Several MCO regulations relaxed, Malaysians rejoice

Several Movement Control Order (MCO) regulations have been relaxed, with perhaps the happiest one (at least for some Malaysian men) being that now two people in a family can sit in a car. Does this mean a not-too-distant end to being forced to stay at home?

Meanwhile, there’s been a spike in the number of new Covid-19 cases in the country; a single mum has her custodial sentence for an MCO violation reduced to a fine; a senior minister goes all silly and defends the indefensible; and a cop is charged over the alleged rape of two foreign women.
