The Malaysian Health Coalition (MHC) understands and supports the government’s decision to transition into the recovery phase of the movement control order (RMCO). The gradual reopening of public life in Malaysia must rely on appropriate guidance from all areas of government and the Ministry of Health. We must remain vigilant until a vaccine for Covid-19 is available.
Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today announced that the country’s Movement Control Order (MCO) which ends on June 9, will be replaced with the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) starting from June 10 until August 31 with more relaxed conditions. This includes allowing for domestic tourism and interstate travel, except for areas placed under Enhanced MCO (EMCO). Almost all social, religious, business and educational activities are also allowed to resume in stages under strict SOPs during the RMCO. We asked experts to comment on this latest development.
