Ismail Sabri: Announcement on conditional MCO extension will be made at least a day before it ends

KUALA LUMPUR: People in Selangor and the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan will have to wait at least one day before the conditional movement control order (MCO) ends to know if it will be extended.

Asked if the conditional MCO in these areas will be extended, Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the Health Ministry would study the situation in those areas before deciding.

"Once they have conducted their assessment, the ministry will give their recommendation to the National Security Council (NSC) special meeting and a decision will be made," he said during his daily briefing on Saturday (Oct 24)

Asking the people in those areas to be patient, he said any announcement would be made a day before the conditional MCO is scheduled to end.

"Wait for the announcement," said Ismail Sabri.

Ismail Sabri had announced earlier this month that the conditional MCO would be implemented in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya from Oct 14-27 while Labuan was placed under the same order from Oct 17-30.
