The effectiveness of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) can only be determined after the 14-day long incubation period concludes on May 18, according to Ministr of Health Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.
He said the ministry has yet to see the outcome of the CMCO, which came into force on May 4, and has since been extended for another four weeks from May 12 until June 9.
KKM is closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation including the daily new cases, cumulative total cases and active cases. However, to see the effectiveness of the CMCO can only be determined after May 18, (or) at least during the incubation period of 14 days.
He said if the cases after May 18 is still under control, the ministry will consider formulating more Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) to facilitate the reopening of several other sectors such as the social and education sectors.
“Hence, it is up to the public to comply to the SOP and exercise social distancing to reduce the number of Covid-19 cases in the country.” he said.
