MCO to be reimplemented in Malaysia starting 13 Jan 2021

During the broadcast at 6pm today, Prime Minister Muhyiddin had announced that the Movement Control Order (MCO) will be reimplemented in certain states for 14 days starting from 13 January 2021. There’s a mixed response from Malaysians, where some are worried about the economy while others debated on the virus spreading rapidly.

Heavy feelings were felt when the decision was announced. Nevertheless, we need to pay attention to the details this time so that we are able to contain the virus once and for all.
