7 Villages in Hulu Langat are on Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) from 30 March until 13 April 2020!


Today, the second enhanced movement control order (EMCO) was implemented in 7 villages in Hulu Langat by the government after it was imposed on two villages in Simpang Renggam, Johor last week. This is due to 71 positive cases identified among 274 residents of a tahfiz school

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yakob mentioned the EMCO is effective from today until 13 April 2020 and involves 3,918 residents from 700 houses in the areas of Batu 21 to Batu 24 in Sungai Lui. During the lockdown, all entry points are blocked to ensure no visitors are allowed in while all locals and visitors in the areas are on a house curfew with no business activities running. All essential food items will be distributed by the Social Welfare Department and also a medical base will be set up there.

There are currently 2,470 positive cases of COVID-19 in Malaysia with 35 deaths on record and 388 recovered from the infection. While Selangor, Kepong, and Klang are now officially red zones, Health Director-General Datuk Noor Hisham Abdullah has yet to announce the possibility of EMCO in more areas in these states.

With that said, we urge all Malaysians to please stay at home and always keep your hygiene well taken care of. If you really need to go to the grocery store, do go alone, not in pairs or with families. Do stay tuned for more local news updates on TechNave.com!
