As Malaysians cautiously enter the fifth phase of the Movement Control Order, now termed as the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), many of us may think to start returning to some semblance of our normal lives. However, for some residents in Selayang and Kuala Lumpur, normalcy may take much longer to come into fruition after a number of neighbourhoods were disccovered to have been fenced off by barbed wire late last night.

According to Sin Chew Daily and China Press, Taman Wilayah and Taman Desa Bakti, both neighbourhoods which are located in the Selayang vicinity, were found to have been fenced off late last night. It was reported by both Chinese dailies that the operation was meant to prevent any further spread of Covid-19 cases beyond these neighbourhoods.
