All Sectors of Economy to Reopen During MCO 2.0:
According to The Star, it is reported that all economic sectors will be opened, including retail. This is because the current MCO has affected small businesses and SMEs more severely than the previous lockdown.
“The ministries in charge of businesses have given their input and stated that many small businesses, which comprise a major part of the Malaysian economy, cannot continue as it is without some kind of breathing space, ” said a source.
However, another source cited that the National Security Council (NSC) has yet to discuss whether to implement stricter SOP in the economic sector.
A source added that the majority of clusters were caused by a lax in the SOP. Therefore, the current SOP will maintain and further tighten if necessary.
The extended MCO 2.0 from 5-18th of February 2021 will allow all business sectors to be reopened including hair salons and retails. Though not the decisions above are not finalised, but if necessary, they will have to utilize personal protective equipment.
