KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 — The government has now enforced the seventh phase of the Enhanced movement control order (EMCO) in Selayang Baru, Gombak, Selangor, involving six zones until May 3, 2020.

In a press conference today, Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that the latest EMCO phase was to curb the Covid-19 infection from further spreading, after taking into concerns the probabilities of an infection chain in the Selayang Wholesale Market, also known as the Kuala Lumpur Wholesale Market.

“These steps would enable tracing activities to be done throughout this (EMCO) enforcement period,” he said.

The zones placed under this EMCO are:

Zone A: Jalan Indah 3 dan Jalan Indah 5A, Selayang Indah, Gombak, Selangor

Zone B: Jalan Indah 21, Lembah Indah, Selayang Baru, Gombak, Selangor

Zone C: Jalan Besar Selayang Baru, Jalan 1 dan Jalan Indah 21, Selayang Baru, Gombak, Selangor

Zone D: Jalan 3, 5, 7 dan 9, Selayang Baru, Gombak, Selangor

Zone E: Jalan 2, 4, 6 dan 8, Selayang Baru, Gombak, Selangor

Zone F: Blok A, B dan C, Selayang Makmur, Gombak, Selangor

Similar to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) of all other areas under EMCOs, Ismail Sabri again reminded residents that no visitors are allowed into residential areas and all non-essential business activities must close.

Residents are also prohibited from leaving the area until the EMCO period ends, while a medical base would be set up in the vicinity.

“Residents, remain calm and give your fullest cooperation to the Ministry of Health (MOH) workers and abide by all orders from the authorities.

“This morning, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Harun visited the area to ensure that food was being distributed systematically in the EMCO zone,” he said, adding that aid in the form of basic necessities was being distributed by the Welfare Department (JKM).

Ismail said that residents needing help or who need clarifications may contact the Gombak district Disaster Line (03-6120 1092 / 03-6126 1500) or the Gombak district police headquarters command centre (03-6126 2247 / 03-6126 2240).
