KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia has relaxed coronavirus restrictions in most states as Muslims begin fasting on Tuesday (April 13), allowing the return of popular Ramadan bazaars and the evening prayer service, although new Covid-19 cases have remained above 1,000 a day for most of this year.
All food premises will be allowed to remain open from midnight until 6am throughout Ramadan, when previously they could operate only until midnight.
In mid-January, Malaysia banned travelling between its 13 states. The health authorities are under public pressure to quickly decide on allowing people to return to their home towns for the Hari Raya holidays in mid-May.
