CONTINUE ROLE TO BREAK COVID-19 CHAIN, EWON REMINDS SABAHANS
14 OCTOBER 2020
KOTA KINABALU: Kadamaian State Assemblyman Datuk Ewon Benedick has called upon the Sabahans to continue complying with the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) directives in order to break the Covid-19 infection chain in the state.
He said while the nation’s frontliners are coming up with various approaches and strategies to curb the spread of the virus, the public should also play a role in complying with the SOP set by the Ministry of Health.
“I believe the co-operation of all parties to comply with the set CMCO instructions and SOP will be able to reduce infection cases, thus breaking the chain of the infection.
“Let us all remind ourselves to always practice new norms and exercise better self-control at all times to stay safe,” Ewon said, commenting on the implementation of the 14-day CMCO throughout Sabah which began on October 13, Tuesday.
“Wear face mask in public places, observe social distance, and wash hands with soap or use hand sanitiser frequently,” he reminded.
Senior Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob was quoted as saying that CMCO was imposed due to the increase of positive cases in Sabah.
Prior to this, several districts in the state have been placed under the CMCO which include Lahad Datu, Tawau, Kunak, Semporna, Kota Kinabalu, Penampang and Putatan, with several localities under Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO).
Apart from that, inter-district travel ban across Sabah has also been imposed since October 3. Civil servants are however exempted from the ban.
