Malaysia Extends Lockdown until further notice to Contain Spread of Coronavirus

KUALA LUMPUR: in the wake of rising Corona cases in Malasia, the country’s  Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has announced that it will extend current curbs until the Covid-19 pandemic is further contained.  In a statement on Sunday, Muhyiddin reportedly said the national recovery plan, which is divided into four phases, would see phase 1 remain in place until the targeted threshold are met.

A nationwide lockdown has been effective in Malaysia since June 1, which bans all economic and social activities except essential services. The country will move into Phase 2 if fresh daily infections dropped below 4,000 and at least 10 percent of the population fully vaccinated.

Phase 2 will see workplaces have up to 80 percent of staff return to work with some additional non-essential sectors being allowed to operate. Malaysia reported another 5,586 new Covid cases on Sunday, bringing the national total to 734,048. Another 60 more fatalities were also reported, which increased the overall death toll to 4,944.
