Since the COVID-19 pandemic recognized by the World Health Organization on 11th March 2020, I was wondered about Kuala Lumpur city, how it’s going to be in the lockdown? And the day comes, on the 17th March 2020 the Malaysian government announced the lockdown for the country starting on the 18th March 2020, since then the city become a ghost city, nobody in and nobody out.
Kuala Lumpur city is locked down, all it’s entrance has check points, all the movement has been controlled in the city, but there are some activities still on like the hospitals, clinics, police stations, some of government sectors, restaurants and super markets, people can go to the city if they have a letter from their employers, and companies need to be authorized from the government to operate during this Move Control Order (MCO), this what they called it, but we will stick to the lockdown.
The movement in Kuala Lumpur city is very difficult, but if you are a tourist you can go out only for food, as one tourist locked in Kuala Lumpur showed in his YouTube channel how is Kuala Lumpur city during the MCO, if you caught without any reason of going out they fine you RM 1000, or jailing two years and it can up to five years, or both.
This all about COVID-19 in Kuala Lumpur
