COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 5,271 new cases, the lowest in around three weeks.

The decline was in part helped by the fact that new cases in Selangor fell to under 2,000, the first time since May 18.

The number of active cases also fell by 2,359 after weeks of steady increases, helping to ease some strain on the healthcare system.

The last time active cases fell by the thousands was March 9.

  • Active cases: 84,269
  • Patients in ICUs: 902
  • Intubated: 447

However, the number of ICU admissions continue to rise and has hit a new record today. The previous record was 890 cases yesterday.

It should also be noted that testing numbers are slightly lower over weekends and public holidays.

Nevertheless, a total of 81,708 tests have been conducted today, of which 6.45 percent returned a positive result.

In the last seven days including today, an average of 98,020 tests conducted per day, while the average test positivity rate each day was 7.22 percent.

New daily Covid-19 cases remain elevated but have been stabilising in the past week since the "total lockdown" came into force on June 1.

Meanwhile, the 703 fresh infections in Sarawak today are still on the higher end of the spectrum. The highest number of new cases that the state recorded was 960 on April 16.
