“Malaysia and the people is well known to have high humanitarian values and we should uphold to it,” said Ismail in a press conference on the daily report of MCO here today.

In another development, the government has decided to lift the Enhanced MCO that was imposed in Kampung Dato’ Ibrahim Majid and Bandar Baru Dato’ Ibrahim Majid at Simpang Renggam, Johor on April 28.

According to Ismail, the EMCO that was imposed on a tahfiz school and a house in Sungai Lui, Hulu Langat, Selangor is extended to another week till May 5.

 Since the enforcement of MCO on March 18, the national blood supply has dropped to 33%.
