KUALA LUMPUR: The government has decided to extend the enhanced movement control order (MCO) at the Tawau Prison and Taman Ehsan Tawau Prison Quarters, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The Defence Minister said the enhanced MCO was earlier declared from Sept 11 to Sept 25.
"Within this time, new Covid-19 cases have been in the two-digit range everyday.
"On Sept 23, 107 new cases were recorded," he said in a statement Sunday (Sept 27).
He said taking into consideration the risk assessment on the spread of the pandemic, the government had agreed to extend the enhanced MCO there for another 14 days.
"It will begin from Sept 26 to Oct 9," he said.
