COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 7,748 new Covid-19 cases and 86 deaths. 

It has been 23 days since the start of the third movement control order (MCO 3.0) and yet there are no signs of things getting better.

The number of active Covid-19 patients, patients needing intensive care or patients needing ventilators all reached new highs today.

  • Active cases: 84,369
  • Patients in ICU: 883
  • Intubated: 459

Cases by states

  • Selangor (2,612)
  • Kuala Lumpur (851)
  • Negeri Sembilan (709)
  • Sarawak (706)
  • Johor (446)
  • Penang (376)
  • Perak (371)
  • Sabah (287)
  • Kelantan (286)
  • Kedah (263)
  • Malacca (234)
  • Labuan (230)
  • Terengganu (203)
  • Pahang (146)
  • Putrajaya (20)
  • Perlis (8)

A record 851 new cases were detected in Kuala Lumpur.

Notably, Labuan (230) - with a population of just 100,000 - was still reporting a relatively high number of infections.

In Selangor (2,612), a relatively significant number of people - one in six - were tested positive for Covid-19 only after they reported symptoms. 

As of last night, the R-naught has remained at 1.06 for the second straight day. Every territory or state in the country has a R-naught of more than 1.00. 

A R-naught of more than 1.00 suggests that the spread of Covid-19 is accelerating.

Deaths

The Health Ministry reported another 86 deaths attributed to Covid-19 today, bringing the death toll to 3,182.

The new deaths were reported in Selangor (20), Johor (14), Negeri Sembilan (13), Kuala Lumpur (7), Sarawak (5), Kedah (4), Pahang (3), Perak (3), Penang (3), Malacca (3), Labuan (3), Sabah (3), Kelantan (2), Terengganu (2) and Perlis (1).

There were two victims who were centenarians. The youngest was a 26-year-old victim in Labuan. Seven victims were pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Details of the deaths are documented on Malaysiakini's Covid-19 tracker site.
