Heed EMCO SOPs to avoid extension


KUCHING: Kampung Muara Tebas residents in the Demak Laut constituency are reminded to heed the standard operating procedures (SOPs) to avoid an extension to the ongoing enhanced movement control order (EMCO) in the locality.

Demak Laut assemblyman Dr Hazland Abang Hipni said cooperation from the dwellers is needed to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission in the village.

“Continue to follow the instructions of the Health Ministry staff from time to time. Cooperate and continue to follow the SOPs for the two weeks imposed under the EMCO.

“This is to prevent the EMCO from being extended,” he said when met after witnessing the distribution of the food aid to residents in Kampung Muara Tebas on Tuesday.

Kampung Muara Tebas which has 1,842 residents was subjected to EMCO from June 16 to June 29 and 315 Covid-19 swab test samples were taken on June 18 and 19.

At the same time, Dr Hazland also thanked the frontline staff and government agencies such as the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia (JBPM), Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) and Marine Police, for helping to manage the control of EMCO in the village.

He also thanked the Malaysian Civil Defence Force (APM), People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela), Kampung Muara Tebas village development and security committee (JKKK), Public Works Department (JKR) and Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB).

Similarly, he also thanked the Rural Water Supply Department (JBLAB), Kuching North City Hall (DBKU), the Santubong parliamentary constituency service centre and the Demak Laut state constituency service centre.

“With the help of the frontliners, the EMCO implemented in Kampung Muara Tebas can run smoothly,” he said.
