METRO MANILA – The Ministry of Health (MOH) has urged the National Security Council (MKN) for the extension of the recovery movement control order (RMCO) after August 31.

Adham said that they have made recommendation to MKN and the prime minister to extend the RMCO until the situation is under control. However, the decision is still up to PM Muhyiddin.
