NSC: Message claiming extension of conditional MCO is fake news

PETALING JAYA: A notice claiming that the conditional movement control order in Selangor, Sabah, Labuan, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Perak, Terengganu and Penang will be extended until January is fake news, says the National Security Council.

The Council said in a tweet on Friday (Dec 4) that the message being spread is fake news.

"This is fake news. Do not spread misleading news. Not sure, don't share," it said.

The message claimed that the conditional MCO in the eight states will be extended from Dec 6 to Jan 3.

The conditional MCO is expected to end on Dec 6, and there has been no official announcement to whether it will be extended to a later date.
