BREAKING: The Restricted Movement Order in Malaysia Will Be Extended For Two More Weeks
So far, the Restricted Movement Order (RMO) has been in place since March 18, which was meant to be until March 31. It was then extended to April 14 due to the rising cases of COVID-19 and we needed to flatten the curve further.
Staying indoors has controlled the spread of COVID-19 as reported by the Ministry of Health to the Prime Minister’s office. The number of cases have also reduced which means that the RMO is working in most aspects.
Today, at 4pm, Malaysia’s Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has just announced that the RMO has been extended for TWO MORE WEEKS based on the advice of medical experts.
It will be until 28 April 2020.
This will be to allow the frontliners to be able to battle the pandemic as well as help flatten the curve further.
It is also in line with WHO’s advice to countries not to end their RMOs too soon.
