People will have to wait until 26 October to know the status of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in Selangor and the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Labuan

Any announcement with regards to the status of whether or not the CMCO in these areas is extended depends on the Ministry of Health's (MOH) study of the situation next week.

According to Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, such an announcement will be done at least a day before the current CMCO order is scheduling to end on 27 October.

"The Ministry of Health will have to conduct an analysis first on areas affected by the CMCO. After the analysis is carried out, the ministry will advise the National Security Council (NSC) special meeting. Following which, a decision will be made," he said during his daily press briefing today, 24 October.

"We shall wait and I believe we may announce the decision whether or not to continue with the enforcement at the latest a day before it ends."

In the meantime, he asked people to have patience

Wait for the government's announcement.
