Malaysia : RMCO / PKPP Restrictions Until 31 December!

As extended restrictions are significantly impacting the economy, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) decided to lift the CMCO / PKPB lockdown on less affected areas :

Except for states under CMCO / PKPB lockdown, all other areas in Malaysia are under the more lenient RMCO (Recovery Movement Control Order) or PKPP (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Pemulihan) restrictions.

The RMCO / PKPB restrictions is scheduled to end on 31 December 2020.
