In his live announcement yesterday, Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin reminded us to stay cautious of the increasing number of cases so that we don’t have to go back into the First Phase of the Movement Control Order.
To reiterate points made by the PM, Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri made some important announcements today. If you missed it, don’t worry! We have all the important stuff summarised for you here below:
1. All returning Malaysians no longer allowed to quarantine at home starting Friday, 24th July 2020
Not only Malaysians but foreigners returning to Malaysia also will be asked to quarantine in government quarantine centres.
2. Those quarantined in government quarantine centres will bear the costs themselves
Since the announcement, it’s also been discovered that those subjected to this ruling are also expected to bear the full cost of quarantine themselves.
3. PDRM will take strict actions against those who disobey the RMCO
The minister clarified in his speech, that there will be no more warnings towards those who deliberately disobey set SOPs. This includes the 328 people who were detained for visiting pubs & nightclubs.
Previously, 96 individuals were detained by authorities when they were discovered violating SOPs at pubs and nightclubs.
4. Shopping malls encouraged to control the number of shoppers
Ever since the RMCO began, patrons visiting their local shopping malls increased tremendously. While the malls have followed set SOPs, the number of increasing shoppers is worrying.
To avoid any additional clusters, the minister encouraged mall owners to limit the number of shoppers and avoid overcrowding in any premise.
Stay tuned for more updates!
