PUTRAJAYA: Police have warned those who are already in their hometowns from returning to the cities, saying authorities are ready to block them as part of measures to curb people’s mobility under the Covid-19 movement control order (MCO).

“I hope this does not happen. As advised earlier stay where you are,” Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said today.

The action includes blockades at 23 toll plazas along inter-state highways nationwide.

“Here, motorists will be asked to return. There is no need to go back to bigger cities to work. Police will not allow,” he added.
