PUTRAJAYA: The coming two weeks is crucial as sacrificing one’s freedom, being in isolation and forgoing social activities can help save lives, says Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said the Covid-19 is now in the community and the people must not be too comfortable until they neglect all preventive measures such as using face masks, ensuring social distancing and washing hands frequently.

“I call upon community leaders to look after and protect their communities from Covid-19.

“You are all frontliners in your community in the fight against the virus. Work together with district health offices, community health clinics and district councils to educate the community so that they know how best to prevent infection, ” he said in a special address on Monday (Jan 11).

The Prime Minister has announced the implementation of a movement control order (MCO) for 14 days beginning midnight Wednesday (Jan 13).

The MCO will be enforced in namely Penang, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Labuan in the Federal Territories, Melaka, Johor and Sabah.

The conditional MCO will be enforced in Pahang, Perak, Negri Sembilan, Kedah, Terengganu and Kelantan.
