The targeted enhanced movement control order (MCO) in the area around the Alor Setar Prison in Kedah has been extended for another two weeks until Nov 1, said Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister said that on Sunday, adding that the extension is due to the continued detection of new Covid-19 cases at the prison.

Ismail added that the extension is to enable the implementation of continuous monitoring and screening in efforts to fully break the chain of Covid-19 at the prison, especially among the staff.
