METHODOLOGY & PROFILE
1. FOCUS ON
The extensions of the ban are killing the hope of tourism revival.
The virus was confirmed to have reached Malaysia in late January 2020, when it was detected on travelers from China.
Within a few weeks, Malaysia had recorded the largest cumulative number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in Southeast Asia, breaching the 2,000 active cases mark by the end of March, from fewer than 30 cases at the beginning of the month.
Malaysia has extended the movement control order for states with a high number of Covid-19 cases until March 4, 2021.
This is the third extension of the MCO, which was supposed to end on February 19, 2021.
The tourism and hotel industries are particularly hit by the evolution of the measures. In consequence, several voices are rising, requesting measures to avoid the increase of closures and jobs cut in these sectors.
