The message contains purported suggestions related to the implementation of the movement-control order (MCO) throughout Selangor and the closure of schools, as well as the reasons behind the decision.

“We can confirm that the message is fake,” the secretariat said, when contacted by reporters today.

Selangor has been recording the highest number of new Covid-19 infections in the country since April 27.

On May 30, Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari held a meeting with the Selangor Security Council Committee to review the implementation of the conditional MCO (CMCO) in the state.
