Not unexpected that PM said MCO will be extended

Focus Malaysia:

PM: MCO will be extended until daily infections down to 4k

The movement control order (MCO) will not end tomorrow, as the first phase continues until the threshold of less than 4,000 cases a day is reached, said Prime Minister Tan Sri Mahiddin Yassin.

“The Government will announce more comprehensive assistance to all groups of society on Monday or Tuesday,” he added.

The Health Ministry (MOH) yesterday reported 5,803 new COVID-19 cases, with 81 fatalities, bringing the cumulative death toll to 4,884.

The number of deaths in June alone thus far is 2,088.

The current MCO 3.0 was initially introduced from June 1 to 14 and was later extended to June 28.

On June 15, Mahiaddin unveiled a four-phased exit plan for the nation with regard to the pandemic, known as the National Recovery Plan (NRP).

Each phase is expected to take about two months with social sectors – including schools – to reopen gradually under phase three, which is projected to kickstart in September.

Currently, Malaysia is under phase one and transitioning to the next one will depend on whether three criteria are met.

These are the number of daily COVID-19 cases, nationwide intensive care unit (ICU) capacity and the number of people who have been vaccinated (with two doses).

To transition from phase one to phase two, the country will have to record an average of below 4,000 COVID-19 cases daily, ICU capacity easing to moderate levels and 10% of the population being fully vaccinated. – June 27, 2021.
