Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said the state government does not have the power to declare a “lockdown” to contain the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak as that decision lies with the Prime Minister and Home Minister.

He was met by reporters after attending the opening of the third term of the 14th Selangor Legislative Assembly sitting on Monday (March 16).
