Parts of Pudu area come under semi-enhanced MCO

KUALA LUMPUR: Parts of the Pudu area have been cordoned off by authorities under a semi-enhanced movement control order.

It is learnt that the area has not been placed under an enhanced MCO but rather similar to measures taken at the Chow Kit market.

On May 5, two areas in Selayang and Chow Kit were put under close supervision by the authorities to check the spread of Covid-19.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob had said that Taman Wilayah and Taman Desa Bakti in Selayang as well as Jalan Raja Bot in Chow Kit were not placed under enhanced movement control order during his daily media conference on that day.

He said they put up barbed wire at these three places to tighten the movement of residents.

Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa, had said the area was under semi-enhanced MCO.

“What it means is that we do not close the area but there will be limited access points.

“People without proper documents or individuals who are at high risk (of being exposed to the virus) will not be allowed to go out.

“Health Ministry personnel will also carry out Covid-19 testing, ” he said during a press conference on May 5.
