It has been 59 days since Malaysians adapted living under the movement control order (MCO) implemented by government on March 18 to curb the Covid-19 pandemic. The purpose of this movement to isolate the source of the coronavirus outbreak.
Many things have changed – life in the city does not seem so busy, businesses and educational institutions are still closed, only essential services are allowed to continue, and many are using this “break” to be with their families.
