PKPD In Malaysia Extended To 3 January 2021 : FAKE NEWS!

That infographic is fake and was edited from previous infographics released by the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN).

For the Doubting Thomases of the world who always ask, “How you know?”, here are the facts why…

Fact #1 : There Is No PKPD / EMCO Of Any State In Malaysia

There is no PKPD or EMCO covering an entire state or federal territory in Malaysia.

Only PKPB (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Bersyarat) or CMCO (Conditional Movement Control Order) exists for these seven states or federal territories :

  • North : Penang, Perak
  • East : Terengganu, Kelantan
  • Central : Selangor, Kuala Lumpur
  • South : Negeri Sembilan

Fact #2 : Labuan Is A Federal Territory

Labuan is always listed as WP Labuan in government infographics, because it is a federal territory, like Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.

Fact #3 : The Government Has Debunked It As Fake

The Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) has just publicly debunked the infographic as fake (with our English translation).

INI ADALAH PALSU!! Tak pasti jangan kongsi.

THIS IS FALSE!! Don’t share if not sure.
