The Malaysian government has just announced that those going out to buy food, daily essentials and seeking medical attention can now travel beyond the 10km radius limit throughout Phase Four of the movement control order.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that the public however should not go to places that are too far away from their residential area. Like the previous phases, he advised the public to find the nearest shop that is located within a 10km radius of their home. “For instance, if a person needs to go to the clinic and it is 15km away from his house, that will be allowed now.” he said.
Ismail Sabri also mentioned that one should not go to seek medical attention that is located 20km away just because the government has now allowed people to venture slightly further from the initial permissible area.
The government has slightly relaxed the MCO under Phase Four, which include allowing two people from a family to go out and run errands for food, medicine and other daily needs.
