KOTA KINABALU: Kampung Padawan, Papar and Felda Sahabat 40 (Kampung Kembara Sakti) in Mukim TUngku, Lahad Datu will be placed under 14 days' enhanced movement control order (EMCO) due to a spike in Covid-19 cases.
Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said the EMCO in both of the localities which have a cumulative total of 25 Covid-19 cases will take effect on May 31.
"A total of 238 test samples have been taken in Kampung Padawan, Papar and 15 of the tests came back positive.
"In Felda Sahabat 40, a total of 10 cases have been recorded out of 28 residents screened in the locality," he said in a statement today.
Masidi said the decision to implement EMCO in these localities was made after a joint risk assessment with various agencies in the MCO Technical Committee and on the advice of the Ministry of Health.
"The implementation of EMCO aims to restrict the movement and transmission of infection
of Covid-19 from risk areas outside the locality."
