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.
