Menara City One EMCO: Day 29/29 - Good News at Last!

| Day 41/42 of Malaysian MCO | Day 28/29 of City One EMCO |

Today is the 29th day of the lock-down imposed on our condo, and we wait with pragmatic optimism the announcement on its fate during the Senior Minister (Defence) Press Conference later in the afternoon.

It has been drizzling the whole morning since we woke up. The weather is somewhat gloomy yet calming, the dark clouds an ominous sign of things to come later in the afternoon, perhaps?

After all that has happened throughout the EMCO, we would like to clearly state that while we regret the misfortune that has befallen our home, never once have we regretted staying here at Menara City One:

the view each and every morning.. we wouldn't want it any other way!

Then at about 11am Dr Eliza, a resident and committee member of the Residents' Association posted this blessed message on our residents' chat group:


In a gist KKM has:

  • decided against holding any further Covid-19 screenings
  • admitted the 2 suspected positive cases announced earlier were actually negative; therefore the total positive cases at City One is reduced to 51
  • recommended for EMCO to be lifted (but with possibly 2 extra days)
  • requested for us not to go to the press as DG has taken personal interest 

Therefore our EMCO should be lifted by 30th April!

Later at 2pm during Senior Minister (Defence)'s Press Conference there was not mention of Menara City One's EMCO.

At 4.30pm today during his daily press conference the Health Ministry Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah announced *1 additional positive case at Menara City One which now stands at 54 cases.

*according to Dr Eliza the positive case is from the cluster of  family members and housemates (estimated to be around 40 of them) of the 11 positive cases detected on 22nd April that were taken away by KKM to an undisclosed location in Setiawangsa to be quarantined. The positive case is therefore not found among the existing residents of Menara City One.

It has been 3 weeks since we were PCR tested, and we assume that our results are negative. We ask that everyone we know to pray for our continued health, safety and well-being.
