COVID-19: People’s Attitude Determine Duration Of MCO

KUALA LUMPUR, March 30 — The rate of public compliance to the Movement Control Order (MCO) is now at 97 percent, not the full percentage that the government wants to achieve to break the chain of  COVID-19 infections.

There are still people who insist on hanging out in coffee shops and other public places, even violating the traffic rules imposed during the MCO. The most common reason given is that they are going out to buy food. But is it really necessary to go out four times a day to forage for food?

Tomorrow is the 14th day the MCO has been imposed, and there are two more weeks for Malaysians to improve their compliance rate. And the way for them to do this is by disciplining themselves to ‘stay at home’, and venturing out only when it is necessary.

Tomorrow too, the MCO is expected to go into the second stage, with sterner action taken against those who violate it, and hopefully, it will not be extended beyond April 14, as warned by Senior Minister (Security Cluster)  Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob recently.
