Malaysia’s lockdown has been extended for another two weeks, until April 14. The number of COVID-19 cases in the country more than doubled over the past week to almost 1,800, with 19 deaths. Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has warned that the situation will get worse before it gets better. Some 50,000 police and army personnel are manning roadblocks to deter non-essential travel. Drones are also being deployed to 12 hotspots across the country to monitor crowds and capture images to identify those defying the movement control order.
