KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 6 — Two localities in Sabah and one in Pahang will be placed under the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) from September 8 to 21, following a risk assessment by the Health Ministry and the Covid-19 infection trend in the areas.

He said in Pahang the area involved is Kampung Dusun Pak Senam, Ulu Jelai sub-district in Lipis.
He added that the EMCO which was earlier imposed at two Sabah localities involving Kampung Tanjung Batu Tengah in Tawau and Taman Limauan, Kinarut in Papar has been extended until September 21.
Meanwhile, the EMCO implemented at 22 localities in Perak, 17 in Sabah and one in Pahang would end tomorrow as scheduled, while the EMCO at a locality in Kota Marudu, Sabah was terminated today instead of the scheduled date (September 11). — Bernama
