PUTRAJAYA: The conditional movement control order (MCO) will be imposed in Kelantan for two weeks from Saturday (Nov 21) until Dec 6 due to the hike in Covid-19 cases, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The Senior Minister also said the conditional MCO will end in Kedah, Melaka, Terengganu and Johor on Saturday.
However the districts in Kulim in Kedah as well as Mersing and Kota Tinggi in Johor will remain under conditional MCO.
The conditional MCO was earlier announced to end in the four states on Dec 6.
“This is because there are still active cases reported in the districts. The health authorities will monitor the situation and will make its recommendations should the situation in these areas improve,” he said on Friday (Nov 20).
Ismail Sabri said Kedah reported only 85 active cases as of Nov 18, of which Kulim alone had 23 cases.
In Johor, while the Covid-19 situation is under control in other districts, Kota Tinggi and Mersing recorded 36 and eight cases respectively as of Nov 16.
Ismail Sabri said while 230 positive cases were reported in Terengganu since Nov 4, as of Tuesday (Nov 17), there were only 19 active cases with no sporadic cases reported over the past 14 days.
As of Nov 18, there were only 48 positive cases recorded in Melaka and health authorities are of the opinion that the Covid-19 situation in the state is under control.
