Health DG: MCO cannot end pandemic, only slow spread of Covid-19

The various stages of the movement control order (MCO) in place since March 18 are meant to contain the spread of Covid-19, but cannot end the pandemic, says Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

The Health director-general said that during a special briefing on Covid-19 issues here on Saturday (Nov 21), adding that the imposition of the conditional, enhanced and recovery MCO was meant to break the chain of infection within the community.

Dr Noor Hisham said the conditional MCO has proven to work, but the R-value is still between 0.9 and 1 now, and it is “not good enough”, adding that if the R-value can be brought down to below 0.5, then the recovery MCO can be resumed.

    Guna akal boleh x? Sebelum ni kita berjaya sampai bawah 10 kes. We need full lockdown for a while to reduce the case drastically. Tolong lebih pentingkan nyawa rakyat berbanding ekonomi negara. If not it will just climb more people will die bcoz keras kepala kerajaan.

    Sabah also no MCO despite the cases there! Why Selangor? Still, politics at play!
