Ismail Sabri: MCO extended until Feb 4 in six states and Federal Territories

PUTRAJAYA: The movement control order enforced in Penang, Selangor, Johor, Sabah, Melaka, Kelantan, Putrajaya, Kuala Lumpur and Labuan, has been extended until Feb 4.

Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said this was due to a spike in positive cases over the past 14 days between Jan 7 and 20.

He said that most districts in these states were also red zones.

"Following the recommendation by the Health Ministry, the National Security Council special meeting has agreed to extend the MCO enforced in these states until Feb 4," he announced on Thursday (Jan 21).

These states have been placed under MCO since Jan 13.
