SYNOPSIS

The world in 2020 has been an eventful one with the disease caused by the strand of virus called Coronavirus which was later named by the World Health Organisation ("WHO") as Covid-19 (short for Coronavirus Disease 2019). The impacts and effects of Covid-19 have been such that the WHO has "upgraded" the disease to a pandemic.  Governments throughout the world have implemented various measures to combat and to contain the spread of the disease and in the process these have caused certain degree of economic and commercial dislocation.  Malaysia is no exception.  But the measures taken and implemented had inevitably caused disruptions and even given rise to impossibility for contractual obligations to be performed.  After much expectation, the Temporary Measures for Reducing the Impact of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) Act 2020 (“the Act”) was passed by both houses of Parliament (Dewan Rakyat and Dewan Negara) and came into effect on 23 October 2020.  The talk will focus on the key provisions of the Act, with focus on how the inability to perform contractual obligations, and the enforcement of corresponding rights, due to the measures taken to combat Covid-19 are dealt with in the Act.
