KUALALUMPUR – Malaysia will not extend a national state of emergency when it ends on Aug. 1, state news agency Bernama reported on Monday, citing law minister Takiyuddin Hassan.

The government will not ask the king to extend the emergency, which was imposed over the country’s coronavirus outbreak, he said. Malaysia has been under emergency rule since January.
