The 10 km travel limit imposed from the previous Movement Control Order (MCO) is no more, said Senior Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob after the new relaxed Conditional Movement Control Order was announced by Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Last week, the government announced that most businesses will be allowed to resume operations beginning 4th of May 2020, as the National Security Council released a list of places and activities which we have translated, which are still not allowed.

That said, entry and exit into Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) areas are still prohibited. As of today, three new areas in Kuala Lumpur have been added to the list of EMCO areas. The three includes the Jalan Raja Bot area in Kampung Baru, residential areas of Taman Wilayah and Taman Desa Bakti in Selayang, which have all been classified as Red Zones.

The three new locations means there are now 10 locations under strict lockdown. Among them are:

  • Menara City One, Kuala Lumpur
  • Bangunan Selangor Mansion and Malayan Mansion, Kuala Lumpur
  • Masjid India and surrounding areas Jalan Munshi Abdullah, Jalan Dang Wangi, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Tun Perak and Jalan Ampang
  • Kampung Sungai Lui, Hulu Langat
  • Kampung Dato Ibrahim Majid and Bandar Baharu Dato Ibrahim Majid, Simpang Renggam, Johor
  • Selayang Baru
  • Bandar Baru Utara, Selayang

Also part of the new CMCO is that up to four people (from the same household) are now allowed to travel together in the same vehicle from the previous two, up from just one at the start of the MCO.

As for e-hailing services, drivers are only allowed to pick up two passengers – both of which are required to sit in the back – as announced by the National Security Council.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
