(PUTRAJAYA, Jun 27) Our Minister of Defence Ismail Sabri has just announced the extension of the MCO 3.0 Phase 1 but with no indication of an end date.
Initially slated to end on June 14, the total lockdown had been extended once to Jun 28 due to the high number of daily Covid-19 cases. It is now confirmed that Malaysia will remain in total lockdown as daily cases still hover around 5,000 mark.
SOPs for Phase 1 extension will remain as previously announced. However, the government allows F&B outlets to operate from 6am till 10pm, effective Jun 28.
Furthermore, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin mentioned earlier today that from now on, the government will use the term “Phases” in announcements instead of “MCO”.
More to come…
