KUCHING: The State Disaster Management Committee has extended the 7pm to 7am restriction on Sarawakians until April 14 in line with the extension of the federal Movement Control Order (MCO) to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg (pix) announced the extension on the restriction, which requires all businesses to close and prohibits the public from venturing out of their homes, at a press conference this afternoon after chairing a state security council meeting.

He also said that the State Legislative Assembly sitting, which was initially rescheduled to April 13, would now be held on April 16. — The Borneo Post
