Kuala Lumpur: the latest ghost city


As Malaysia goes under a strict two weeks lockdown, the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur have gone dead. FMCO, also known as the full movement control order, was imposed to flatten out the infection curve of COVID-19 cases that have skyrocketed last week.
Under the new lockdown guidelines, only essential economic services like wet markets and supermarkets operate under strict guidelines. The dine-in services are stopped, and only take away, and food delivery services are allowed.
Malaysia has gone under a strict nationwide lockdown for the second time, as the country has been hit with the third wave and have seen a rise in the cases last Saturday. These restrictions are the same that were imposed in the previous year between March and May.
Travel between interstate and inter-district has been prohibited. The economic and social activities have been barred, and people can travel within a radius of 10km and only two people from one household are allowed to leave their home and buy essentials.
Prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin announced that the restrictions would be imposed until 14th June. The mobile roadblocks have been asked to get activated so that travel can be discouraged during the lockdown.
