#TTFCovid19: The Government of Malaysia (GoM) has called on the people to avoid public gatherings for six months to a year even after the Movement Control Order (MCO) is lifted.

The matter was conveyed by Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah who said the norms and practices of Malaysians had to change with emphasis on social distancing and cleanliness.

Noor Hisham called for creative and innovative ideas such as the delivery of Ramadan Bazaar food directly to homes.

He said the implementation of the E-Ramadan Bazaar was a good idea as it saw a 70 per cent increase in home delivery services during the first phase of the MCO.
