Over the course of three phases of the Movement Control Order (MCO) imposed by our government, several areas have been placed under the Enhanced MCO to prevent the infection of Covid-19 from spreading outside of the areas.

So far, a total of six areas had been placed under the enhanced MCO (EMCO), and the lockdown on Selayang Baru in Gombak would be effective from today (25 April) onwards. According to Free Malaysia Today, the EMCO intends to curb the possibility of virus transmission from the Selayang wholesale market nearby.

Defence Minister Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that the residents at that area will be screened for Covid-19 and no one will be allowed to leave that area. Not only that businesses will be ordered to close, but outsiders will not be allowed into Selayang Baru as well.

Police and armed forces will be deployed to ensure all residents comply with the EMCO.

“All businesses there will close. Outsiders are not allowed into the area,” said Ismail.

Selayang Baru’s EMCO is expected to be in effect until 3 May and it will affect the following areas:

  • Jalan Indah 3 and Jalan Indah 5A, Selayang Indah
  • Jalan Indah 21, Lembah Indah, Selayang Baru
  • Jalan Besar Selayang Baru, Jalan 1 and Jalan Indah 21, Selayang Baru
  • Jalan 3, 5, 7 and 9, Selayang Baru
  • Jalan 2, 4, 6 and 8, Selayang Baru
  • Blok A, B and C, Selayang Makmur

The lockdown at Selayang Baru followed the coronavirus outbreak at the Selayang wholesale market, which is also known as the Kuala Lumpur wholesale market. It had been reported that the wholesale market was under lockdown since 21 April.

Ismail told the residents to stay calm and to contact the Gombak district disaster management unit for any daily needs.
