The Health Ministry has advised the National Security Council (NSC) to extend the recovery movement control order (RMCO) beyond Aug 31.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said it was now up to the NSC and Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to decide if the RMCO would be extended, reports TheStar.

“The ministry has made the proposal to consider extending the RMCO until we get better control of the situation.

“The Prime Minister will announce this soon as the RMCO period until Aug 31 is almost coming to an end,” he said today.

Dr Adham also said the World Health Organisation (WHO) had predicted that the Covid-19 pandemic would last for at least two more years.
