Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar reminded the public not to organise any mass gathering event or functions.

He said the public should learn a lesson from other countries which have loosened restriction on social distancing directly (not in stages) resulting in a second wave.

“We are doing this in stages as we are concerned about this situation,” he said.

“Solemnisation of marriage (Akad Nikah) is allowed, but not reception. It is only limited up to 30 people (among families), and big events (as usual) will not be allowed in three months,” the minister added.
