The Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) in Kg Padang Che Mas, Baling, Kedah will end as scheduled on Oct 31.
This was announced by Senior Defense Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob today during his daily press conference on non-health matters pertaining to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The village was placed under EMCO on Oct 18.
The federal government today announced that it has decided to extend the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) for the Alor Setar Prison in Kedah by another two weeks until November 1.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob noted that the initial EMCO on the prison was for a two-week period from October 5 to October 18, but said that the EMCO is being extended due to the continued detection of new Covid-19 cases at the prison.
A ‘makeshift hospital’ facility is being set up at the Pokok Sena Prison in Kedah to treat Covid-19 patients, said Health Minister Datuk Seri Adham Baba.
He said two workshop blocks in the prison were being makeshift into a health facility to provide Covid-19 treatment, including for patients who need oxygen assistance.
