Klang Valley folk urged to get serious about CMCO


KUALA LUMPUR: Residents in Klang Valley have been urged to comply with the conditional movement control order (MCO).

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah (pic) said with the addition of 76 cases on Saturday, the total number of Covid-19 cases in Selangor was now at 3,880.

“The increase in local transmissions in Selangor started on Oct 2, and has increased consistently, ” he said, adding that if one were to refer to the case records in Selangor for the third wave, the first cluster identified was the Jalan Apas cluster on Sept 28, involving a family that had returned from Sabah.

He also said that 196 cases in Selangor have a history of travel to Sabah, adding that subsequently, nine clusters were identified involving these individuals.

“That said, local transmissions began occurring leading to cases and 35 active clusters, ” he said.

“Because of this the government also decided to implement the conditional MCO in Selangor, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur.

“It also decided that workers at management level in public and industrial sectors in these areas should work from home effective Oct 22.

“The main reason for this is so that more people stay home, and reduce movements in the community, which can curb the transmission of the virus, ” he said, adding that whether this course of action succeeded or not would depend on the compliance and cooperation of everyone.
