All secondary schools in Malaysia, which closed mid-March due to the movement control order (RMCO), can resume operations for certain students starting June 24. Education Minister Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin said that students who are candidates of public exams, as well as international exams of the same standard, can return to school. A total of 500,440 Form Five, Form Six, Sijil Vokasional Malaysia (SVM), Sijil Tinggi Agama (STAM) and Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) students from 2,440 schools and a few hundred international schools can resume classes on June 24. Students have not been able to attend school since the MCO was implemented on March 18 in an attempt to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Malaysia reported just two new Covid-19 cases today, the lowest since the MCO was implemented in mid-March. Director General of Health, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah told the daily media conference that one of the new cases was imported, while the other is a local transmission involving a non-Malaysian.
