Ismail Sabri: Laws for conditional MCO gazetted, supersede previous ones

PUTRAJAYA: The public need not worry about having a run in with the law as changes have been made to the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act (Act 342) which was gazetted on Monday (May 4), says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister said this among others, allowed for four people to be in a car with no more limit to the radius which they can travel.

Ismail Sabri explained that when the movement control order is extended, it will be gazetted and the previous one will be null and void.

“For the conditional MCO, we have made changes as some of the regulations have been relaxed. This has been gazetted.

“Therefore, rules applied throughout the phase four of the MCO are now null and void and are replaced with this new one,” he said.

He said the enforcement period for the conditional MCO is similar to phase four of MCO, which is from April 28 to May 12.

“For instance, authorities cannot take action if a car has four passengers because this regulation has been gazetted.

“I hope there is no confusion. This regulation is applicable nationwide, including in states and districts,” he said.
