in a car would only be allowed for specific purposes.

Currently, the practice of allowing a second person in a car is only allowed for medical reasons and other valid reasons.
