Health Ministry Cancels Full MCO For Third Wave Due To How It Will Impact The Economy, Says Noor Hisham
Although the CMCO is still ongoing, it’s no doubt that there still has been an increase of cases within the past few months which makes us reminisce on the times when we had only 10 cases a day instead of 100. However as much, as we would like those days back, it might just be too difficult now.
According to director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah in FMT News, the health ministry actually had plans to implement a full movement control order (MCO) regime but decided a conditional movement order would be sufficient instead as an MCO would impact the economy.
He also stated that the CMCO has done wonders and even managed to curb the spread of Covid-19 infections and without it, about four million Malaysians were expected to have been infected with the virus.
Although the MCO from March 18 to May 4 was proven to be successful, once again it would pose a threat to the economy. Till then he has continued to remind everyone to take care of their hygiene and comply with safety restrictions in order to lessen the spread.
