The number of daily COVID-19 cases have been hovering at the 700 to 800 mark for the past week or so.
The sudden spike in cases has been worrying, and it looks the authorities have no choice but to resort to harsh measures to contain the spread of the virus.
Numbers consistently rising
Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said
on Sunday (25 October) that the authorities may look into extending the current conditional movement control order (CMCO) past 27 October, Malay Mail
Dr Noor Hisham revealed that cases in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor have seen a consistent increase despite the districts being put under the CMCO since 14 October.
Therefore, he did not rule out the possible extension of the CMCO.
"If it continues to increase, we may propose an extension of the CMCO," he was quoted as saying.
Dr Noor Hisham revealed that the Health Ministry is monitoring the situation closely, and if there's no increase in cases in the three states, they would do away with an extension of the CMCO.
On Sunday (25 October), a total of 88 new cases were reported in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya saw an additional increase of 11 cases.
