KUCHING: The conditional movement control order (CMCO) will be enforced in all divisions across Sarawak from Jan18-31, except in Sibu which is already under the movement control order (MCO).
The decision made by the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) to impose the restriction was in view of the increasing number of Covid-19 cases in the state.
As discovered by New Sarawak Tribune, the public’s reaction to the enforcement of the CMCO was positive and they agreed with the committee’s decision.
They also hoped that the Covid-19 situation in Sarawak will improve soon with the implementation of the restriction order.
In my view, this restriction is timely because of the increase of infections. The decision to bring back the CMCO will result in more restrictions to completely flatten the curb and break the chain of Covid-19 infection.
The state’s decision to impose CMCO is relevant with the rising cases in the state. The restriction is to ensure that everyone’s health and safety are taken care of. I am worried at the same time, but it is a really good decision to impose the restriction.
Imposing the CMCO has it tolls on many working sectors. However, it is the best decision to break the chain of Covid-19 infections which has been spreading across the state. I hope people will be safe and work together to stop the virus.

I’m not surprised with the decision to impose CMCO. I believe it will curb the rising Covid-19 cases within the state. Since the announcement by SDMC to restrict people’s movements, the numbers of infected persons have been decreasing. I applaud the SDMC for taking action.
With the spike in cases in our state, it is a must to impose the CMCO as it will help to flatten the curve not just in our state, but in the country as well. The decision to reinstate the restriction is necessary to keep the spread of Covid-19 at bay.

In my opinion, it is a reasonable decision by SDMC to impose the CMCO in Sarawak because Covid-19 cases are rapidly increasing. By implementing it, we can flatten the curve in Sarawak.
