The prime minister has taken to live broadcast to give an update on the current Covid-19 situation in Malaysia.
With the rising number of cases (we hit 432 on 5 October and 691 on 6 October), Malaysians have been getting increasingly anxious. A huge part of the cases come from the Kedah and Sabah clusters. However, due to the Sabah elections, many voters who went back to vote and came back to Semenanjung for work/ study have contracted the virus.
In the said live broadcast on 6 October, PM Muhyiddin admits that the election in Sabah was among the reasons behind the spike in cases. He said that it was unavoidable after the state assembly was dissolved.
PM Muhyiddin has said that the government did not consider implementing another MCO. Rather, they will implement TEMCOs which are Targeted Enhanced Movement Control Order at areas where a high number of cases were reported. He elaborated that by having another MCO, there will be effects on the nation.
Stay tuned for more updates!
