Will there be 52 new and much stricter MCO SOP rules for the next 6 months, starting 4 February 2021?
Take a look at the viral post, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : 52 New MCO SOP Rules For Next Six Months!
This claim of 52 new and much stricter MCO SOP rules that will kick off on 4 February 2021 has gone viral on social media.
52 New MCO SOP Rules For Next 6 Months : Utter Nonsense!
This viral message about 52 new MCO SOP rules that will kick off on 4 February 2021 is nonsense.
That’s because some of them are already part of the latest SOP! And while some of them could possibly be implemented in the future, the rest are unlikely to be come true.
KKM Confirmed That They Are FALSE
On 31 January 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health finally announced that the viral message was FALSE.
But when we posted this a week earlier, we pointed out the many discrepancies in the viral message below :
These Rules Are Already Part Of The MCO SOP
These Rules Could Possibly Be Implemented Later
These stricter rules could possibly be implemented as part of a very strict MCO lockdown :
These Rules Are Unlikely To Happen
These MCO rules are unlikely to happen, because…
10) Cannot go out after 8pm
47) Under 18 years old cannot go out after 6pm
– Under current MCO SOP, no one is supposed to leave the house, except to purchase food, necessities and for cycling and jogging, so these rules are nonsensical.
7) Only 50 people allowed in a supermarket at any one time
– It is very hard for supermarkets to manage the number of people going in and out
13) Only 5 persons allowed to enter store at a time
– It is impossible to implement a limit like that, because stores vary in size
14) Isolation time: 14-28 days
– quarantine time has been reduced to 10 days, and there is no logic to increasing it to 28 days
15) Ambulance-Isolation Center: Rm80
16) Hospitalization fee: Rm110 per day
18) Electronic Isolation Bracelet charge: Rm50
– as COVID-19 is a public health emergency, the government is unlikely to charge anyone
17) Disinfection Fee: Rm550 per shop
– the government is not in the business of sanitising shops
– sanitisation of shops have been undertaken by private companies
22) Chinese New Year banned
– you cannot ban a public holiday, but the government will likely ban public gatherings, and perhaps even family gatherings (except those from the same household).
26) Transport company: 6am-12pm
– the delivery of essential goods has never been restricted even during the first MCO, and that won’t change because people need these supplies
– limiting working hours will also not help cut down on infection rates
27) All 3-star hotels to become quarantine centers
– the government may offer 3-star hotels the opportunity to serve as quarantine centres, but it won’t be mandatory
– the cost will also be significantly higher than the MAEPS quarantine centre.
28) 24 Highways to be closed
– as flow of essential goods is necessary, it would not be logical to close any highway
– existing travel restrictions are good enough to prevent interstate travel
30) Electricity bill discount: 10-15%
31) Water bill discount: 10-25%
45) West Malaysia electricity bill discount 10%
46) 13% discount on electricity for West Malaysia
– It is very unlikely that the government can afford to pay for such high discounts
– the conflicting electricity bill discount for West Malaysia shows that this list is just made up
32) Hawker subsidy: Rm300
– This is unlikely to happen because there’s no registry of hawkers, which makes it impossible for the government to implement such a scheme
33) 15% discount on national land tax
44) Peninsula house tax discount 10%
37) Extension of land tax for 1 year
– These are unlikely to happen because it won’t help the rakyat much, only the wealthy who own many houses
34) Can withdraw RM15K Pension at one time
– The government already allowed the withdrawal of RM10K from EPF in 2021
– It is very unlikely that they will allow another withdrawal of RM15K in the same year
36) Extend personal loan for 6 months
– The banks are already restructuring personal loans into fixed rate loans, so another loan moratorium is unlikely
40) 25% discount on rent for SMEs
– How do you force private owners to give SMEs a 25% discount on their rents?
50) Important sectors prohibited from commencement
– Critical sectors involved in the production of food and essential supplies was allowed during the first MCO, and will not be prohibited, because well, they are essential!
