EMCO in several localities in five states — Ismail Sabri (Updated)

KUALA LUMPUR: Several localities in five states will be placed under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) from June 12 to June 25 to curb the spread of Covid-19, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said three residential areas in Temerloh, Pahang – Taman Temerloh Jaya, Taman Temerloh Jaya Indah and Taman Temerloh Makmur – and Ladang Tereh Mill in Kluang, Johor would be under the EMCO.

The EMCO will also be enforced at Lorong Pasir Putih 1, Taman Pasir Putih Fasa 1 in Putatan, Sabah; Kampung Kolong 2 in Kuching, Sarawak; as well as Kampung Tajin, Kuala Berang in Hulu Terengganu, Terengganu.

“The SOP for all EMCO areas is the same as that announced previously. Further information can be accessed at the National Security Council’s website at www.mkn.gov.my,” he said in a statement on the MCO today.

Meanwhile, the EMCO at five localities will end on June 11 (11.59 pm), namely Kuala Berang sub-district, Hulu Terengganu, Terengganu; Sitiawan sub-district, Manjung, Perak; Kampung Mook, Kinarut, Papar, Sabah; Kampung Baru Durok, Keningau, Sabah; and Kampung Sungai Langgas di Kunak, Sabah.

Ismail Sabri also announced that the government agreed to extend the entry ban period for travellers to Labuan, starting today till June 30.

Meanwhile, to ensure all parties, including industry and manufacturing players comply with the standard operating procedure (SOP) throughout MCO 3.0, he said the government will intensify monitoring operations and take stern action against those who violate the SOP.

“Since June 1 to 9, 2021, the compliance operations taskforce has inspected 268 factories to ensure there were no SOP violations and from that total, 75 factories were issued compounds while 59 were ordered closed,” he said.

Regarding the compliance operation, he said 907 individuals were detained on SOP violation offences, with 877 of them issued compounds, 28 remanded while two were on bail.

Failure to wear face masks was the highest recorded offence, with 208 cases; failure to record personal details/registering at a location (148), unauthorised inter-district or interstate travel and eating at premises (147); not observing physical distancing (123); violating movement control orders (81); carrying passengers over the allowed limit (79); entertainment outlet activities (28) and failure to comply with orders (10) and other offences (83) — Bernama
