KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 – A total of 781 compounds were issued while 10 people were remanded on the second day of the total lockdown for not following the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) set under the current Movement Control Order 3.0 (from June 1-14). One person was also set on police bail.

In a press statement Wednesday, Senior Minister of Security Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said a total of 71,549 inspections were carried out to check on the compliance of SOPs nationwide under the MCO.3.

A total of 3,555 teams were involved in the enforcement of the SOPs.

The offences included not maintaining social distance, not wearing masks, not registering details before entering a premise, interstate and inter-district travelling without permission, premises not observing SOPs, dining at premises, carrying extra passengers in vehicles.

On Wednesday, Malaysia reported 126 deaths including 10 who were brought in dead due to the COVID-19 virus.

While a MCO is ongoing, and vaccination is also being carried out towards a herd immunity, cooperation is being sought from the people to observe the SOPs and reduce their exposure to the virus by way of staying home, as this will be a key factor to counter the spread of the virus.
