CMCO That Is a RMCO













Covid-19 numbers are still high but they're mostly workplace infections concentrated in certain clusters.

Yesterday, Malaysians were told that the Conditional Movement Control Order will be extended to December 20 for Kuala Lumpur, Selangor (with the exception of the districts of Sabak Bernam, Hulu Selangor and Kuala Selangor), Sabah, as well as four districts in Johor (Kota Tinggi, Johor Baru, Batu Pahat, Kulai).

The CMCO will end tomorrow in Putrajaya, Labuan, Penang (except certain areas), Perak (except certain areas), Kelantan (except four districts) and Negri Sembilan (except Seremban and Port Dickson).

The rest of the country will revert back to the RMCO. 


And then there’s the announcement that the police will no longer carry out roadblocks from December 07 onwards. Citizens no longer need to ask for the police’s permission to travel to different districts within a state, or even from state to state. Travel restriction remaining within Malaysia will be in and out of EMCO areas only.

They're making things sound convoluted and confusing  but hey, who's complaining?! It’s something that I’ve been advocating for a long time now. 

Whatever the authorities may say, it is actually a return to the Recovery Movement Control Order phase. Duh!
