(PUTRAJAYA, MAY 21) Earlier in the evening, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin released a press statement to address the latest MCO 3.0 status.
Due to the high number of daily confirmed COVID-19 cases, the National Security Council (NSC) held a meeting today chaired by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to discuss the possibility of imposing a full-scale MCO to curb the country’s raging Covid-19 outbreak.
The Prime Minister asserted that stricter measures will be introduced but did not confirm as to whether a total lockdown similar to the first MCO last year will be implemented.
Further details and new SOPs will be announced by Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob in a press conference tomorrow.
