#TTFCovid19: Prolonged Movement Control Order in all regions may not be best solution

At some point, one has to ask a task force comprising economic, medical and social experts if the continuation of excessive control in a given region is necessary and if such control would crumple the economy in ways that could have been prevented. Source (pic): TTF Files

#TTFCovid19: The Movement Control Order (MCO), imposed by the Government of Malaysia (GoM) to break the chain of Covid-19 infections, should be relaxed in stages based on nationwide infection patterns and risk assessments.

Currently in its fourth week, the MCO is said to have succeeded in preventing an unwanted spike in cases and has presented the GoM with enough time to categorize geographical zones in the country according to risk of infection.

There has to be a Special Task Force or committee entrusted to weigh in all factors – social, economical and health – before deciding how best to relax the MCO and at what point having excessive control would prove detrimental.

Having a prolonged MCO that entails all geographical zones may be the “safest general approach” for medical experts but most certainly isn’t the “best approach” or the smartest one if we were to delve deep into the matter.


PETALING JAYA: The Movement Control Order (MCO), imposed by the Government of Malaysia (GoM) to break the chain of Covid-19 infections, should be relaxed in stages based on nationwide infection patterns and risk assessments.

Currently in its fourth week, the MCO is said to have succeeded in preventing an unwanted spike in cases and has presented the GoM with enough time to categorize geographical zones in the country according to risk of infection.




If it is a red zone, there could be complete lockdowns, as in the case of some areas in Simpang Renggam and Hulu Langat.

As for other zones, barricades could be placed along major roads to prevent inhabitants of one zone from venturing into another.

A zone in one state could be as large as the state itself or could encompass parts of the state, depending on the number of cases and its spread within said state.

As for the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri, the police and military can prevent interstate travel by having strict checkpoints along all major highway and trunk road exit and entry points to tame the ‘balik kampung’ fever.

To disallow the gradual relaxation of the MCO will have dire consequences on the economy and the well-being of the people, be it psychologically or financially.

There has to be a Special Task Force or committee entrusted to weigh in all factors – social, economical and health – before deciding how best to relax the MCO and at what point having excessive control would prove detrimental.
