Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah

KUCHING: Sarawak is ready to implement the recovery movement control order (RMCO), said Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah.

She said Sarawakians had complied with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and the rules set by the government during the movement control order (MCO) and conditional movement control order (CMCO).

Fatimah added the next phase of the restriction order was a reasonable step before shifting to full normalisation phase.

She said the step would instill confidence among the people that the country was on the right track in winning the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Enforcement agencies are also very committed in doing their jobs. Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) at the state and divisional levels are working effectively and efficiently,” she pointed out in a statement via WhatsApp on Sunday.

Fatimah said the success of RMCO would, once again, depend on the cooperation of everyone in complying with the SOPs issued, social distancing practices and wearing of face masks in public places.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that the conditional movement control order (CMCO) would be replaced by the RMCO from June 10 until Aug 31.
