PETALING JAYA: The government has no plans to restrict cross-border travel or impose new restrictions for the time being, says Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
At a press conference, Ismail said the health ministry is analysing the risks of cross-border travel.
While the matter was still being studied, Ismail said those who are afraid that they may infect others by travelling to other areas, can get themselves tested three days before travelling.
Yesterday, health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said 14 Covid-19 clusters were caused by cross-border travel and social activities from Dec 7.
Interstate travel restrictions were lifted in early December.
On the floods in several states, Ismail said NGOs that wanted to assist those who were affected or donate goods should contact the relevant district disaster management and relief committees.
Separately, Ismail announced the extension of the enhanced movement control order at the Amber Court Apartment in Bentong, Pahang, and Muar Rehabilitation Centre in Johor until Jan 20 because of the need to screen more people and the increase in Covid-19 cases in the localities.
