Things were going great for a moment, but a brief lapse in effort has gotten us to this low point.
And now, it seems very likely that the government will be resorting to extreme measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that the government will be re-examining the structure of the recovery movement control order (RMCO), Malay Mail
This came after several states in Malaysia that have so far managed to stay in the green zone are now seeing recurring COVID-19 cases.
The states are Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor, Muhyiddin revealed.
He also said that he had discussed the current implementation of the RMCO during the National Security Council (NSC) special meeting on COVID-19 on Tuesday (3 November).
Muhyiddin said that despite the implementation of the RMCO, which was due to end in December, the states listed above have seen their status change from green to yellow or red.
Therefore, the government has no choice but to place some of these areas under the RMCO, he said.
The first state to be put under the RMCO since the Klang Valley and Sabah is the Seremban district
in Negeri Sembilan, which will be put under lockdown beginning Thursday (5 November) until 18 November.
Although being placed under the RMCO is cumbersome, but we feel that it's the best move at this point in time.
Stay safe out there, people!
