KUALA LUMPUR, July 20 -- Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin will be delivering a special address on the latest developments on the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) at 4 pm today.
It will be broadcast 'live' via local TV stations Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM), Bernama TV, TV3 and Astro Awani.
On June 7, the prime minister had announced the RMCO to replace the earlier Conditional Movement Control Order after Malaysia successfully contained spread of COVID-19 in the country.
The RMCO which came into effect on June 10 has seen almost economic sectors reopening but guided by strict COVID-19 prevention standard operating procedures. It is due to end on Aug 31.
Earlier today, an incorrect message was making the rounds on social media that the prime minister will be delivering the same address at 3 pm today via TV3, NTV7, 8TV and TV9.
On the COVID-19 front, as of yesterday, Malaysia had recorded 8,779 confirmed cases while the number of recoveries stood at 8,553 (97.4%). The death toll stands at 123 (1.40%)
