According to the Royal Household of the palace, Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin, the King has expressed his concerns over the impact arising from the containment measures on the country’s economy.
And as the Movement Control Order (MCO) goes into its sixth week, the King has urged Malaysians to preserve in dealing with the challenges until situation is able to return to normalcy.
