A total of 10 additional confirmed COVID-19 cases were reported to the National Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) MOH today.

Health Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah Cumulatively there are now 7,629 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Malaysia.

“Therefore, there are currently 1,345 active and infective COVID-19 cases. They have all been isolated and given treatment,” he said.

Currently, eight confirmed COVID-19 cases are receiving treatment in intensive care units (ICU), and of these, four cases are on ventilation support.

“Fortunately, no additional COVID-19 death was reported to the National CPRC MOH today.

“Cumulatively, there are 115 COVID-19 deaths in Malaysia (1.51 per cent of total cumulative cases).

“All 10 additional cases reported today are local transmission, of which five are non-Malaysians. No imported cases are reported today.”

Meanwhile, to help Malaysians adapt to their daily life activities, including planning for daily trips and identifying at-risk areas where COVID-19 cases are reported, the public can use the ‘Hotspot Tracker’ function through the MySejahtera app.

“This function can help the public to identify if there are cases reported within a radius of one kilometre of the searched location within the last 28 days.

“The public is advised to avoid non-essential travel to COVID-19 infection at risk areas.

“Therefore, this function can be used as a guide by every user in making the decision to travel from one location to another.

“This is in line with the self-empowerment of individuals and Malaysians in adjusting to the new norms and normal of everyday life.

“The public needs to take care of themselves, their families and the community around them to keep it free from COVID-19,” he said.

To this end, Noor Hisham urged the public to download the MySejahtera app, to enable the use of important functionalities, including self-assessment of health status and the latest update health from the National CPRC, MOH.
