Menara City One Condominium located on Jalan Masjid India, Kuala Lumpur has been placed under lockdown after 17 Covid-19 cases were recorded.

According to Malaysia Kini, this is third lockdown, or enhanced movement control order (MCO) that the government has announced. The first two were applied on two villages in Simpang Renggam, Kluang on 27 March and seven villages in Hulu Langat yesterday (29 March) after a spike in Covid-19 cases there.

The Menara City One lockdown involves 3,200 residents in 502 residential units and 49 shops at the condominium, and will take effect at midnight until 13 April.

“The purpose of the enhanced MCO is to prevent Covid-19 from spreading out of the area,” said Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, who is also the coordinating senior minister for security matters.

This is the first specific building that an enhanced MCO has been applied to, and the first such order in an urban area.

However, even though the building is under lockdown, businesses selling essential goods at the complex will still be allowed to operate. Residents will also be allowed to order food online which will be delivered to the lobby.

Additionally, while residents are not allowed to leave the complex, they can still go out of their units.

“All residents are asked to remain calm, give their full cooperation to Health Ministry officials and obey instructions by the authorities,” he said.
