PETALING JAYA: The enhanced movement control order at Bandar Muadzam Shah in Pahang will end ahead of schedule, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

"The Health Ministry had conducted 886 Covid-19 tests in the locality and 36 positive cases were recorded. However, the Ministry confirms that the infection rate there is controlled, with the last positive case recorded on Feb 4, with no more samples pending results," the Defence Minister said in a statement Friday (Feb 19).

As such, the enhanced MCO there will end on Satruday (Feb 20), two days ahead of schedule.

On current enforcement statistics, he said that 404 people were issued compounds on Thursday (Feb 18), with 39 people remanded.

Of that, 136 people were found to have not practised physical distancing measures.

Under Ops Benteng, enforcement agencies arrested 39 illegal immigrants, while also seizing one boat and two land vehicles.
