Kota Kinabalu: With the country’s transition to the pre-endemic Covid-19 phase since April 2 this year, all prior Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) have been abolished unless specifically stated.

Sabah’s Covid-19 spokesperson Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun gave the explanation in response to confusion among some pre-schools about the proportion of pupils physically present in each class. 

Meanwhile, Sabah on Wednesday recorded a total of 176 Covid-19 cases on Wednesday, an increase by 12 cases compared to Tuesday’s 164. 

“The increase in the positive rate from 8.52 per cent to 9.11 per cent affects the increase in the number of infections today,” he said. He said the number of test samples Wednesday was 2,031, slightly less than Tuesday’s 2,194 samples.

Five districts recorded double-digit infections. The districts are Kota Kinabalu 56 cases (+15), Tawau 24 cases (-4), Penampang 13 cases (+2), Lahad Datu 11 cases (+4) and Tuaran 10 cases (-2). 

Lahad Datu recorded only seven cases on Tuesday, while Sandakan which recorded 12 cases on Tuesday recorded only eight new infections on Wednesday.

Eight districts did not record any new infections in the past 24 hours. Among them are Sipitang, Semporna, Putatan and Pitas which previously recorded infections. A total of 173 out of 176 cases on Wednesday are in Category One and Two, one case in Category Three and two in Category Four.
