Malaysia to deploy army amid movement curbs to contain coronavirus

KUALA LUMPUR, March 20 (Reuters) - Malaysia will deploy the army from Sunday to assist police in enforcing a restricted movement order aimed at reining in the spread of a coronavirus, the government said.

Friday’s announcement follows curbs imposed on travel and businesses this week, as infections spiked to 900, with two dead. The majority of cases have been linked to a gathering of 16,000 Muslim missionaries late last month. (Reporting by Joseph Sipalan; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
