Total lockdown announced

31 May 2021 / Malaysia

A total lockdown will be implemented in Malaysia, in which no social and economic sectors, except essential services will be allowed to operate, from tomorrow (1 June) until 14 June.

The decision was made after taking into account the current situation of Covid-19 transmission in Malaysia with the number of daily cases having exceeded 8,000 cases and active cases exceeding 70,000 cases.

Following the government’s decision to implement a full closure of the economic and social sectors, the Ministry of Finance will detail the assistance package to the people and the affected economic sectors.
