Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Thursday (April 23) announced that the movement control order (MCO) will be extended by another two weeks.
It is the third time that the government has decided to extend the MCO.

“The focus currently is to identify measures and initiatives that can spur economic growth in the short and medium term, as well as to encourage confidence of the people and investors to regenerate the nation’s economy.
