Fake news: Kids not allowed to enter shopping malls?


KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 23): The viral news that has gone viral on social media regarding children aged below 12-year old are not allowed to enter shopping malls and eateries is fake, according to the Quick Response Team of Multimedia and Communications Ministry (KKMM).

In a media statement today, KKMM said the Kuantan district police headquarters and its Covid-19 DCC Hotline denied releasing any statement or poster regarding the enforcement of such a standard operating procedure (SOP) under the conditional movement control order (CMCO).

“The Kuantan police clarified that children under 12 years of age are not encouraged, but still allowed to visit shopping malls or eateries but they must comply with the CMCO SOP issued by the National Security Council (MKN) on Feb 19,” said the statement.
