THE Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) is ending the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) at Kampung Haji Baki tomorrow (Nov 13), effectively cancelling the order which was scheduled to end on Nov 17.

According to Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas, the committee decided to end the EMCO there as all the outstanding sample results from the second screening at the village returned negative results for Covid-19 today.

On Tuesday, Uggah had announced the extension of the EMCO at the village for another week from Nov 11 to Nov 17 while awaiting test results.

The EMCO was implemented from Oct 28 to Nov 10 after five positive Covid-19 cases were detected on Oct 27 following contact tracing. The index case was a local man who works as a private technician at a government hospital here. – Borneo Post.
