: The Menara City One on Jalan Munshi Abdullah here will be placed under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) beginning March 31 until April 13.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the decision was made after the Ministry of Health had confirmed 17 COVID-19 infections at the residential tower.
“The EMCO will involve 3,200 residents at 502 condominium units and business premises in the tower,” he said in a statement today.
This is the third EMCO enforced by the government to contain the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
Previously, the government has enforced the EMCO in Kampung Dato’ Ibrahim Majid and Bandar Baharu Dato’ Ibrahim Majid in Simpang Renggam, Kluang, Johor, and areas covering Batu 21 to Batu 24 in Sungai Lui, Hulu Langat, Selangor.
Ismail Sabri said besides preventing the virus from spreading, the EMCO will also enable case detection activity to be carried out at all units.
During the implementation of the EMCO, residents are barred from leaving the area, he said, adding that visitors are also not allowed to enter the building.
“All business activities are suspended except for premises selling essential items in the building,” he said.
Ismail Sabri who is also Defence Minister said residents are allowed to order food that will be delivered to the main entrance at the building.
He said a Medical Base will be opened in the area while all access points to the building will be closed.
Ismail Sabri said the area will be under the control of the Royal Malaysia Police, the Malaysian Armed Forces, the Malaysia Civil Defence Force and the People’s Volunteer Corps.
“All residents are advised to remain calm and to give full cooperation to the MOH personnel as well as follow all instructions from authorities,” he said.
