Following the rise of confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Malaysia, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin on Monday announced a 14-day lockdown in the Capital City and four States which will take effect from Wednesday.
Malaysia is currently facing a tough time as the Coronavirus spreads across the country leaving the hospitals overwhelmed which is a big threat to the healthcare system. Malaysian Health officials clamor that the current wave of the infections which began in September is likely to see daily infections grow to as much as 8,000 by May if strict measures are not put in place.
The fresh lockdown which will commence on Wednesday will stop all interstate movement and all social activities to allow the government to take proper measures to contain the spread of the Coronavirus in Malaysia.
According to the Prime Minister, the first batch of vaccines that the Malaysian regulators have just approved is expected to arrive in the country by the end of February.
