The recent spike in Covid-19 cases in Malaysia has caused the government to issue the Movement Control Order (MCO) that will take effect from March 18 -31. In an effort to slow the rate of the spread of Covid-19, everyone is required to stay indoors and at home for the next two weeks.
It is absolutely paramount that every Malaysian should do their part and restrict their movement during this period as the Health Director-General Datuk Seri Noor Hisham Abdullah warned that a third wave of Covid-19 will sweep the country if serious action is not taken.
For the latest updates on the Covid-19 situation in Malaysia, you can always turn to the Health Ministry’s Facebook page for announcements.
Now, even though we have to stay home for the foreseeable future until things get better, let us not despair because there has never been a better time to bond with our loved ones.
Apart from staying home with those who matter to you most, there are plenty of other ways in which we can utilise our time. With that said, The Peak has compiled five terrific activities you can partake during the MCO period. Who knows, you may actually emerge healthier and more knowledgable after this period.
