/ Lifted

It’s Day 38 of the Movement Control Order and it was just announced yesterday that the MCO is going to be extended until the 12th of May. Although this may frustrate you, we have to remember that this move is necessary for us to battle the Covid-19 pandemic. However, it seems like even when the MCO is lifted, life may not return to normal immediately and we would have to get used to certain restrictions for quite some time.

“We need to tighten border control, especially now, with the increasing number of cases in over 180 countries. Lifting the MCO does not mean we will lift border controls; in fact, we need to strengthen it further.” 

Currently, Malaysia has banned its citizens from leaving the country and only allowing those overseas to return home who will undergo a 14-day quarantine at designated quarantine centres.Well, looks like we’re going to postpone all our travel plans for now. However, if there’s one thing we’ve all learnt from this pandemic is that Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah knows what’s best that should be done!
