Penang proposes targeted CMCO

Author:   |    Publish date:


GEORGE TOWN: The state special security committee meeting today has proposed that consideration be given to impose the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) only on targeted localities instead of the whole state.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, in a statement issued after the meeting, said the state National Security Council (NSC) would bring up the proposal at the special NSC meeting scheduled for tomorrow.

"Today's meeting suggested that the CMCO should only be implemented in targeted localities, such as sub-districts and affected localities.

"As of yesterday, only sub-district 12 in the southwest district and sub-district 13 in the northeast district remain as red zones. 

"The George Town sub-district, sub-district 6 and the Seberang Prai Selatan, Seberang Prai Tengah and Seberang Prai Utara districts are categorised as orange zones," he said.

Chow said during the meeting, the State Health Department also reported 14 active Covid-19 clusters in the state as of yesterday.

They are the Remand Prison Cluster, Seberang Perai Prison Cluster, Bayan Cluster, Tembaga Cluster, Permatang Cluster, Intan Cluster, Rengas Cluster, Rajawali Cluster, Beringin Cluster, Damar Laut Cluster, Assumption Cluster, Bayan Indah Cluster, Summer Cluster and Seri Pasir Cluster.

"The current CMCO will expire on Sunday. As such, this meeting is important in evaluating the risks presented by the health department which can be used as a guideline to prepare for any announcements.

"We, in Penang, hope a good decision will be made to balance public health and economic recovery," he added.

At today's meeting, Chow said each district officer had been tasked to identify suitable locations for the state health department to use as quarantine facilities and follow-up of Covid-19 testing activities should there be any spike in cases, in addition to the quarantine facility at the Penang Caring Society Complex.

Chow also said foreign workers in the red zones in Penang would be tested using the Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Test Kit, as approved by the Health Ministry, from next Wednesday (Dec 9) onwards.
