However, the number of patients requiring intensive care reached a new record today.

In Selangor (2,291), one in 10 new Covid-19 cases was detected among those who reported symptoms but were not close contacts or linked to existing clusters. 

This is considerably better than on May 26 when it was one in six.

The Health Ministry reported another 75 deaths today attributed to Covid-19 bringing the national death toll to 3,611.
