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.

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.

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.
