Three localities in Pahang, one in Sabah under EMCO from Monday (Sept 20)

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Four localities - three in Pahang and one in Sabah - will be placed under the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) from Monday (Sept 20) until Oct 3, according to the National Security Council (NSC).

NSC’s national security director-general Datuk Rodzi Md Saad said the affected localities in Pahang were Kampung Sungai Kabuk, Kampung Sungai Tiang dan Kampung Sungai Chohong in Lembah Bertam, Cameron Highlands, while in Sabah, the area involved was Kampung Tamu Darat, Kota Belud.

He said the decision to enforce the EMCO was made after the Health Ministry’s presentation on risk assessment as well as Covid-19 infection trends.

"The standard operating procedure for all EMCO areas is the same as announced previously," he said in a statement posted on Facebook on Saturday (Sept 18).

Meanwhile Rodzi said the EMCO imposed on the Police Training Centre in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and two zones in Mukim Kuala Kedah, Kota Setar, Kedah will end on Sunday (Sept 19) as scheduled.

The EMCO in Tapah Prison (including staff quarters) will also end on Sunday, he added. - Bernama
