Translations of FAQs by the National Security Council (MKN) regarding the Movement Control Order (MCO)

Meanwhile, we would like to remind everyone to stay calm and safe during this pandemic. Trust only credible sources and double-check before sharing any news. To aid the dissemination of credible information, a group of concerned Malaysians had voluntarily translated the FAQs released by the Majlis Keselamatan Negara regarding the Movement Control Order (MCO) in effect from 18th to 14th March 2020. The translations are available in English and Mandarin. IDEAS is helping to re-publish these documents in good faith and to help spread them to a wider audience, as an importance of individual responsibility.
