EMCO in 6 Terengganu, Kelantan areas to end May 4 - minister


The enhanced movement control order (MCO) in five localities in Hulu Besut, Terengganu, and one in Machang, Kelantan will end tomorrow as scheduled.

Senior Minister (Security) Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the five localities in Hulu Besut involved Kampung Belaoh, Kampung PPRT Belaoh Baru, Kampung Keruak, Kampung Pak Sik, and Felcra Keruak.

The one in Machang involves Maahad Tahfiz Al-Quran Wa Qiraat (MTAQ), Pulai Chondong.

“In Hulu Besut, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said there is a downward trend of Covid-19 cases there and the clusters are under control while the last case was recorded on April 20, which involved four positive cases who have all been treated and all the close contacts have also completed their 14-day observation period.

“At the MTAQ, the MOH confirmed a drop in the number of cases and that the clusters were under control, with the last 16 cases recorded on April 30,” he said in a statement today.

Meanwhile, Ismail said Taman Tanah Putih Baru in Kuantan, Pahang would be placed under enhanced MCO from May 5 to 18 following a spike in Covid-19 cases there.

“As of May 2, the MOH has recorded 11 cases out of 40 screenings carried out on the residents in the area, with 29 more samples still awaiting results.

“The implementation of the enhanced MCO is to ensure the residents of Taman Tanah Putih Baru who are at risk of being infected remain within the area and do not infect other communities,” he said.

He said 519 individuals were arrested for violating the standard operating procedure (SOP) yesterday, with 508 of them compounded and 11 remanded.

Among the offences were failure to record their personal particulars/register to enter premises (207 cases), failure to physically distance (72), entertainment centre activities (60), not wearing face masks (50), and others (130).
