Will the current Conditional Movement Control Order, with its relaxed regulations, be extended, or will a decision be made to end it? Well, for those of you who have been waiting on an answer for this question, that would hinge on a number of factors, according to our Health Director-General, Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.


According to Health Director-General Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah during his daily press briefing yesterday (7th May 2020), the decision to extend or end the CMCO period will depend on the current trend of cases seen both today and tomorrow, as well as the current rate of infection of Covid-19 in Malaysia.

“We are still monitoring the current CMCO period until 12th May. But on 8th and 9th May, the Ministry of Health will observe the trend, before advising the Prime Minister on the decisions he may make.”

“Whether the CMCO will end on 12th May or be extended, will depend on a few factors. It includes the number of daily Covid-19 cases recorded domestically, and the rate of infection, which currently stands at 1,584 cases.” he said.

Reports from Harian Metro have also mentioned that at this point in time, the Health Director-General has said that Malaysia has no plans to execute any ‘exit strategies’, despite the current trend of new cases having been reduced to consistent double-digits. This comes after a new cluster of Covid-19 patients was found among security guards in Cheras yesterday (7th May 2020).


Those who are infected within this new cluster have thankfully been identified by the Ministry of Health, and they will be quarantined and receive further treatment for their condition, as reported by Berita Harian.

What do you guys think of this development?
