COVID-19 : Hulu Langat Area Under Enhanced MCO!

The Malaysia Minister of Defence Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob just announced that Mile 21 until Mile 24 of Sungai Lui in Hulu Langat, Selangor will be placed under the Enhanced Movement Control Order :

This initiative follows the high number of COVID-19 cases in that area. The Malaysia Health Ministry detected 71 COVID-19 cases out of 274 students at the Maahad Tahfiz AnNabawiyyah religious school located at Mile 23, Sungai Lui in Hulu Langat.

Therefore, the Malaysian government, under the advice of the Health Ministry, will institute the Enhanced Movement Control Order at 12:01 AM 30 March and it will last until 13 April 2020.


What Happens When Hulu Langat Is Under Enhanced MCO?

The Enhanced Movement Control Order aims to curb the spread of COVID-19 from this area, through these methods :

  • residents and visitors already in this area will be prohibited from leaving, throughout the Enhanced MCO.
  • non-residents and visitors are prohibited from entering the area, throughout the Enhanced MCO.
  • all business activities in the Enhanced MCO area must stop
  • basic food supplies will be provided to all residents by the Social Welfare Department (Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat, JKM)
  • a medical base will be opened in the Enhanced MCO area
  • all roads in and out of the area will be closed
  • the police, military, civil defence and RELA volunteers will control the Enhanced MCO area

This move will affect seven villages – two Orang Asli villages and five Malay villages – with a total of 3,918 local residents, and about 700 homes.
