KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia will deploy its military from Sunday (March 22) to help police enforce the government’s order for people to stay at home amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Defence Minister Ismail Sabri told a news conference on Friday that the decision was made at a national emergency meeting to have the military assist the police with the Restriction of Movement Order.

“The military will be deployed from Sunday. We are confident that with help from the military, the control order will be better implemented. And we hope the people will continue to comply with the government’s instructions,” he said.
