Ismail Sabri: Three areas in Kudat to be placed under EMCO from Oct 30

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 28): Kampung Pengaraban, Kampung Tanjung Kapor and Kampung Landung Ayang in the Kudat district of Sabah will be placed under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) from Oct 30 to Nov 12, said Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said the EMCO, which will affect 2,393 homes and 13,884 people, was due to a spike in positive Covid-19 cases in the three areas.

“The EMCO standard operating procedure (SOP) is the same as the one announced earlier. However, sundry shops will be allowed to operate from 6 am to 6 pm so that the residents can purchase essential items,” he said at a press conference on the latest development of the Recovery MCO today.

Meanwhile, Ismail Sabri said the Conditional MCO in Labuan would be extended for another 14 days from Oct 31 to Nov 13 as there was still an increase in COVID-19 cases.  

“Previously, the CMCO in Labuan was from Oct 17 to Oct 30. The Ministry of Health (MOH) is still carrying out targeted screening of residents in Labuan and, so far, there is still a rise in positive cases,” he said.
