Movement Control Order: 12 Essential Things You Need To Know While Combating Covid 19

Movement Control Order: 12 Essential Things You Need To Know While Combating Covid 19

Today marks the first day that we Malaysians have to go through 14 days of restricted movement, whereby we should be staying at home to limit the spread of the much-dreaded Coronavirus code-named Covid 19. The government has issued the Movement Control Order (MCO) under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 and the Police Act 1967. This means it is an offence if we fail to comply with the orders and restrictions imposed by the government. Though some might feel uncomfortable but it is a necessary evil in order to contain the virus before it gets out of hands!

Movement Control Order: 12 Essential Things You Need To Know While Combating Covid 19
So far there are 194, 735 confirmed coronavirus infected cases worldwide!

Get the latest statistics at www.worldometers.com/coronavirus

Correct at the time of the writing, 2 deaths have been recorded in Malaysia and if we are not taking drastic measures now more will succumb to Covid 19 like what is happening to the Italians (2,503 deaths). Though 49 have recovered, the number of Malaysians being infected keeps on increasing. There are 673 people infected by Covid 19 and more are expected to fall prey to the highly contagious virus. So 14 days of restricted movement order imposed by the government is necessary and it is hoped that we could curb the virus from wreaking more havoc in our country. Here are 12 things that we need to know about the MOC!

12 Things You Need To Know About Movement Control Order In Malaysia:

1. Government & private offices except those which are involved in essential services to be closed. Good call as it means we can significantly reduce any unwanted exposure and contact.

2. No religious activities (Thank God). It is really saddening to note that more than 50% of the Malaysians infected with Covid 19 are those who have attended the Sri Petaling Tabligh last month-February. The Muslim gathering attended by a staggering 16,000 people has become the number 1 culprit for the surge in number of infection. Why didn't they cancel such gathering in the first place?

3. All shops except businesses dealing with daily essentials to be shut down. This is really good news as it means that we can still get our daily necessities such as food and groceries from sundry shops and supermarkets. After all this is not a total lock-down, so no panic buying ok! And please...leave the toilet papers...you cannot eat them...
.
4. Restriction for Malaysians to travel abroad. Anyone with a sound mind will agree that right now it is wise to stay put at home and wait for the virus to be gone. This ban means that no virus will be coming in or out. Good!

5. Restricted entry for foreign visitors. Though we Malaysians welcome tourists from all over the world, now is not the right time to host anybody as we want to totally reduce any possibility of anyone bringing in the virus! Sorry peeps! You can visit Malaysia after Corona decides to be gone!

6. 14 days of quarantine for those who are returning from abroad. We know that home is where the heart belongs right? So we will welcome you home but rest assured that we want you to have a clean slate before you return home. I am sure you family members would want this as well.

7. No social gatherings whatsoever. It is already confirmed that Covid 19 is really damn contagious meaning that it is an airborne virus that could spread easily from one person to another in an open space. Add wind and momentum and you will be next one gasping for air in the hospital. So stay at home!
.
8. All schools, pre-schools and universities to be closed. Children, teenagers and undergraduates  and teachers will be rejoicing in this historic ruling to shut down all educational institution. Classrooms will be fertile grounds for virus to infect many people at the same time. So yay~kids and teens, do enjoy your extra 1 week (minimum) of holidays watching TV, playing games and binge-eating.

9. No interstate-travel (so no Cuti-cuti Malaysia) and no Balik Kampung (returning to hometown). Schools are closed and companies are shut down, so it is time for family bonding right? Why don't we quality time having family vacation right? NO! NO! NO! Ouh~you want to be filial children huh? So you want to visit your parents back in your hometown? NO! NO! NO!

10. You'll be JAILED for up to 2 years or fined or both if you defy the MCO (Movement Control Order) 😓 YES~in case you didn't know, it is a serious offence if you defy the orders that have been imposed by the government. You are actually supposed to help contain the virus and not spread it. So just stay at home and do what you are not able to do usually. Period.
.
11. You can still 'tapao' (take away) or order your food or beverages from your favourite restaurants, eateries via delivery such as GrabFood, FoodPanda etc. Yay 🤤 Though you are restricted from dining in your favourite mamak stall, you can still drive through all the McDonald, KFC and Starbucks outlets to get your daily fix of junk food and sugar-infused drinks. At least obesity won't kill you quickly right?

12. Practise Social Distancing & Wear Face Mask. If and only if you really have to leave the comfort of your home to run some unavoidable errands or to grab some groceries, make sure you put on your face mask and practise social distancing. It is recommended that you be vigilant and shot at anyone who is about to enter your territory of 2 metres radius! Practise now, "Social Distancing! 2 Metres! Get out of my way!" Ok~memorize these lines!
