Two flats in Kuala Lumpur have become the latest locations to be placed under an enhanced movement control order (EMCO), after a high number of COVID-19 cases were detected at both premises.
Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, in announcing this today, there were 15 positive cases of COVID-19 detected at the Selangor Mansion and Malayan Mansion buildings along Jalan Masjid India.
The EMCO at the two buildings, which starts today, involves 6,000 residents, most of whom are foreigners, and will last until all the residents are screnned.
The restrictions will see non-residents and visitors prohibited from entering the premises, and even residents, remaining in their respective units.
All business activities at the buildings, which also incorporates commercial units, are to cease, except for shops selling essential items at the buildings.
Food delivery is allowed but it must be picked up from designated areas.
According to The Star, security personnel were seen installing barricades, including barbed wire fences, around the area following the announcement.
Prior to the two latest locations, three other areas- namely Simpang Renggam in Johor, seven villages at Hulu Langat in Selangor and Menara City One in Kuala Lumpur, were placed under EMCO due to high number of COVID-19 cases.
