KUALA LUMPUR: The Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) will be implemented in several housing estates in Mukim Sungai Seluang in Kulim, Kedah beginning Friday, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said the EMCO would affect 6,000 residents from 1,412 houses in Taman Bayam, Taman Bayam Indah, Taman Kangkong 1, Taman Kangkong 2, Taman Halia, Taman Cekur Manis, Taman Kobis, Taman Sawi and Taman Seri Limau.
“The Health Ministry (MOH) has conducted 197 targeted screenings and 50 positive Covid-19 cases have been recorded in this locality.
“Based on risk assessment and advice by MOH, the EMCO will be enforced in this locality for 14 days from Nov 27 until Dec 10,” he told a media conference on the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) updates here today.
He said with the enforcement of the EMCO, all residents must abide by the set standard operating procedure (SOP), which includes barring them from leaving the area except for emergency cases and the closure of schools, mosques and other houses of worship.
