As well as serious implications for people’s health, COVID-19 (coronavirus) is significantly impacting businesses and the economy. It is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment, but the young, elderly and those with ailments are at high risk.
Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO)
The success of controlling Covid-19 during this CMCO depends on societal and community behaviour, which could be different during the CMCO and when the MCO is totally lifted. "Until we have specific treatment and vaccines for Covid-19, we will expect this disease to be around. Even if we manage to reduce the cases in Malaysia to zero, the threat will still be around due to international travelling."
