PETALING JAYA: Three areas in Terengganu and an area in Sabah will be placed under the enhanced movement control order from April 7 to 20, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (pic).

The Senior Minister (Security) said the government has decided to enforce the EMCO in Kampung Belaoh, Kampung PPRT Belaoh Baru and in Kampung Keruak, Mukim Hulu Besut in Terengganu.

He said this was after the Health Ministry had confirmed that there have been a spate of Covid-19 cases among the residents there, adding that the infectivity rate was also high.

As of April 6, he noted that the Health Ministry had conducted screenings on 58 individuals in the locality, of which six have tested positive for the virus.

The Defence Minister also said that Kampung Murni C, Nabawan, Sabah, will also be placed under EMCO.

"The Health Ministry confirmed that there has been a rapid increase of cases in this locality with a high infectivity rate among the community," he said in a statement on Tuesday (April 6).

In this area to date, Ismail Sabri said the Health Ministry has conducted screenings on 17 individuals, of which six tested positive for the virus.
