||The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent movement restriction order (MCO) imposed an acute threat to the well-being of families caused by the threats linked to the social disruption including financial insecurity, caregiving burden, and confinement-related stress (e.g., crowding, changes to the arrangement, and routine). Also, many people have needed help even if they were not infected. This paper investigates the wellbeing of families in Malaysia during the pandemic.
