Selangor govt against a full-blown MCO

(FMT) – The Pakatan Harapan government of Selangor is against enforcing a full-blown movement control order (MCO) in the state, similar to the nationwide lockdown imposed in March last year.

Selangor Covid-19 Task Force chairman Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad said the state was still managing the Covid-19 situation well, adding that its infectivity rate was lower than that of Kelantan and Pahang.

Dzulkefly said this in a joint press conference with Selangor executive councillor for public health Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud today.

Earlier this week, health minister Dr Adham Baba said the health ministry was considering enforcing stricter SOPs or even a full-scale MCO in Selangor if the state fails to curb the spread of Covid-19.

He was asked why the MCO rules in Selangor were the same as in other states, despite its higher number of infections.
