Based on recent reports, it seems that the Movement Control Order (MCO) is working, as after two weeks, officials begin to see that the curve is indeed flattening
That's actually good news, as it shows that Malaysians are now adhering to the MCO.
However, on the not-so-good news end, there are still new Red Zones being registered in the charts.
Still a lot of work to do
According to a report by Malay Mail
, Batu Pahat in Johor Bahru became the latest district to be labelled as a Red Zone.
As of 1 April, Batu Pahat has registered a total of 44 COVID-19 positive cases.
With that, there are now a total of 16 Red Zones, or COVID-19 hot spots, in the country.
However, the district that has the most number of positive COVID-19 cases in Malaysia is Hulu Langat
Based on the data released by the Health Ministry, the district has recorded a total of 273 COVID-19 cases
as of 1 April
As such, The Star Online
reported that seven villages in Sungai Lui in Hulu Langat are now observing the enhanced Movement Control Order, barring anyone from entering or leaving the area.
The districts of Lembah Pantai in Kuala Lumpur (226) and Petaling in Selangor (224) have the second and third most cases.
Here's the full list of COVID-19 Red Zones in Malaysia:

We still have a lot of work to do before we truly flatten the curve, so please stay home until the MCO is over.
Together, we can beat COVID-19!
