#TTFCovid19: The Government of Malaysia (GoM) has officially extended the country’s movement curbs by another two weeks as it continues a joint effort involving police and military to reduce infections caused by the Coronavirus.

In a special live telecast on national television and social media, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the Movement Control Order (MCO) would be extended from the 15th to the 28th of April 2020, making it the second extension since the MCO was first brought into effect on the 18th of March 2020.

Muhyiddin also said Muslims needed to brace for a change in lifestyle as social distancing measures are likely to stay at least for the next few months.

In his address, the Prime Minister stressed that Muslims cannot visit Ramadan bazaars or even the tarawih prayers throughout the fasting month.


PETALING JAYA: The Government of Malaysia (GoM) has officially extended the country’s movement curbs by another two weeks as it continues a joint effort involving police and military to reduce infections caused by the Coronavirus.

In a special live telecast on national television and social media, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the Movement Control Order (MCO) would be extended from the 15th to the 28th of April 2020, making it the second extension since the MCO was first brought into effect on the 18th of March 2020.




“On the advice of the Health Ministry and health experts, the government has decided to extend the MCO for another two weeks… The extension of the MCO will enable healthcare workers to contain the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak among the community.

“The extension is also in accordance with the view of the World Health Organisation (WHO), which urges countries against lifting movement restrictions immediately,” he said.

The MCO is currently in its fourth week, with allowances given to Malaysians to buy groceries, medicine or food or to conduct essential services within 10 kilometre distances from their homes.

Muhyiddin said the nation’s majority Malay-Muslims should forego the thought of celebrating the fasting month of Ramadan, as social distancing measures are likely to stay at least for the next few months.

“As long as the virus remains, social distancing must continue to be in place. We must always maintain good hygiene, avoid large gatherings and packed locations.

“With the upcoming Ramadan, we can no longer visit the bazaars to buy food to break fast. And we will also not be able to hold tarawih prayers at the mosques. So, perform your tarawih prayers at home with family.

“Maybe we cannot even ‘balik kampung’ as usual,” he said.
