KUCHING: The public are reminded to keep their guards up despite the relaxation of restrictions with the imposition of the conditional movement control order (CMCO).

Education, Science and Technological Research assistant minister Dr Annuar Rapaee said the nation is still in the early stages of the CMCO — no time for people to be complacent.

He was commenting on a graph of projected Covid-19 cases with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) observed and unobserved against the actual number of cases released by the Health Ministry.

It depicted that the curve in the number of cases, minus imported cases and foreigners, has declined mirroring the early projections with the SOPs observed by the public.

“This graph shows the importance of adhering to the CMCO SOPs. Even though the graph is promising, we are still in the early stages of the CMCO to be complacent.

“We must continue to work together by wearing masks in public places, washing hands and using hand sanitisers, avoiding crowded places and practise social distancing,” he said in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

Dr Annuar also urged the people to report any instances of flouting of the CMCO SOPs by individuals or premises.

“Together we fight Covid-19,” he said.
