Ministry: It’s physical distancing now

KUALA LUMPUR: The Health Ministry has changed the term social distancing used in the Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP) to physical distancing.

The use of the new term refers to the public observing a 1m distance from each other in the new normal.

“The term social distancing has now been replaced by physical distancing, ” the ministry said via Twitter.

In addition, the public must also comply with the conditions set under the recovery movement control order (RMCO).

Those in the high-risk category such as children, infants, the elderly and the disabled need to be protected and individuals who feel unwell and show symptoms (of Covid-19) must urgently undergo a health examination. — Bernama
