One of the newest and most dangerous Covid-19 cluster in Malaysia is currently the Sivagangga cluster which started after a nasi kandar shop owner in Napoh, Jitra Kedah violated his quarantine order after returning from India on the 13th July.

While he first tested negative, he soon tested positive on the 29th July and has now caused 19 other people to be infected. To curb this, Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced today in his press conference that this four mukim (administrations) in Kedah will be implementing EMCO (Extended Movement Control Order) starting from 3rd August.
