SDMC chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas in announcing this today, noted that the number of positive Covid-19 cases was still high while the number of green zones decreasing.

“This indicates that the Covid-19 cases in the state are still unstable.

“Hence, the MCO in Sibu will be extended from Jan 30 at 12:01 midnight until Feb 14. Meanwhile, CMCO in all the other districts will be implemented from Feb 1 at 12:01 midnight until Feb 14 as well,” he said.

Sibu District was previously put under MCO for two weeks from Jan 16 to 29, but the district continues to record high number of positive Covid-19 cases which are linked to the Pasai Cluster.

Uggah revealed that there were only 11 green zones out of 40 districts and with the emergence of two new clusters meant there were ten active clusters in the state.
