Professor Datuk Dr Awang Bulgiba explained the rationale of imposing the movement control order as a form of forced social distancing (FSD) in a letter that was published in the Star Newspaper today. FSD is simply social distancing that is forced on a population by the authorities because voluntary social distancing is not being followed. The reason for this FSD is the Covid-19 pandemic that has frightened everyone with its speed and scale. Unlike the curfew that I remember when movements were strictly curtailed, this FSD does not compel one to remain indoors all the time.
