SINGAPORE -- Malaysia will extend restrictions on individual travel until June 9, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said Sunday, as new coronavirus infections in the country continue to reach double digits daily.

The Southeast Asian nation introduced rules March 18 that severely restricted business activity and prevented people from going out. Though some restrictions were eased on May 4, allowing most economic activity to resume, Malaysia continues to prohibit its people from traveling abroad or between states.
