Health DG: MCO will re-enforced if Covid-19 cases go up
Jul 30, 2020
The Health Ministry says the Movement Control Order or the Conditional MCO will be re-enforced if local transmission of positive Covid-19 cases escalate.
It says the government would have no choice but to do so, to break the chain of Covid-19 infection in the community.
The Ministry says the recent rise of COVID-19 infections in the community was because people had violated SOPs.
This comes as 13 new Covid-19 cases were reported yesterday, after recording double digits in new cases over the last week.
The fresh cases pushes the total number of infected patients nationwide to 8,956 with 220 active cases.
