The enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) which is currently in force in nine Kuala Lumpur localities will end today as scheduled, according to Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The EMCO in the Klang Valley
On Thursday, Ismail Sabri said that among these nine localities are four People’s Housing Programme (PPR) areas. These PPR areas are Kerinchi, Sri Semarak, Kampung Baru Air Panas, and Batu Muda. The five other areas of Kuala Lumpur which would also be freed of the EMCO are Flat Sri Sabah, Taman Ikan Emas, Kampung Padang Balang, Taman Koperasi Polis (phase 2), and Bandar Baru Sentul.
A further six localities of Kuala Lumpur had their respective EMCO periods end on July 10. These were Taman Koperasi Polis (Phase 1), Flat Section 1 and 2 in Wangsa Maju, Kampung Batu Muda, Kampung Puah, and Flat Desa Pandan including Baiduri and Delima.
However, Ismail Sabri did not comment on the EMCO which is currently being enforced in Selangor. Every district of Selangor apart from Sabak Bernam is currently in the midst of an EMCO. This EMCO has been enforced since Jul 3. It is expected to end today unless any further announcements reverse this decision.
The EMCO Elsewhere
Ismail Sabri also stated that the EMCO in six areas of Sabah will end today. These six areas are Kampung Muhibbah in the district of Putatan, Kampung Lingkodon in Kota Belud, Kampung Goshen in Kota Marudu, Kampung Pintas Kubu in Beaufort, and Kampung Mangga and Kampung Kijang in Tawau.
Three other areas of the state will be placed under an EMCO from July 17 to 30. These areas are Kampung Perpaduan Gumpa in Kudat, Sabah Forestry Industries’ housing area in Sipitang, and the Tawau prison and staff quarters.
The areas in Kuala Lumpur and Sabah are not the only ones in the country where the EMCO will be ending today. The EMCO in Mukim Kuala Kuantan 1 and 2 in Pahang will also come to a close.
Three areas in Kerian, Perak, will undergo an EMCO from July 17 to 30. These areas are Kampung Tersusun Pondok Tanjung, Kampung Binjai, and the Tropicana Bukit Merah apartments.
A further three areas of the country which are already under an EMCO will experience extensions. These are the Latexx Manufacturing Sdn Bhd factory and its workers’ quarters in Taiping, Perak; Taman Mewah in Alor Gajah, Melaka; and Taman Jaya Diri in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. All three areas will see an EMCO extension to July 30.
Ismail Sabri also mentioned that police arrested 438 people on Wednesday for violating regulations in force due to the movement control order (MCO). Of these 438 people, 404 were compounded and 33 were remanded. The one remaining person was granted bail.
