Was CMCO / PKPB Extended To 31 December 2020?

Was the CMCO / PKPB lockdown extended to 31 December 2020 by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin?

Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!


Was CMCO / PKPB Extended To 31 December 2020?

The viral claim consisted of a video of Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, with the message:

CMCO extended until 31/12

In the video, the Prime Minister appeared to announce that the CMCO / PKPB lockdown would be extended until 31 December 2020.


No, CMCO / PKPB Was Not Extended To 31 December 2020!

The video definitely shows Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin announcing that the lockdown was extended to 31 December 2020.

However, this video was recorded on 28 August 2020, and he was announcing the extension of the RMCO (Recovery Movement Control Order) or PKPP (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Pemulihan) to 31 December 2020.

You can see PKPP (RMCO) mentioned in the screenshot below, not PKPB (CMCO).

The Malaysian Prime Minister is expected to announce an extension of the CMCO lockdown later this week.

But the extension is expected to be for an additional 2 weeks – from 7 December until 20 December, not until 31 December 2020.

However, nothing is certain until the official announcement is made.

This is the second fake news about a lockdown extension today, after the PKPD / EMCO extension hoax.
