Residents at Mentari Court, Petaling Jaya were heard celebrating their ‘freedom’ after being under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) for 12 days. At 12am on 13 July, the EMCO was lifted and fireworks were blasted off while several residents shone lights from their windows.

According to Petaling District Officer Datuk Johary Anuar, an application to the National Security Council (MKN) was submitted to end the EMCO in the area earlier as all health screening and vaccination processes on residents were completed, reported Astro Awani.



“Most of the residents in the Mentari Court area have been screened and those found positive have been isolated,” he said.

“Even though they have been vaccinated, we hope the people here practice the SOPs set by the government so that we can curb the spread of Covid-19.”

Petaling Jaya District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid, who was also present at the location, explained that a total of 9,504 residents underwent health screening during the 12 days of EMCO.

  • Residents screened: 9,504
  • Residents who underwent RT-PCR test: 5,797
  • Residents who tested positive: 419 (7.2%)
  • Residents who were vaccinated: 6,178 (65%)
  • Residents who received their first dose: 6,102
  • Residents who received their second dose: 76
  • Residents who are already vaccinated: 2,876

However, residents under 18 years old who had allergies to medicine and suffering from other illnesses were not vaccinated.
