KOTA KINABALU: A total of two localities in Kudat and Tawau, as well as one in Lahad Datu, will be placed under a 14-day enhanced movement control order (EMCO) starting Tuesday (18 June) until 1 July.


Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said in Kudat, the two localities involved are Kampung Landung Ayang and Taman Lavender which both have a cumulative total of 27 Covid-19 cases.


“In Tawau, the localities that will be placed under EMCO are Kampung Bukit Gemuk and Kampung Tanjung Batu Keramat with 22 positive cases,” he said in a statement today.


Meanwhile, in Lahad Datu the locality involved is Perumahan Etara, Jalan Agaseh with 15 positive cases recorded.


Masidi added the decision to impose EMCO on these localities was made in order to restrict the public movement so that the virus will not spread to other communities.
