A large number of army and police officers arrived at the Pudu area in the middle of the night last night (15 May) and started putting up barbed wires surrounding the buildings in the area.

According to reports on social media, the area has been put under semi-enhanced movement control order (SEMCO). A resident living there said that army trucks arrived at the area around 11pm and started putting up barbed wire fences around certain buildings and at road exits.

It is understood that besides Jalan Pudu, the affected roads are Jalan Kancil, Jalan Pasar, Jalan Landak, Lorong Brunei 2 and Lorong Brunei 3.

The SEMCO allows authorities to conduct Covid-19 tests on residents and foreign workers while people are still allowed to move in and out of the area if they have valid reasons.

It was reported that the Pudu area has a large concentration of refugees and undocumented migrants including from Myanmar. According to the Ministry of Health, Pudu is one of the four active clusters with 18 new cases recorded on 14 May.

Meanwhile, videos and photos of the incident have been circulating on social media showing army officers and police personnel stacking barbed wires around the buildings.
