#TTFCovid19: The government is reportedly considering stricter measures such as complete lockdowns at locations listed as Covid-19 high-risk areas or red zones.

Earlier today, Berita Harian reported road congestions at several stretches within Kuala Lumpur as more people have begun to disregard or take lightly the Movement Control Order (MCO).

According to the Malay daily, areas manned by police and army personnel conducting road-blocks suffered traffic jams since 9 am.

A complete lockdown in red zones may be advisable if motorists continue to ignore the MCO.


PETALING JAYA: The government is reportedly considering stricter measures such as complete lockdowns at locations listed as Covid-19 high-risk areas or red zones.

According to a daily, the matter was relayed by Ismail Sabri who said agencies in the National Security Council (NSC), namely the Health Ministry, Royal Malaysia Police and the Malaysian Armed Forces would decide if such precautions are needed.




 “We will come out with a standard operating procedure that is more detailed concerning areas of high risk, or red-zones,” he said.

Ismail explained that such drastic actions cannot be enforced over large areas like Gombak – a high-risk area- which has many districts within it.

“There are many things that we need detailed further, for example the Health Ministry said Gombak (as a red-zone).

“But where in Gombak? Gombak is big, the MP of Gombak said it includes the areas of Selayang and Ulu Langat, so it’s a big area.

“And so we are trying to identify areas that should be focused on for further action that might be taken,” he said.

The MCO went into effect two days later and is currently in its seventh day, with the possibility of it being extended beyond the designated two-week period now looming in the horizon.

A complete lockdown in red zones may be advisable if motorists continue to ignore the MCO.
