On the first day the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) was enforced in the state starting yesterday, Kelantan police found many were still claiming to be unaware of order.
Kelantan police chief, DCP Shafien Mamat said the situation could be due to the announcement on CMCO being made on a public holiday in the state.
Kelantan will come under a two-week conditional movement control order (CMCO) from tomorrow due to rising Covid-19 cases there, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said today.
Kelantan had been one of only three states in the peninsula that did not come under the CMCO earlier this month.
Except for Covid-19 patients, the Tumpat Hospital will no longer accept other cases.
Kelantan health director Datuk Dr Zaini Hussin who confirmed this, said the move was taken since last night as a precaution should Covid-19 cases continue to increase in the state.
He said emergency and trauma cases that needed to be warded would be sent to other hospitals such as the Raja Perempuan Zainab II, Tengku Anis and Pasir Mas hospitals.
