Tongkang Pecah in Batu Pahat put under CMCO

KUALA LUMPUR: Tongkang Pecah in Batu Pahat, Johor, has been placed under a conditional movement control order (MCO), says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (pic).

The Senior Minister (Security) said the conditional MCO will be imposed there from Nov 29 until Dec 13.

"Screenings were conducted on 672 individuals and 65 of them were found to be Covid-19 positive.

"At the same time, we are still waiting for the results of 302 screening samples.

"Based on the risk assessment conducted by the Health Ministry and their advice, the special National Security Council (NSC) meeting has decided to place the area under a conditional MCO," he said in his daily briefing on Friday (Nov 27).

The conditional MCO will involve 16,300 residents in Bandar Putera Indah, Lorong 7-Lorong 10, Batu 7 and Kampung Mohd Nor, he added.

"Placing the area under a conditional MCO will enable targeted screenings. It will also limit the movements of residents.

"The standard operating procedure (SOP) is similar for other areas that have been placed under a conditional MCO. For more information on the SOP, the people should check the NSC website," Ismail said.
