KUANTAN: Pahang is maintaining the status quo on the movement control order (MCO) for now.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail (pic) said although the state government supported the Prime Minister's announcement on the conditional MCO, the details still had to be worked out specifically for Pahang.

"The Pahang government has to study and fine-tune it to match the current state of the Covid-19 outbreak in Pahang.

"This will be discussed further in the state security working committee's weekly meeting on Friday, May 8," he said in a statement on Sunday (May 3).

Wan Rosdy said until a decision was made at the meeting, all regulations made on the MCO would remain.

"As we all know, the state of Pahang is now facing the emergence of a new cluster. Therefore, special attention and priority must be given to addressing it.

"As such, the Pahang government is refining the conditional MCO's implementation measures so that opening up any sector will not cause a new outbreak," he said.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced on Friday (May 1) that the conditional MCO would start from May 4 and certain business sectors would be allowed to operate from May 4.
